iPhone 4S Rival Alert : Motorola Atrix Down To £261

The Motorola Atrix can now be had for as little as £261.59 from Handtec, almost half its original selling price, making it one of the cheapest dual core smartphones on the market.

What sets it apart from other smartphones is its ability to convert to a laptop thanks to a clever docking station, and a proprietary webtop application that runs a full version of Mozilla Firefox 3.6.

Sadly though the lapdock, as it is known, still carries a premium and costs almost as much as the phone itself.

As for the Atrix, it runs on a dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 SoC clocked at 1GHz with 1GB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, a 4-inch 960x540 pixel capacitive touchscreen, a five megapixel rear camera, a two megapixel front one, HD video recording capabilities, USB and HDMI ports, a biometric fingerprint reader, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, dual microphones and a massive 1930mAh battery.

The phone still runs on Froyo but should be upgradable towards the end of the year to Ice Cream Sandwich.

Even at £261, the Atrix is significantly more expensive than the £229 HTC Evo 3D smartphone on sale at UK Retailer Asda.

He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
