Motorola Atrix 4G Android 2.3 update arrives

Motorola gave Atrix 4G owners a treat at the end of the week by posting its Android 2.3 update. The update brings both the performance, polish, and interface updates of 2.3 itself as well as updates to Motorola's custom tweaks, including ones that haven't shown on other Motorola Android 2.3 revisions. Among the surprises is an upgrade to 1080p movie playback that helps it compete even with newer phones.

MotoBlur has been given both core and secondary updates. The UI layer now has an iPhone-style app dock, notifications can be cleared one at a time, and the app tray is now sortable. Media gets a lift through a gallery app that now aggregates more online and offline sources, and the music player is now linked to a music discovery service. Speedier Webtop browsing, location-based social recommendations, and tougher security like SD card encryption and remote wipes are all part of the refresh.

The download is available both as a manual download for a USB transfer as well as over the air for those who check for updates from the phone itself.
