AT&T committed to the launch of 12 Android smartphones in 2011 but once the carrier’s latest batch of devices hits store shelves, it will have surpassed that goal. AT&T on Tuesday announced five new Android-powered handsets from the CTIA show in San Diego, bringing the carrier’s total to 19 devices this year. The star of the show is likely the highly anticipated Motorola ATRIX 2, pictured above, which features a 4.3-inch qHD display, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 8GB of storage, 1GB of RAM, HSPA+ 21 and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The ATRIX 2 will be released on October 16th for just $99.99 with a 2-year contract. Read on for more.
BGR has just been given photos of the follow up to the original Motorola ATRIX 4G, the Motorola ATRIX 2, internally known as the Motorola Edison. The Motorola ATRIX 2 will not be an LTE device according to our source, though the phone will launch with a dual-core processor (either 1.2 or 1.5GHz TI OMAP, we’d assume), an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video capture, and Android Gingerbread 2.3.5. We weren’t given a launch time-frame, though we’d expect the phone to touch down in the next few months, most likely around Thanksgiving. Check out all of the photos in our Motorola ATRIX 2 gallery!
