SAN DIEGO--We had a chance to take a look at the Motorola Atrix 2 here just hours after it was announced, and while it is very similar to its predecessor, it does have a number of improvements that are worth noting.
The design, for example, seems sleeker and more striking. It has a longer and larger 4.3-inch qHD display, and Motorola bumped up the resolution to 960x540. As a result, pixels seem crisper and denser than the display on the Droid Bionic, and it seems more colorful as well. We're glad Motorola swapped out the glossy back with a more textured surface for a better feel in the hand.
On the whole though, don't expect tons of changes with the Atrix 2. It still has a dual-core 1GHz processor, albeit with TI instead of Nvidia. And no it's not an LTE phone, but AT&T did bump up the speeds to HSPA+ 21Mbps. It also has that same Webtop connectivity that turns the phone into a portable PC whenever it's docked into a corresponding Webtop accessory. Motorola says it'll be compatible with the upcoming Lapdock 100, which is smaller than the previous Lapdock and should fit more than just one Motorola handset. … Read more
