Motorola's Atrix Android smartphone mentioned in Telstra blog post

Telstra has published a post on its exchange blog, noticed by Ausdroid, hinting that the telco may launch Motorola's Atrix Android smartphone in Australia.

Check out our guide to the best upcoming tablets in 2011 and the best upcoming smartphones in 2011.

Titled "Coming to a (small) screen near you: The year ahead in mobile tech", the blog by Telstra's Executive Director of mobile products Warwick Bray specifically mentions the Motorola Atrix, which can be teamed with an all-in-one keyboard and 11-inch screen accessory that transforms the phone into a full laptop. The Atrix laptop dock runs by tapping the phone's processor, memory and mobile Internet connection.

The Motorola Atrix was first announced at CES 2011 and is an Android smartphone equipped with a dual-core processor that runs Android 2.2, has a full HTML 5 browser, and supports HD video. Along with a 1GHz dual-core processor, the Atrix also has 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a "gHD" display, a fingerprint reader, and a 1930-mAh battery.

Along with the Atrix, Bray also expects smartphones running dual core processors, and bigger, brighter screens, and a new range of tablets with screens ranging from seven to 11 inches. "We saw some very impressive Next G compatible tablets running upcoming Google Android software. Watch this space."

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
