Motorola makes the Atrix HD official on AT&T for only $99By Shawn Knight
Motorola has officially ousted the Atrix HD less than a week after the phone prematurely showed up on Motorola's website before being hastily removed. We now know that the handset will be available on AT&T starting July 15 and eventually showing up at Bell Canada shortly after.
As per the accidental posting last week, the Atrix HD packs a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor (reportedly the same one that comes in the Samsung Galaxy S III), 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal flash storage. The 4G LTE-capable handset features a 4.5-inch 720p display operating at 1,280 x 720, good enough for a 329 pixel per inch rating - just slightly higher than the iPhone's Retina display. That, along with Motorola's Colorboost technology, should result in a great looking display.
Also on tap is an 8MP zero-lag rear facing camera capable of 1080p video recording at 30 frames per second and a 1.3MP front facing camera, a 1,780mAh battery and a new Motorola widget called Circle Widget. This widget gives the user at-a-glance access to weather, time, notifications, data usage, battery information and settings.
The rear of the phone is coated with DuPont Kevlar, much like we saw on the Rarz earlier this year. Motorola will be shipping this handset with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich like we mentioned last week but perhaps the best thing about the Atrix HD is its price: only $99 with a two year service agreement through AT&T.
