Motorola Atrix review: First Look
An Android smartphone that converts into a laptop with access to a virtualised Windows 7 desktop? We're intrigued, very intrigued.
It's still possible to make and receive calls and texts, as well as access all your Android apps and media, through a 'mobile view' window that sits beside your other webtop windows.
The phone itself has a 4in screen. Motorola's spokesperson wasn't able to confirm its exact resolution, merely describing it as 'quarter HD' which seems rather vague to us. Motorola did confirm that it's an LCD rather than an OLED screen.
The Atrix is the first smartphone we've seen to have a built-in fingerprint reader which will make it of immediate interest to security-conscious users and companies. We weren't able to try it out at Motorola's London preview event, but it looks simple to use simply swipe your registered finger over the reader to unlock the phone.
We're genuinely impressed by Motorola Atrix. It's the most intriguing Android smartphone that we're seen in a long time. Motorola hasn't yet decided which docks will come included with the phone and which will be sold separately. The company also has yet to confirm UK pricing or availability, but we'll bring you a full review as soon as we can.
