Motrola's Atrix 2 is Bigger, Downloads Faster

Paul Lilly

Now that the dust has settled on the initial iPhone 4S frenzy, Motorola felt it was a good time to trot out its Atrix 2 smartphone, another dual-core device that will be available at AT&T on October 16th. The Atrix 2 doesn't bring any groundbreaking changes over its predecessor, but it does offer a bigger 4.3-inch qHD display and Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).

There are a handful of subtle changes that accompany the Atrix 2. Motorola updated the body that's made of plastic ( Boy Genius Report says it "feels weighty and solid in the hand"), the upgraded camera snaps photos at up to 8MP versus 5MP, it can capture 1080p video at 30fps, and it runs at "4G speeds" on AT&T's HSPA+ network.

Just about everything else is the same as before, including the 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB ROM, 2GB microSD card (expandable to 32GB), and the ability to connect to a dock.

The Atrix 2 will sell for $100 with a two-year contract.
