Motorola Atrix 4G Specs, a smartphone that’s also a laptop

It's a smartphone. It's a computer. It's the Motorola Atrix!
Motorola ATRIX 4G is no other but the long-rumored Motorola Olympus - a Tegra 2-powered dual-core Android beast, which seems to be dubbed by Moto as "the world's most powerful smartphone". The Olympian of a phone will of course have a giant 4" qHD screen, as well as the whooping 1GB of RAM and a monstrous 1930mAh battery to keep the whole thing alive.

Motorola's getting a lot of press this morning after announcing its much-hyped competitor to the iPad, the Xoom. But the Atrix, also unveiled at Motorola's press conference yesterday, is generating quite a lot of buzz as well.
The novel idea behind the Atrix is that it's a smartphone that plugs into the shell of a laptop. Unlike the doomed Palm Foleo, which synced a computer with a Palm Treo, all the computing power in the Atrix is in the smartphone.

The phone, which Motorola is calling the "world's most powerful smartphone," has some great guts: an NVIDIA Tegra 2, four-inch display, a front-facing camera and a rear-facing 5MP camera, 11GB RAM, 16GB on-board memory, and a microSD card slot. It runs Android 2.2 FroYo.
The laptop, which is being dubbed a "webtop," has an 11.6-inch display, two USB ports and a full keyboard. Interestingly, this device would support features like, fingerprint login security, Android 2.2 platform and WebTop application in which the company claims it will give you a new type of computer-like experience.
Electronista had a brief hands-on with the Atrix, and had high praise for the hardware and design, with slight misgivings about the software. Obviously, it's still early to make a call on the Atrix's performance, but Electronista noted that performance slowed down considerably when the phone was docked into the laptop shell.
