    The fact they didn't mention Tegra 2 is the most worrying to me.

    Let alone the fact they didn't mention it can capture 1080p video, which Tegra 2 is capable of. You're the only ones who mentioned that "not Tegra 2" tidbit.

    I signed up just so i could respond to your post.

    It is a Tegra 2 processor. Please see http://developer.motorola.com/products/atrix-mb860... for confirmation that it is a NVIDIA Tegra 2 AP20H Dual Core processor.

    You scared me - hopefully this will prevent from scaring others.

    How can you turn such an exciting hardware into such a boring piece of crap? This is what I hate about smartphones (even though I myself am using WM devices since 2006) - what happened to design? they all look the same Reply

    It looks nice, IMO. At the beginning I wasn't digging the thick bezel around the Atrix 4G's screen (compared to the HTC Infuse 4G and the Samsung announced next to it; both were almost edge-to-edge), but I think it makes the device more "uniform".

    I would have loved a next-gen phone that looks like the Xperia Arc, but you can't have it all...

    Why not 1080p? Could that be a Moto typo? Reply

    yeah, 1020p would be 1813.33 x 1020. I'm not familiar with that resolution.

    I do think the qHD screen is neat though. Didn't the Zune HD have an eighth-HD screen?

    Perfect pixel scaling FTW!

    This is the first thing I noticed as well. That has got to be a typo, it should be 1080p. Reply

    This is the feature I've been waiting for. I've had various devices including smartphones and Internet tablets, and have tried various VGA adapters, bluetooth keyboards and mice to try to simulate this feature. It has never been a great experience. Reply

    Was there a front facing camera on the Droid Bionic? If so that will be all the features I wanted in my next phone (though launching with Gingerbread would have been nice). Now we just need availability. Reply

    Is it safe to assume the Xoom sports an IPS display? It has the same dimensions and specs as the Asus slate which is IPS, right?

    They make a killer phone, but go cheap-butt by cutting out a mems gyro?

    That's odd.

    Otherwise a very top-notch Android phone(s).

    I don't understand why the smartphone or even tablet need to support 1080p ?
    The size of display seems never need it (Is 720p enough ?)
    The only reason I can think of is to connect it to a bigger display for home or meeting presentation.
    Is it a good trad-off for power of mobile device to support it ?

    Any idea ?

    I know ATRIX was only announced for AT&T, but what is the likelihood that the ATRIX could be used on Verizon's network (yes, I know it would only be 3G) given that the bands listed for the phone are WCDMA?

    I thought Verizon said last year that they would allow any CDMA phone on their network? How does that actually work, if true?

    Those are AT&T's HSPA bands. There's too much confusion around the "CDMA" label, lol. Reply

    Anand and crew,

    See side box on the right, a bit down the page where "Processor" is listed as Nvidia Tegra 2.
