Motorola ATRIX 4G 4.1.57 update available, no AT&T HSUPA support yet

Software version 4.1.57 for the Motorola ATRIX 4G is now available. The 17MB file, issued by Motorola, adds a number of improvements but is not the expected AT&T update that includes HSUPA support. After downloading the update, Motorola says users should notice the following changes:

  • Bluetooth: Improved multimedia experience with Bluetooth devices as well as the ability to use phone with additional headsets.
  • Fingerprint reader: Improved fingerprint reader performance.
  • Battery: Improved battery performance for longer battery life.
  • Screen: Display will turn off automatically now while charging directly on wall charger.
  • Phone stability: Improved stability resulting in fewer occurrences of touch unresponsiveness and/of programs quitting unexpectedly.
  • Car dock: Improved performance of car dock and 3.5mm jack.

It’s been reported that the update may cause some issues with those who have rooted their phones. AT&T has said that the upcoming HSUPA software update, which should ratchet up upload speeds on the ATRIX 4G and Inspire 4G, will land in April. Hit the jump for instructions on installing software version 4.1.57 on your ATRIX 4G.

Sagem Porsche P9522 Phone unveiled

Good news for you Porsche aficionados out there. Looks like Sagem and Porsche are teaming up again for a second version of their Porsche-Branded mobile phone. Carved out of aluminum and hand assembled in France, the sleek and sexy candy bar has all the goods under the hood except for 3G. Supposedly there is no demand for 3G amongst Sagem/Porsche customers. With the presumed future widespread availability of Wi-Fi for mobile Internet access, the designers opted to cut it out. Mmm. Other specs include:

  • 2.8″ touchscreen with reinforced mineral glass
  • 5 megapixel camera
  • Built-in GPS receiver
  • Wi-Fi connectivity
  • Built-in fingerprint reader

Available in France next month for a mere €600 ($875).
