Dual processor smart phone ships out today in UK
Motorola Mobility has announced that beginning today, its ATRIX smartphone will be available in the UK exclusively through the carrier Orange. Orange is offering the ATRIX free to customers with a £35 ($58 USD) per month, 24 month contract. The Work and Play kit, which includes a remote control, mouse, HD multimedia dock and keyboard is being offered at a special price of £50 ($83 USD). It normally retails for £130 ($215). Orange is discounting the Lapdock from its regular price of £300 ($496 USD).
The ATRIX runs Android 2.2, sports a four-inch 540x960 HD screen and a five-megapixel camera. Motorola claims that its imbedded dual core processor can run a full Mozilla Firefox browser and supports Adobe Flash Player.
The ATRIX has been available in the US since March. AT&T has been selling it for $200 with a new or extended contract.
