AT&T’s newest phone

Earlier on February 3rd, At&t announced that starting on the 13th, users will be allowed to pre-order their newest phone, the Motorola Atrix, which will be coming out on March 6th.  The phone will run on the brand new 4G network and will go for $199.99 with a new two-year contract.

The Atrix will be powered by Android 2.2 and a insanely fast Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor. Besides having 1GB of RAM, it will also have a 4 inch touch screen display along with both a rear and front facing camera.

The down side? It costs $45 a month in order to get 2GB of data compared to other companies such as Verizon that offers unlimited data for $30 a month. All in all, look s like a good phone but may be a little bit pricey. Thoughts?

Multi-core Processors for Smartphones!!!

That’s right, as the title says, multi-core processors have now come to the mobile phone industry.  Earlier today, LG announced that Europe and Asia will be the first to see the first phone with multi-core processing power, the Optimus 2X.  The smartphone is a Google Android phone and comes with the dual core Tegra 2 chip made by Nvidia.

Now not too much is known about the phone but the dual-core is enough to draw some people in.  With this new processor(s), the phone’s overall speed will increase significantly, it will be able to playback 1080p video without any lag, and it is said to increase webpage loading by an outstanding 33%!

So although not much else is known about the phone, I already give it a big rating because of the dual-core processor. What are your thoughts? Comment below!
