    Impressive, but it's still a Motorola product, with the incumbent baggage.

    The fingerprint recognition is cool but its in the stupidest place conceivable. Who is going to want to place their finger on the top of their phone (in portrait mode) or on the left side of their phone? wouldnt bottom dead center be a better option or at least some place on the bottom where its not awkward?

    So where is the power button on your droid? Top and to the left/right? On the droid x its top and dead center.

    A locked, encrypted and booby-trapped bootloader.

    Stop crying about the bootloader, we all know Motorola encrypts it, so to constantly bring it up is ridiculous.

    Its to the right, and I see your point, but that's a button that can be hit with anything (side of the finger, tooth, you name it). This is only for fingerprints, so you think it would be logical to put it in an ergonomic position.

    If it can be done it can be undone thus eventually someone will crack the bootloader. That's my biggest concern about getting another phone. I love my D1 I just wish it had more internal storage space. Since a new Android phone is released every f***ing hour the ATRIX phone will be out of date by next week. Android was cool when it only had a few devices to worry about but now the OS has to support so many different hardware platforms and features that it's liable to become clunky and kludgey like Microsoft Windows. I've played with the iPhone and while I don't care for it overall one thing I noticed is the consistency and cohesiveness of the UI since it's designed solely for one piece of hardware. I've played with lots of Android phones and between UI lag, force closes, and hardware lockups it's just not quite as good as it should be. The software and hardware is evolving too fast to maintain any level of efficiency.

    Is Motorola really claiming that this is the first dual-core smartphone, or are they just saying it's their (Motorola's) first dual-core smartphone. I thought LG had the first dual-core. Heck, LG already has plans to release a quad-core. I just want a phone that works like it's supposed to without being all buggy and slow and without the battery being drained like a watered-down milkshake. :cus:

    +1 don't call it crying but valid concerns. However that hasn't stopped anything development wise the folks at xda a brilliant and have been able to resolve that for everyone so don't think its an issue.

    As for the finger print thing I figure it will be used for unlocking your device instead of a pass code so it would make sense to have it where the power button is vs having it in the way of a Button that will get used more often

    There may be a way to shut the fingerprint deal off. Or maybe someone will make an app that does.

    Don't Like it don't buy it.

    THIS. With this laptop dock, it really isn't going to say much for the security of the OS if this phone isn't locked down in every way possible.


    Perhaps the fingerprint reader won't be used to unlock the phone but rather as an enhanced security feature to ensure the safety of your files when you're docking it? Imagine what a disaster it would be if you were one of those individuals that pays their bills online, corporate email, etc and all someone has to do is get your phone and plug it into the back of a 200$(guess? who know really) dock and get all of your information.

    Yea, pretty annoying that it's on AT&T. Verizon would have done better to get this instead of the iPhone if they had to choose. UGHHHHHHH, why no Atrix on Verizon, why!!! If the Bionic comes out and I get that, I'll just feel that I'm getting the "worse one"..
