Dropping in at the higher end of the price range spectrum, the Atrix will hit the Everything Everywhere partner in the same month as its main rivals the Samsung Galaxy S II and HTC Sensation touchdown, with a £35 per month contract giving wannabe users 600 monthly minutes, 750MB of data and unlimited text messages.

Tipped by Motorola as the “world’s most powerful smartphone,” the Atrix will hit Orange with a 1GHz Tegra 2 processor, both the Galaxy S II and HTC Sensation will land with 1.2GHz dual-core powerhouses.

Joining the Atrix’s CPU, the new flagship Motorola handset will boast 1GB of RAM, a 4-inch 960 x 540p qHD display, front and rear facing cameras and Google’s Android 2.2, FroYo, operating system. Further bolstering the Atrix’s credentials and acting as the device’s party piece, the upcoming device will be available with accompanying Lapdock and HD docks.

The Lapdock, which transforms the Atrix handset into a fully fledged laptop computer thanks to a rather nifty WebTop OS, caught the eye of many when the handset was officially unveiled earlier in the year at the Consumer Electronics Show but has been handed a hefty £300 price tag by the orange-hued network.

Will the Atrix mark a new era in mobile computing or will the more powerful Galaxy S II and HTC Sensation devices still its thunder? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
