Say hello to the latest Atrix

Boasting a big 4.5-inch screen, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, fast processor, and 4G LTE, the $99.99 Motorola Atrix HD is a pretty good deal on AT&T.

Basic typing

Aside from the Swype input method, the Atrix HD offers a simple virtual keyboard nearly identical to the stock Android ICS layout.

Thin as a Razr

The Atrix HD definitely has a thinness reminiscent of the Droid Razr. It measures just a third of an inch at its trimmest point.

Kevlar style

The Motorola Atrix HD rocks a Kevlar-coated back plate just like its Droid Razr siblings on Verizon.

Good and bad apps

You'll find some useful apps preinstalled on the Motorola Atrix HD. Unfortunately many other installed apps are bloatware that can't be removed.

Moto's special UI

It may not be the Motoblur of old, but Motorola adds special UI tweaks like templates for adding Android home screens.
