Motorola is a technograt company. They do not know the business. Therefore not matter how good the product is , they are not going to succeeed. samsung launhed galaxy S within one month tey launch world wide. Now they sold over 10 million Galaxy S
No way that Motorola can do that
F01, 04 Feb 2011I'm really interested in this phone but this sums up my main concern with choosing a Motorola:... moreThey taunted everybody with it and it took them a year later to say sorry so upgrade for you!
For example since they have a bad track record in meeting deadlines what if they were do it with the atrix or some other phone?
MAXXTEK, 06 Feb 2011I suspect you are all missing the most important point for so many people around the world! Y... moreActually it will be available in the USA, Canada, and the UK. They have already mentioned this in many articles and news releases. So if you are in Australia, then yes you will have a tough time purchasing. Otherwise people like myself who are already with Bell in Canada will have easy access to the phone, ATT in the US and whoever is carrying it in the UK. Point was not missed as I have been eagerly awaiting the release for quite sometime now.
people, does anyone know when they go to the European market through the phone?

Regardless it is still the b... moreSorry but this is Motorola that we're talking about. You know, the guys with the encrypted boot loaders.
As far as I know, with Motorola Android phones, while rooting is possible you still cannot install builds of Android with a kernel that Motorola have not produced for your phone (or for a version of your phone).
For example installing a version of the Android kernel on a European Motorola phone that is based on a South American release for the same Motorola phone is possible however installing a generic version of the Android kernel is not.
In other words while you can get custom ROMS for a Motorola Milestone based on Android 2.1 you cannot get Android 2.2 until Motorola make it available somewhere in the world.
This is despite all the efforts of all the different devs in the Android community. This means that once you go Moto you are totally dependent on them bringing out a new version of the software somewhere before you can get a kernel upgrade for your phone. I'm not sure if you can only use GSM Motorola kernel builds for GSM phones or if you can use the CDMA and GSM kernels interchangeably.
This is why the issue of Motorola producing updates themselves is such an important one (unless they make good on their recent statement that they will enable the community when it comes to ROM chefs) but as Engadget said we know now that their word is a good as dirt.
F01, 04 Feb 2011True, but their track record on Android upgrades is really poor:

You WILL NOT be able to buy one now, when it is released in the USA and more than likely NOT untill it is at least a year and a half old.
I currently spend a lot of time in Europe and Australia and you will not buy a Motorola untill it is two years old if ever.
Motorola have just released Milestone 1 in Australia God bless their little hearts and it doesn't even have the frequency loaded for the most popular network hmmm?
Somebody mentioned Motorolas marketing department being not very good, What marketing department, What administration?
This Phone, the Atrix is the absolute! It is the totalitarian dictator of mobile devices, and that is before you plug it into its associate devices! It has no peer and no competitor, it stands alone as the greatest mobile device of this year 2011. It will have no competitor in the same league! The Atrix is the melding of just about every wish list on this globe Planet Earth.
But just try to buy one while it is new and exciting outside USA. In Australia I don't think I will wait till 2013 so I guess it will be another junky HTC with the sound quality and loudness of a mouse fart!
Only Motorola and Some Sony Ericsson phones actually have audio quality and reception. If you don't care about audio then why buy a phone at all, buy a notebook instead as it will do more. if you think your audio is good, find a Motorola and compare, you will be shocked. However that is if you can find a current Motorola Of course.
Cmon Moto, Get your act together or give me the job of marketing your product, I am obviously more passionate about your product than you are!
is it realy record full HD? or it is just for advert propagation؟ advertisement؟
sorry for my bad english
Another reason why people should avoid moto, they don't fulfill their promises regarding updates!
Mobilemaster, 04 Feb 2011I heard too about that news. Look, if they will not make updates on the Cliq, that is NOT mean... moreTrue, but their track record on Android upgrades is really poor:
Unfortunately they also have a tendency to go back on their word. I've seen this first with the Milestone XT720 and now with the CLIQ XT.
I think that they have enough issues upgrading their MotoBlur software to new versions and now with the Atrix they will also have to intergrate with the Linux installation that runs when docked.
I'm no longer hopeful for much support with regard to Android upgrades when it comes to this device.

I'm really interested in this phone but this sums up my main concern with choosing a Motorola:
Moto has already stated it will launch with 720p playback, but it will be capable of 1080p via a software update AFTER launch.
motorolla specifies that maximum playback resolution is 720p, not 1080. does anyone know anything about this?

The specs is just a killer!!! Crazy. I hope it runs well and doesnt have much problem. I think this one is the most powerfull phone. Even if you compare with xperia arc or galaxy 4g. It has dualcore and 1gb ram! Even my iphone 4 only have 512mb ram. Crazy!

The Samsung Galaxy S2, the Nokia N9, and some stunning HTC devices will be announced on MWC. Motorola could announce too something for Europe, maybe the Milestone X(the European version of Droid X). SE will announce the Xperia Play, LG... I don't know. :D
