The upcoming edition of the Motorola Atrix, or you may call it Edison, has surfaced one more time. But this time it has not been showed in unclear images, instead we now have a complete hands-on ahead of the official announcement.
The most obvious alteration from the preceding model is the design and in any case as to what I think that it looks way too better than its predecessor. Not to mention that it does feel a bit thinner and larger in dimension than previous.
Reportedly, the display doesn’t use the PenTile matrix design of the Atrix display any more, heading towards the greater and generally used RGB design. However the size of the display and resolution stays unchanged at 4.3” and QHD correspondingly.
The new model runs on a 1GHz dual-core TI OMAP processor with PowerVR SGX 540 GPU and 1GB RAM, identical to the one in the DROID BIONIC. It also has 8GB of onboard memory together with a micro SD card slot.
In the connectivity department, it has a HDMI port on along with a USB port and should function with the WebTop dock intended for the original Atrix. The Edison functions just on the HSPA+ network, yet, and not on AT&T’s new LTE network. The Edison also lacks the fingerprint scanner that is present on the Atrix.
As far as operating system goes, it is running on Android OS V2.3.5 with a very small fry edition of the Motorola Blur UI, along with a minimal AT&T bloat ware. There is no information for the availability of this phone or its price has been disclosed.
