    Back in March, we heard from AT&T about its Ice Cream Sandwich update plans for Androids from a number of manufacturers. On that list was Motorola's Atrix 4G. Motorola released its own chart showing the ICS update status for a number of its handsets, and the company reiterated those plans to bring Android 4.0 to the Atrix 4G. Now, however, Motorola has modified that list, and the Atrix, along with some other handsets, are no longer tapped for ICS. What happened? Comparing the current list, updated today, to previous incarnations, we can see a number of phones where Motorola has changed ...

    A few hours ago, we learned form HTC that users on AT&T were about to get Ice Cream Sandwich on their Vivid smartphones. Since then, AT&T has released its own statement, confirming today's availability of ICS for the Vivid, and giving us an official list of the phones it plans to see upgraded to Android 4.0. Much like the list released by Verizon at the beginning of the month, we've already heard a lot of this from manufacturers, but it's reassuring to see things backed-up by carriers, as we all know how much influence they have over whether or not our phones get updates. In addition to ...

    This week we've already seen Motorola send out soak test invites for the Droid RAZR -- though the invitation might refer to the already leaked bugfix and improvement build 6.12.173 -- and now Atrix 4G users are getting invites too. According to the wording, Motorola Feedback Network members are now able to participate at an Atrix 4G soak opportunity. The pre-release update for AT&T Atrix 4G owners could be anyone's guess: while some believe we might be seeing a pre-release Ice Cream Sandwich update, others consider we're likely to face, like in the Droid RAZR's case, a bugfix and ...

    Motorola is running its ads in the U.K. for the Atrix smartphone and is referring to the device as the world's most powerful one. After receiving two complaints from Samsung Galaxy S II users that claim their phone is the fastest, the U.K. Advertising Standards Agency has banned the Motorola Atrix commercial. The Agency told Motorola that the Galaxy S II has a faster processor but in its defense, the American phone-maker claimed that the speed of the CPU alone has nothing to do with a phone being faster than another. Additionally, Motorola stated that the Galaxy S II couldn't operate ...

    If you have a U.S. Motorola Atrix 4G on AT&T you already have it running Android 2.3 Gingerbread as the update was rolled-out for the phone around a month ago. If you live in Europe and thus own a Motorola Atrix you will have to wait a little bit more for Google's latest. According to the manufacturer, the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update will hit European Motorola Atrix phone in the fourth quarter of the year. The status update says early Q4 which could mean October but as far as updates are concerned, there's really no way in telling if that deadline will be met. Anyways, good thing is ...

    An unknown Motorola Android has been spotted in China, showing off its AT&T branding and a design that's awfully reminiscent of the Atrix 4G. Could Motorola be planning a hardware refresh for the model, are we looking at an all-new addition to AT&T's lineup, or is something else going on here? Despite the basic similarities to the Atrix, there are a few clear differences we can see in these pics. First off, the camera get a bump to eight megapixels, and now claims the ability to record video in 1080p. Along its edge, the position of buttons and ports is slightly off from the Atrix, ...

    If you're looking to pick up an Android on AT&T that's running Gingerbread, your options are pretty limited; you've got the HTC Status, Motorola's Atrix is getting its update currently, and now the carrier has access to Samsung's Nexus S. That's progress, sure, but we're in the second half of 2011, where the coming approach of Ice Cream Sandwich is nearer to us in time than last year's release of Gingerbread. If you've been stressing over if your Android will ever be getting an update of its own, the carrier is speaking up with some assurances, letting subscribers know that all the ...

    Motorola Atrix 4G owners on AT&T have been waiting for an official Android Gingerbread update for quite a while now and they knew it was coming in July. Last week it even entered soak test mode and is now available for all.

What's even more important is that the new ROM also brings you the possibility to side-load applications so check for the update ...

    Everyone is expecting the Motorola Atrix 4G on AT&T to get its official Android 2.3 Gingerbread update in July and it appears that it might just happen. The carrier is reportedly releasing a Gingerbread pre-release to 1,000 volunteers. Rumor has it that the new update will not only bring Google's latest and greatest platform to the phone but Motorola is also unlocking the bootloader -- the unlocked international bootloader is already available. If the feedback is positive we should expect to see the official ROM refresh soon and that rumored July timeframe might be turning to reality. If ...

    An international version of the unlocked bootloader for Motorola Atrix 4G is now available through an Orange UK update released recently with support for the service. This release builds upon the existing leaked Gingerbread 2.3 ROM which includes a fastboot-unlockable bootloader, however that leak is only compatible with the USA based AT&T Atrix 4G and not international versions, while this new one comes from an official update, and is compatible with international devices. An official update is expected from Motorola enabling the unlocked bootloader soon, per Motorola's earlier promise. ...

    With the latest Android 2.3 Gingerbread ROM leak came the news that the Motorola Atrix 4G, to get the refresh soon in July, will also get its bootloader unlocked straight from the manufacturer. It looks like you don't have to wait for the update to be rolled out in order to have your bootloader unlocked. The good folks over at XDA Developers have managed to find a way to unlock the bootloader on the Atrix 4G running Android 2.2 Froyo. Of course it's a bit more complicated that what the official version will be as you have to flash a special SBF and then run commands from the fastboot menu ...

    Yesterday we told you that the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Motorola Atrix 4G would probably coming soon, in July, and it would bring many new features together with the latest version of the Google Mobile platform. BriefMobile, who got initial hands on with the leaked ROM, now reports that the update will not only bring the above mentioned but it would allegedly also grant you an unlocked bootloader. Motorola promised unlocked bootloaders for Android smartphones in late 2011 for new devices and hopefully retroactively as much as possible for existing ones. The leaked Gingerbread ...

    Previously we compared the Optimus 2x with the Galaxy S 2 to determine which dual-core device is better on a variety of metrics. In this video we continue our series comparing dual-core Android phones, this time with the reigning champ, the Galaxy S 2, and the Motorola Atrix 4G. We compare specs, RAM after start-up, speed of launching apps, web browsing performance, and more. We also run a bevy of benchmarks to see which device performs better when really put to the test. As you can see in the spec comparison chart, the Galaxy S 2 looks better on paper with a faster-clocking CPU, less ...
