by Reads (6,296)

Six months after announcing the product at CES 2011, AT&T has lowered the pricetag on Motorola’s first dual-core smartphone, the Android 2.2 OS-enabled Atrix 4G, to only $100 with a two-year contract. This apparently isn’t a sale, but a permanent price change.

Motorola ATRIX 4G from AT&TKey features of the slick black 4G phone include a dual-core NVidia Tegra 2 processor; 1GB of RAM; a built-in fingerprint reader; a WiFi hotspot; a 5 megapixel camera that doubles as a 730p video camera; and a bright 4-inch qHD touchscreen, offering 540 x 960 resolution.

The Atrix 4G also comes with abundant software, including an Adobe Flash 10.1 player; a Quickoffice v3.0 document editor; and Motorola’s Motoblur user interface (UI) and widgets.

Webtop Laptop Dock and HD/Desktop Dock
An important feature of this smartphone is a Webtop app from Motorola aimed at turning the Atrix 4G into a nearly complete PC with the addition of one of the two docks that Motorola also provides. The two docks for the Atrix include a laptop dock and an HD/desktop dock.

When connected to one of the docks, the Atriix switches from Android to a Linux environment which includes a full Firefox browser.

The Atrix 4G received an initial rollout at CES 2011. AT&T had previously priced the phone at $200 with a two-year contract. Pricing on the docks and other Atrix accessories remains the same, though.
