Here’s some good news on a Friday afternoon. Over the next few weeks, AT&T will begin pushing out an update for the Motorola Atrix 4G. The software bump — which was first spotted by Droid Matters earlier today — will, most notably, remove the uplink speed restrictions currently present on the dual-core handset. Here is AT&T’s official statement:

Today, AT&T began to deploy an update for the HTC Inspire™ 4G that provides, among other features, the addition of enhanced uplink speed technology. (HSUPA).

An update that adds HSUPA for the Motorola ATRIX 4G has cleared testing and will be deployed soon.

Both updates will roll out to customers of both phones over the coming weeks.  Users will get a message on their device notifying them of an update and to connect to Wi-Fi to download it.  After downloading it, the user needs to only allow the update to automatically install.

There you have it. The handcuffs are being taken off your Motorola Atrix 4G. Enjoy.
