The Motorola Atrix 2 is the successor of the Motorola Atrix which came out just a few months ago (in February). Given the short amount of time between the 2 releases the new Atrix 2 doesn’t seem such a big leap forward when compared with the original Motorola Atrix. Its screen is slightly bigger, the CPU is still dual-core but from Texas Instruments this time and the camera is a bit better: 8MP instead of 5MP and it can finally record in 1080p. In short the Atrix 2 is a good device and it can be rooted very easily in one single-click as you’ll see below.
