Motorola’s ‘superphone’ the Atrix will be available at Orange from May, the pair have announced.
Consumers are able to register their interest online or reserve a device from Orange retail shops and Orange telesales ahead of launch in early May.
The handset, which will launch exclusively on Orange, will be free on a £35 per month, 24 month contract, including 600 minutes, 750MB data allowance, unlimited texts, 50 MMS and unlimited Wi-Fi.
The handset features a dual-core processor that delivers up to 2GHz of processing power. As a result, the Motorola Atrix is capable of opening web pages twice as fast as most other smartphones. It has been designed to become a user’s primary ‘digital hub’ to create and edit media content on the go. It also features a biometric fingerprint reader for easily unlocking the phone.
The handset runs on Android and offers a webtop application which runs a full Mozilla Firefox 3.6 browser and supports Adobe Flash Player for rich graphics, animation and video.
Motorola has also developed two companion accessory docks for purchase separately.
Orange UK director of propositions Simeon Bird said: ‘We’re pleased to be bringing Motorola Atrix to our customers as it’s one of the most innovative handsets we’ve seen this year and it supports our passion for innovation. With its intelligent support accessories, the handset not only stands out from the rest of the pack, but the overall experience takes mobile computing to the next level.’
Motorola Mobility vice president marketing for international markets Andrew Morley said: ‘The award winning Motorola Atrix ushers in a new era in mobile computing. We are excited to be bringing this highly anticipated smartphone to the UK with Orange.’
