Motorola outs Atrix HD, its first phone under Google

Motorola appears to have leaked photos and specs of its newest phone, the Atrix HD.

Motorola has just leaked the Atrix HD, the company's first new Android phone as a Google subsidiary, seemingly by accident.

A page on Motorola's website showed an image of the Atrix HD, along with specs. The page has since vanished.

The device's specs include a 4.5-inch display with 720p resolution, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8GB of built-in storage, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. Judging from the name and logo pictured on the front of the device, it will be an AT&T phone and a follow-up to the Atrix 2, which launched last fall.

In terms of design, the Atrix HD looks a lot like the Droid RAZR, with a slim 0.33-inch profile, Kevlar-coated back, and a hump where the camera resides. Unlike the RAZR, the Atrix HD uses software navigation buttons similar to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

Motorola's website said the Atrix HD will run Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), not Android 4.1. The phone appears to be skinned with some light user interface modifications, and includes the same Smart Actions app that debuted in the Droid RAZR last year.

As Engadget has reported, Motorola may also be readying a RAZR HD for Verizon and a Photon Q LTE for Sprint. I'd be surprised if Google doesn't eventually tap Motorola to build some pure Android handsets, but so far there's nothing on the radar.

As for the Atrix HD, there's no word yet on a price or release date. Expect AT&T to weigh in on those matters soon.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
