The Motorola Atrix, an Android smartphone which was the talk of this year’s Consumer Electronics Show will be available in Canada, exclusively through Bell Mobility starting March 17.

The Android 2.2 powered device, which will sell for $600, features a Tegra 2 dual core processor, 4 inch 960 x 540 resolution display, 1GB of RAM, microSD slot capable of providing an additional 32GB of storage, HDMI port, Front- and rear-facing cameras and mobile hotspot capabilities.

In a sea of Android devices, the Atrix is notable for the Laptop and Multimedia docks which can be purchased along with it.

The Motorola Lapdock is designed for portable use. It comes with an 11.6-inch that provides 1366×768 resolution, full keyboard, stereo speakers, 36Wh three-cell battery that delivers up to eight hours of battery life. Atrix owners can dock the device into the back of the Lapdock and carry out some basic computing tasks.



The Multimedia Dock is designed for home use. It has three USB ports and an HDMI port, enabling connections to a keyboard, monitor, mouse, speakers or HDMI monitor.



Reviews of the Atrix from the United States, where the device goes on sale this weekend, have been very positive thanks to its sleek design, sharp qHD display and powerful dual-core processors, however, most reviewers found the docks to be over-priced and underwhelming.

The Motorola ATRIX will be available exclusively from Bell Mobility starting March 17 for $169.95 on a three year term with a minimum $50 voice/data plan or for $599.95 with no term.
