Quad-core Motorola Atrix 3 leaked? The Tian Jin Daily has reported on the leaked specs of the Motorola Atrix 3, which will have the largest battery seen on a consumer smartphone, to date.
If accurate, the device will have a 4.3-inch 720p display, run on a quad-core Tegra 3 processor, have 2GB RAM and the huge 3300mAh battery. The phone will also have a 4G LTE radio and all other standard features.

Notably, the phone will have a dual-LED flash 10MP camera, making it one of the more powerful and feature-rich phones to hit U.S. shores.

It is unclear whether the phone will launch with Android 4.0, but it is expected to.

Yeah, but who knows how long it will last with a quad core. It still is made on a 40nm process. I rather wait for the 28nm Snapdragons S4's. It will offer much better battery life, and possibly better performance (even for being a dual core). Don't get me wrong, the quad-core Tegra 3 is very nice, but what happens to battery life when you demand more power and the companion core is turned off? Smartphones already have sh*tty battery life.

And has a price tag that rivals financing a round trip ticket to the moon.

Frankly research & development needs to quit pissing & moaning about making bigger batteries and make a battery that actually lasts longer. They can do it, they just won't.

Don't believe me? Here's a hint; There has to be at least one other old timer out there that remembers an old TV show from the ABC line up back around 1977/78 by the name of "That's Incredible" with John Davidson, Fran Tarkenton & Cathy Lee Crosby (1st TV Wonder Woman) [and no, I don't care what Wikipedia says, my date is more accurate] in which one of the segments they aired was a bunch of PhD scientists working on a car that was supposed to get 100 miles to a gallon of gas.

Obviously this got a bunch of attention due to the timing of the gas crisis & the staggering waiting lines at the gas pumps.

Given the perameters of the show, they proved that they could indeed make a car that could run 100 miles on a gallon of gas. No, the car wasn't a 4 ton Cadillac with every option available at the time with the air conditioning running full blast either, but you get the idea.

30+ years later; where the hell are those cars, what's up with the battery technology, I call "bullshit" on solar & wind tech 'not' being a viable option and cell phone batteries not being able to last more than 8 hours of normal talking operation.

Oh... & yeah, I guess I would like to have one of these phones too... but only if it's around the $200 mark when I sign a new contract.
