Atrix HD

The Atrix HD was one of my favorite phones last year. It was easy to hold and use, had a great screen, and handled everything I threw at it really well. It's now launching on the Nextel network in Mexico, with Jelly Bean and a new push to talk / direct connect service.

Motorola ATRIX HD combines cutting-edge smartradio technology with PRIP Nextel’s new radio service that offers instantaneous high-performance communication using a software based solution integrated with Nextel’s wireless network. Users can enjoy direct connect with anyone, anywhere across the globe by making direct communication calls via Nextel Evolution Network, Wi-Fi or roaming. In addition, the unique PRIP service keeps users connected through Nextel Evolution, the fastest voice and Internet network in the market. 

This new PRIP service is also fully backwards compatible with previous IDEN PTT services from Nextel and Sprint. We don't yet have a date or price, but Nextel Mexico has an expansive information page about PRIP and it's features right here. Hit the break for the full press release.

Powered by Android 4.1, Jelly Bean, Motorola ATRIX HD is the smartradio that anticipates your needs thanks to Google Now, an intuitive service that identifies exactly what you desire, and brings you closer to the information you need when you need it.

A fast processor and support for high-speed networks mean files load quickly and you can smoothly switch between apps. In addition you can interact with messages without leaving your favorite application.

More technology, less space
Remarkably thin without sacrificing strength, ATRIX HD takes innovation one step further. Its svelte 8.4mm frame is made strong with DuPont™ Kevlar® fiber, a scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass display and a high-tech, invisible nano-coating that acts as a splash guard and shields against unexpected splashes.

The 4.5-inch ColourBoost™ display supports a wide range of more vibrant colors. More pixels mean greater detail and crisper, clearer images that look true to life. To provide the power needed to fuel your demands, ATRIX HD is powered by a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor.

Additional features of the Motorola ATRIX HD include:

  • A front-facing camera for Google+ Hangouts and video chats
  • A rear-facing 8 megapixel camera to capture photosthat can automatically be uploaded to a private album on Google+™ Captures video in 1080p HD at 30 frames per second for smooth playback

Wait, is this a GSM/HPSA version?
What network DOES nextel mexico run besides iDen?

It still heavily relies on IDEN, but the 3G Network runs on GSM/HSPA+
