Forum Added for the Motorola Atrix HD
By now, we’re all familiar with the Motorola Atrix 4G and Atrix 2 available on AT&T. In order to differentiate themselves from the sea of other Android devices, they offer innovative Webtop functionality. This allows them to serve as basic laptops and desktops by simply attaching the appropriate dock.
Motorola has now announced the latest in the Atrix line, the Motorola Atrix HD. Unfortunately, however, the device breaks away from its Atrix heritage by not offering Webtop functionality—a hallmark feature of its predecessors. However, it incorporates many traits from other devices such as the Motorola Droid RAZR with its Kevlar back and incredibly thin profile (8.4 mm).
The specs aren’t too bad either, as it packs a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4, backed up by 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of ROM, and a microSD card slot. It also manages to pack a 4.5″ 1280 x 720 “ColorBoost” LCD that comes in at 330 ppi. And surprisingly, similar to the Galaxy Nexus, it features on-screen Android navigation buttons. Finally, all of this hardware is powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

This year, cardboard returned...
