    Live Demo Unit

    I was at a Bell location yesterday at Walkers Line and Dundas in Burlington and they had a live demo unit of the Atrix and lapdock. The gentlemen there were quite kind and allowed me to play with it for as long as my heart desired.

    I'm not going to talk about either of the units because they are already talked about extensively on here and everywhere else. I will say that it might be a good idea to hit up your local Bell today before the Atrix comes out tomorrow, if you want to give it a test run. I assume stores will be busier than usual tomorrow.

    Oh ya, they knew nothing about pricing for the accessories. Well, they told me they didn't know anything.

    If you are interested in anything in particular, feel free to ask.

    It's snappy. I did my fair share of just swiping through screens, adjusting brightness, opening apps and it all seemed very snappy. The screen was very nice to look at and coming from my Milestone it's a huge upgrade. I'm actually enjoying motoblur, they've changed a lot of it.

    The phone felt very nice to hold. The rounded edges are a nice change from my Milestone. Perfect weight distribution. It still had the sticky plastic on the back so I couldnt get a solid feel of that plastic. I like where the power button is and the volume rockers feel solid.

    I played with the lapdock, it was decently quick. I tested youtube with a G20 Battle for Toronto video from YFC at 720p. Even without fullscreen it was choppy. I cut it back to 360, and fullscreened it and it was fine, completely watchable. At 330, it's hard to make a decision. I almost feel like 299.99 would have pulled me right in. But I'm still pondering whether or not it's worth it. The keys are pretty small lol. The touch pad is big and sensitive. It's light and thin but doesn't feel cheap although my girlfriend thought it looked kind of cheap. It's definitely ultra portable. Both of the guys at Bell said they were impressed with it's performance and battery life.

    Anyway, if there are specific you'd like elaborated, feel free to ask.

    Hey, if one of you in Canada do get a chance, could you post up some version numbers from the About Phone section of Settings? Just curious if you all are getting a new software version at launch...

    Android Ver (ours is 2.2.1)
    Baseband Ver (I would assume it'll be different, but ours is N_01.77.05P)
    Motorola Webtop Ver (ours is OSHWT_U1_4.257.14 unles you've flashed the leaked SBF)
    Kernel Ver (ours is 2.6.32.9)
    Build # (should be different, but ours is OLYFR_U4_1.2.6)

    Thanks!

    Soooo jealous.

    Still debating whether I should do that, but I'm being shipped off to South Carolina next week and really need to get my stuff organized beforehand.

    Not a bad idea about reserving one of these babies.
