Motorola ATRIX 2: Bigger and Marginally BetterMotorola has officially revealed the ATRIX 2, which increases the Android phone’s screen to a huge 4.3″ display running at the qHD resolution of 960×540. But that’s about the only major change.

The processor is once again a dual-core 1GHz model, so no change there. The OS has at least been updated to Android 2.3, which will infuriate any ATRIX users who are still currently stuck on 2.2, while the camera has also been upgraded, taking it up from 5MP to 8MP. Video capture is now increased to 1080p at 30fps, too.

Sadly, Motorola has slimmed down the battery, with ATRIX 2 featuring a 1785mAh unit compared to the original’s large 1930mAh cell. But on the plus side, there’s no mention of Motorola’s MOTOBLUR user interface. Which is a good thing for the “pros” column. [Motorola]
