Motorola's Atrix HD has been out for a few months now, but much like other carrier-branded Android phones, there's no way to root and install a custom ROM without some serious hacker activity. In a bid to appease power users who wish to have an easier go at things when it comes to unlocking a bootloader, Motorola is introducing the Atrix HD Developer Edition. A few months back, Samsung did something similar with the Galaxy S III Developer Edition, and now that Moto's following suit, we're starting to see a trend that we're definitely in favor of. This new phone allows infinite customization possibilities... Read more...
The smartphone wars are seriously heating up, and with Android recently taking the market share lead in the U.S., it's no surprise to see Motorola continuing to pop out new Android-based phones. With the Atrix 4G and Atrix 2 behind us, the Atrix HD is stepping up to keep the name and legacy alive. It's a pretty special phone, actually. While you may assume it's just another Android option in AT&T's lineup, it's the first of its kind to be offered at $99.99 on a 2-year contract. It offers a true 720p display on a 4.5" capacitive multi-touch panel, a splash resistant case (with a touch of Kevlar,... Read more...
Who says Motorola has lost its edge? After coming out with one of the planet's slimmest smartphones in the DROID RAZR, the company has revealed its next phone: the Atrix HD. The original Atrix was quite the hit (the keyboard peripheral, perhaps not so much), and this new one is pushing the limits of how large a phone screen can be. Up there with the Optimus Vu from LG and the Galaxy Note from Samsung, this unit has a 4.5" Colorboost HD (1280x720) display. It actually looks a lot like the new DROID RAZR, but the internals are souped right up. There's a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.0 (Ice... Read more...
It didn't take long for Motorola to take a second stab at the Atrix. The Atrix 2, officially announced two weeks ago (press shots found their way to the Web back in September) is now available for order for just 99 from AT&T with a two-year contract. That's a great price for a dual-core smartphone, but also happens to be twice what Amazon wants for it. That's right, Amazon is selling the Atrix 2 for just $49, provided you can hang tight for another week or two. As you can imagine, the deal is proving mighty popular and already Amazon is showing it listed as "Backordered. Usually ships in 1... Read more...
One of the persistent criticisms of the Motorola Atrix and HTC Inspire is that the devices don't deliver anything like the wireless speeds AT&T claims they're capable of. AT&T has been coyly playing cat and mouse over the question of whether or not its phones consistently deliver "4G" speeds but has finally admitted that it had capped the phones' upload speeds. An April update to remove the limitation is currently in the works. One of the major problems of communicating such differences and limitations is that there's no industry-standard definition on what 4G is (or isn't).  Service... Read more...
Motorola is looking into voice quality issues on its Atrix smartphone.  Some Atrix users have reported that the people they talk to say their voices sound muted. Mark, a Motorola employee and forum manager, recently wrote on the Motorola Owners' Forum, "We've been looking into it for some time however we've only recently gotten phones back from customers." Mark also asked users to provide some additional information, such as whether or not they use a case, what Noise Suppression level they have set, and other questions that could help Motorola gain knowledge about the problem. A post by a... Read more...
It’s been reported that the hot new Motorola ATRIX 4G smartphone has been hit by slow data speeds. As some owners have discovered, the upload speeds on the ATRIX 4G when using the phone’s HSUPA radio is slower than one would expect. Now, AT&T is admitting to some of the data slowdowns, though it is doing so in a roundabout sort of way. In response to many customer complaints as well as a Better Business Bureau inquiry, AT&T says it is not capping the ATRIX 4G’s data speeds. However, the wireless provider did say it is performing testing on the service in preparations for... Read more...
Are we seeing the next big (or even small) trend in mobile technology? Motorola recently shook up the space with their Atrix 4G, an AT&T smartphone that did something that no other smartphone had done before. Rather than shipping by its lonesome, the Atrix 4G shipped with an optional docking station, which is really a brain-less netbook shell. Pop the Atrix 4G into the dock slot, and suddenly you've got an Android-powered computer. What's funny is that this is history repeating itself all over again, but the timing may be better now. Palm's Foleo was similar to this, and it was spiked before... Read more...
The release date for the highly anticipated Motorola Atrix 4G has been moved up from March 6 to Feb. 22, according to reports and a Tweet from Seth Bloom, who is in charge of "Blogger relations for AT&T" via Fleishman-Hillard. The Tweet indicates that Motorola and AT&T beat their target timing. Originally scheduled for March 6, Atrix 4G in-store sales will begin on February 22, instead. The Tweet added that existing pre-orders will be shipped for delivery on February 21, the day before retail launch. The Atrix 4G is more than a smartphone; it's a modular ecosystem that can plug-into a laptop... Read more...
If you thought the battle between AT&T and Verizon Wireless was heated before, it's really on starting today. The Verizon iPhone is about to start shipping to customers, breaking AT&T's stranglehold on the phone and providing real competition in a market that needs it so very badly. And now AT&T has little choice but to step it up when it comes to Android and other rivaling platforms. When the iPhone just isn't enough anymore, what's a carrier to do? Getting Motorola's Atrix 4G isn't a bad start. This Android 2.2-based smartphone stole the show at CES 2011, and now both companies have... Read more...
Motorola has made big claims for its upcoming Atrix 4G smartphone, calling it the world's most powerful smartphone. Indeed, the Atrix 4G has impressive specs, but many have expected that power to come at a price. Now that pricing details have leaked for the Atrix 4G, you may be pleasantly surprised or you may be disappointed, depending on what you were expecting to see from this smartphone. According to a (now unavailable) Amazon product page and a Costco inventory screen, the high-end Atrix 4G smartphone could be available for as little as $150. That's a terrific price, considering most of today's... Read more...

There are only a select few PC enthusiasts who like to show off their hardware more than gamers do. With all the questing, spying, and fragging going on, they still find the time to appreciate the machine that grants them such pleasure. As you know though, these days, any old box just won't do. No; something a little flashier than the mundane is needed, especially if you're headed to a big LAN Party. While we've reviewed some great cases over the years here at HotHardware, producing a case that receives a gamer's approval has it's own set of special requirements.... Read more...
