Motorola’s ATRIX 4G packs dual-core processor, powers laptop dock

CES

Remember that long rumored Motorola Olympus, a dual-core Android beast that was destined for AT&T? Today at CES, we got a quick look at exactly what that handset (or a handset just like it), now named the ATRIX 4G, has in store for us. The ATRIX 4G sports a dual-core 1GHz processor paired with 1GB of RAM, qHD high-resolution display, HSPA+ (4G) radio, and Android 2.2. The device can connect to a laptop-dock accessory that houses a laptop battery, keyboard and display. From there your ATRIX powers the laptop-like device — a device that Motorola’s CEO bragged had better battery life than Apple’s new Macbook Air. Here is AT&T’s official blurb on the new device:

The Motorola ATRIX™ 4G Android 2.2 smartphone will be offered exclusively by AT&T and is the world’s most powerful smartphone. Featuring a 1 GHz dual-core processor, ATRIX 4G delivers a remarkable combination of application processing power, 4G network speed and a high-resolution qHD display. It will be complemented by breakthrough accessories that include a revolutionary, super-thin laptop dock — for which ATRIX 4G is the “engine” — and an HD media dock that uses ATRIX 4G’s HDMI video output capabilities and processing power to enable a revolutionary browsing, application and media experience. For more information, visit http://www.att.com/atrix4G (website available after 10 a.m. PT on Jan. 5). This device is slated for launch in the first quarter of 2011, only for AT&T customers.

Although not mentioned by AT&T, Motorola did note that the ATRIX has a 1930mAh battery to keep it powered on and crushing numbers throughout the day (the DROID X has a 1500mAh battery). Who’s ready to rock one of these bad boys?
