Motorola Unveils the Atrix 4G

clock January 6, 2011 00:20 by author Jeremy

Of all that's happened at CES and AT&T's Developer Summit so far, one particular bit caught my attention: the Motorola Atrix. Perhaps it's because my iPhone 3G is starting to resemble a dumbphone instead of a smartphone (thanks to the number of times I've dropped it - at least you know it's durable!), or perhaps it's the specs of the Atrix. Either way, I'm hooked.

So what's so special about this phone, you ask? Let's take a look at the pictures that the lovely engadget crew attained during the press event (thanks engadget!):

...abuh? Did that screen just say dual-core processor? Let's throw on top of that, the fact that this device apparently comes with 1 GB of ram (double-take: ...abuh?), and a 1930mAh battery (triple-take: ...abuh?!). This thing is probably going to run better than my laptop.

"Today we are partnering to create a brand new category for consumers. We think it's a new paradigm for mobile," said Sanjay Jha, Motorola's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, just minutes before showing the crowd the new "webtop" and "laptop dock".

Webtop is an application on the phone that allows for full internet (including tabs!), keyboard, and mouse usage; when paired with the Laptop Dock (which comes at a thin size of 13.9mm), you can use its keyboard and gain a bigger screen. The phone is connected to the back of the Laptop Dock.

And in case the Laptop Dock attachment is too much for you, the HD Dock is a smaller unit that looks like it can be plugged into a computer monitor.

As nifty as this phone is, there's no official release date as of yet. Motorola is scheduled to have another press event at CES, so perhaps more details will be posted then. But for now, just know that this thing is a powerhouse.

UPDATE: AT&T has posted the Atrix 4G on their website! Click for details. Full specs shown!

Best Products of 2010

clock December 31, 2010 01:02 by author Jeremy

European Commission Pushes for Standardized Chargers

clock December 30, 2010 00:39 by author Jeremy

In June 2009, fourteen mobile-phone producing companies agreed to start using a standardized charger for all data-enabled mobile phones. The agreen-upon connector will be the Micro USB.

The fourteen companies included are: Apple, Emblaze Mobile, Huawei Technologies, LGE, Motorola, NEC, Nokia, Qualcomm, Research in Motion (RIM), SonyEricsson, TCT Mobile (ALCATEL), Texas Instruments and Atmel. The first mobile phones to use the new standardized Micro USB charger should hit the European market as soon as 2011's first quarter.

"It is a true win-win situation," the press release states. "The common charger will make life easier for consumers, reduce waste, and benefit businesses."

IBM Predicts Holographic Cell Phones

clock December 28, 2010 00:15 by author Jeremy

IBM has produced a yearly tradition of predicting the technological advancements in the next 5 years. One of the more popular predictions this year for 2015, was the ability for cell phones to product holographic images.

These images are thought to be seen without the use of 3D glasses, and will be interactive as well.

Other predictions made include social networks acting as data input; computer heat being used to provide warmth in housing; GPS navigation systems and car sensors learning and predicting environmental patterns (accidents, traffic, daily routes, etc); and newer advancements in batteries and battery technology, including the use of kinetic energy as a power source.

Bloomberg provides a more in-depth analysis of the predictions.
