Basingstoke, UK – – Motorola Mobility, Inc. and Orange UK announced that the award-winning Motorola ATRIX is on sale from today in Orange stores nationwide and online.

Motorola ATRIX is the future of mobile computing and the only smartphone which allows you to carry the power of mobile computing in your pocket. The handset features a dual core processor for unprecedented computing capabilities; as well as Motorola’s webtop application which runs a full Mozilla Firefox 3.6 browser and supports Adobe® Flash® Player to open up all the rich graphics, animations and video on the web. Motorola ATRIX is capable of opening web pages twice as fast as most other smartphones, and it has been designed to become a user’s primary digital hub to create and edit media content on the go. It also features a biometric fingerprint reader for easy unlocking.

“ATRIX empowers people by giving them new ways to stay connected, informed and entertained at home, at work and anywhere in between,” said Andrew Morley, vice president of marketing, international markets, Motorola Mobility. “Motorola ATRIX is leading the way in a new era in mobile computing as it comes loaded with the Motorola webtop application, which enables consumers to enhance the capabilities of their smartphones and simultaneously reduce their need for additional mobile computing screens.”

“We are proud to be the UK launch partner for Motorola ATRIX, a ground-breaking product that delivers on our ongoing commitment to offer customers the latest multimedia devices,” said Phil Roberson, director of Devices, Everything Everywhere, the company that runs Orange UK. “Motorola ATRIX offers our customers a new and exciting way to stay in touch with the people who matter the most to them.”

Motorola has developed two companion accessory docks for Motorola ATRIX:

The Motorola HD Multimedia Dock, which has three USB ports and an HDMI port enabling connections to a keyboard, mouse, speakers and HDMI-compatible monitor for working at your desk, or connecting to an HDMI-compatible television and home theatre audio system for enjoying video, music, games and more
The Motorola Lapdock™, which has an incredibly thin design with an 11.6-inch screen, 36Wh three-cell battery that delivers up to eight hours of battery life, full keyboard, stereo speakers, and weighs just 1.1 kilograms. Users simply dock their Motorola ATRIX into the back for true mobility at work, at home and playing on the go in a form factor that’s lighter and smaller than most laptops on the market
