Motorola Atrix 2 Fails to Impress in Latest Leak
We’ve known for quite awhile now that Motorola has been prepping a sequel to the original Motorola Atrix, we’ve even seen it show up in photos, and now today, BGR has treated us to another pictorial and some possible specifications for the device as well. The leak comes just a day after it became apparent that the Atrix 2 aka Atrix HD aka Motorola Edison would not be a 4G LTE device.
This new leak has also confirmed that this will not be a 4G LTE device and has also detailed some of the upcoming device’s specifications.
It’ll be launching with a dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video capture, and Android Gingerbread 2.3.5. Unfortunately, we don’t get confirmation of the rumored HD display and don’t know exactly what kind of processor is on the inside, although it’s assumed that it will be a TI OMAP.
The lack of 4G LTE is going to be a pretty big disappointment for some of you, we’re sure and it’s a little disheartening that Motorola won’t be releasing a full-fledged successor to the Atrix. To be honest, this is disappointing and this is a phone that won’t stand a chance in a market that is about to be populated by a new Nexus and the iPhone 5.
Still, if the specs and the price are right, some people might ultimately just want to settle for a nice, solid HSPA+ 4G device.
Anyone else getting tired of Motorola’s refreshes?

I just got a $827.89 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HTV for only $251.92, they are both coming tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prîces at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for. I use https://alturl.com/tngvm

I havew absolutely no interest in AT&T at this point in time. When they get their 4g LTE network up and functioning and some decent phones to run on it, then it may be worth considering. I suppose the Atrix 2 could have a niche market out there. I sure wouldn’t buy one.

Motorola has been on my meh list for pretty much all of 2011. This ain’t helping.

I own the first ATRIX and it is by far better than any phone I have owned to date… my first true smart phone was the palm treo windows 5.0 version. Loved that phone. Then the Motorola Q. It was great. Then I stepped down and went with a iphone 3g. It was great at first. But I found out that it was missing major bells and whistles, so I jailbroke it. Made it better but still weak. Then the iphone 4. Nice screen but that’s it. Jailbreak was the only option for my enjoyment. Then the ATRIX arrived. Bliss. Enough said
