Holy. Mother. Of. Fudge. The Motorola Atrix, first revealed at the CES in Vegas almost four fudging months ago, will finally see its UK release today, courtesy of Orange.
At the time of writing, it still says “coming soon” on Orange’s website, but their official press release, issued yesterday, says “tomorrow”, which is now today. Make sense?
The Motorola Atrix will be free to Orange customers on a £35PM contract over 24 months. That gets you 600 minutes, 750MB of data, unlimited texts and 50 MMS messages per month.
The network is keenly promoting the biometric security feature. Ready for some embarrassing marketing talk? I know I am.
Orange’s Head of Device Portfolio, Nicola Shenton, says: "This really is the ultimate smart phone for gadget fans packed full of tech wizardry and features that any aspiring spy would be proud of. With its multimedia accessories and groundbreaking fingerprint swipe access, this is an innovative handset that Orange is proud to be bringing to the UK first."
Aspiring spies. That is just… *sigh*
The Motorola Atrix will be an Orange exclusive at first, but their Everything Everywhere partner, T-Mobile, gets in on the action next month. It has a 4in display, 5MP camera and dual-core 1GHz processor.
I want one.
