AT&T Switches on HSUPA to Make Atrix a Little More Like Actual 4G

Something that's fun to do if you're a company is stick the word 4G onto something, and instantly make it awesome—like "x-treme" in the 90s. It's mostly marketing. But AT&T's Atrix 4G is about to get more of its promised, though originally crippled "4G" power with an HSUPA-enabling software update, boosting upload… » 5/03/11 4:34pm 5/03/11 4:34pm

Score a Motorola Atrix for $49.99 This Weekend on AmazonWireless

AT&T's 4G network hasn't gotten the best coverage lately, but all that is scheduled to change any day now, so you may as well jump on board!

AT&T's Fake 4G Phones May Actually Get Real 4G Soon

It's been well documented that AT&T's 4G phones aren't just slow—their upload speeds are often slower than its 3G network. So what happened to that extra G? Turns out it's not the network itself that's borked; it's the phones. AT&T has intentionally crippled the Motorola Atrix and HTC Inspire—the carrier's only… » 3/30/11 10:40am 3/30/11 10:40am

Motorola Atrix vs LG Optimus 2X: Dual-Core Benchmark Battle Go!

The Motorola Atrix 4G and the LG Optimus 2X both feature the same Tegra 2 Chipset that uses the same 1.2 Ghz, dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor, the same GeForce ULP GPU and the same version of Android (2.2.1). Yet, when benchmarked, the Optimus 2X outgunned the Atrix in nearly every test (the Galaxy S even jumped… » 3/04/11 9:15pm 3/04/11 9:15pm

Motorola Atrix 4G Materializes on Amazon for $150

Moto's well-specced netbook-docking phone, the Atrix 4G, popped up on Amazon for a list price of $150. Obviously, this seems a bit low for both the phone and laptop dock, so if this listing is accurate, the assumption here is that you'll be able to buy each component separately. Engadget also says that the listing has… » 1/27/11 11:20pm 1/27/11 11:20pm

Motorola's Crazy Docking Phone Atrix Landing March 1st?

We loved Motorola's Atrix phone at CES, which docks into a PC for properly sci-fi computing. But when oh when will we get our hands on it? According to some leaked AT&T docs, it'll be launching at the carrier on March the 1st. That's not too long to wait, is it? There's also the added advantage of it being after the… » 1/14/11 5:40am 1/14/11 5:40am
