It's just 11mm thick and has a "qHD" 960 x 540, 24-bit colour screen, 2.4GHz/5GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi, and tri-band cellular connectivity.

Atrix's novelty is a netbook-like 11.6in screen, keyboard and battery accessory - it's called the Lapdock - all in a slimline metal covered case. The Atrix clips snuggly into a dock behind the screen and provides the unit's memory, storage and processing power.

Atrix runs a dedicated desktop-style UI, complete with the Firefox browser and the QuickOffice suite, when it's docked.
