Motorola Atrix Launches On Orange Tomorrow

Orange will be launching the new Motorola Atrix Android-based smartphone tomorrow, and the mobile phone operator is highlighting the fact that the phone has an in-built biometric fingerprint reader as the latest must have feature.

The operator went as far as putting pictures of a lovely lady - dressed like a hot Bond girl - playing with the sleek sophisticated phone, with the MI5 building in the background.

The phone will be available for existing Orange customers from £35 per month on a two year contract with 600 minutes, unlimited texts, 750MB data allowance, 50MMS and unlimited Wi-Fi.

The Atrix was launched at the beginning of the year and comes with a dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 SoC clocked at 1GHz, 1GB RAM and 16GB onboard storage. It has a huge 4-inch screen with a 960x540 pixel resolution covered by a Gorilla Glass Touch display layer.

Other features include a rear five megapixel camera with HD video recording and a front two megapixel one, a microSD card reader, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a huge 1900mAh battery.

To get the best out of the handset, you may choose to have a HD multimedia dock which adds three USB ports and an HDMI port to the phone. Also available is a Lapdock which essentially converts the Atrix into a laptop.

This accessory - which will be sold separately - has a 11.6-inch screen, a three cell 36Wh battery that delivers up to eight hours battery life and weighs a mere 1.1Kg. You can already register your interest in the device here.
