We have all been waiting to see the first Dual-Core device this year, and Motorola has given it to us! The Motorola Atrix aka Motorola Olympus has been announced today at CES and will be heading to AT&T. There is said to be more dual-core love coming from Motorola to other carriers as well, so we we keep you up to speed as we get more in. The specs of this have it running Android OS 2.2 with Motoblur (will eventually be upgraded to OS 2.3 Gingerbread), 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 Dual-Core processor, 1GB RAM and 1930 mAh battery, Flash Player 10.1, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, and a VGA front-facing camera.
Noticing a trend here? First we had the Infuse 4G from Samsung, and now we’ve got the Atrix 4G from Motorola featuring a whopping 1GB of RAM — so it would seem this is the device we’d had rumored as the Olympus. Announced at AT&T’s CES-based Developer Summit today, the phone is the first to be unveiled for the carrier’s lineup with a dual-core processor, but the fun doesn’t stop there: it’s got a 960 x 540 display that gives the iPhone 4′s pixel density a run for its money, a fingerprint reader, support for 802.11n on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, a ridiculous 1,930mAh battery that dwarfs the average 1,300 to 1,500mAh cell you see in most modern smartphones, HD video capture, and a wild set of peripherals — HD Dock and Laptop Dock, primarily — that allow you to use the Atrix in a “webtop mode” that bears a striking resemblance to a desktop operating system. Follow the break for the full press release!
Update: Bell will be releasing this device as the Motorola Atrix, not the Motorola Atrix 4G.
