Motorola’s Atrix looks like one heck of an Android smartphone. It features a dual-core processor with 16GB of on board memory and 32GB added on in the form of a microSD. It has one of the most unique accessories available in the form of its Lapdock that adds a notebook form factor display and keyboard. The only “ding” I assign to the Atrix is that it ships with Android OS 2.2 (Froyo) instead of 2.3 (Gingerbread).
So, what does iFixit do with this interesting new Android smartphone? Why, tear it apart, of course.
Here’s a couple of interesting items they noted/found:
- 8-core GeForce GPU
- 960×540 resolution display protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass (like the original Moto Droid)
- Power button has a capacitive fingerprint scanner to verify ID
iFixit gives the Atrix a 9 repairability score (out of a possible 10). Sounds like a winner so far.
