Motorola has faced an overall average reception in India in recent times, especially as far as their smartphones are concerned. Only the ultra slim Motorola RAZR has made a huge impact in our country. So, what does a brand do to get a leg up over the competition, launch a great handset at a lower price point. Back in October, Motorola officially took the wraps off the Atrix 2 and now, five months later this handset has made its way to our shores at a very competitive price.
Finally launched in India
The Motorola Atrix 2 aka the Motorola 4G Atrix 2 is available for purchase through online retail sites, Saholic and Letsbuy for a price of Rs. 22,990. For those of you who have no idea what this handset is about, here is a look at its highlighted specifications:

The Motorola Atrix 2 has been in the news from quite some time, and was mainly being referred to with different names that were associated with it. These names included Motorola Atrix Refresh, Motorola Fuath and Motorola Edison. With the handset making a quiet appearance in the Indian market, it is expected to take on other smartphones that feature similar prices, such as the Galaxy R as well as the LG Optimus 2X.
With the RAZR being Motorola’s current flagship handset, much of their attention has been focused on this handset's sales and in the process other handsets are taking a backseat. This can be seen with the quiet release of the Atrix 2, a handset that could potentially fare quite well in the Indian market, taking its pricing into consideration.
