Bell Canada to get Motorola Atrix 4G with dual-core processor

If you love your smartphones big and powerful, then the Motorola Atrix 4G is right up your alley.

During AT&T's Developer Summit at CES 2011, Motorola and AT&T introduced the Motorola Atrix 4G with a dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. In addition, it will have 16GB of onboard memory and a 1,920mAh lithium-ion battery. Specs that certainly back up its claim as "the world's most powerful smartphone."

Bell in Canada and Orange in UK in addition to AT&T will get the phone.

Mozilla Schedules Firefox 4 Beta 9 For January 13

With the finish line in sight, Mozilla is accelerating the beta release schedule of Firefox.

According to the most recent meeting minutes of the product planning team, Firefox 4 Beta 9 is now scheduled for a January 13 release, which is at least one week earlier than we initially expected. However, it is 4 weeks behind the revised release schedule of the browser, which planned a December 16 release date for Beta 9.

The company said there were 53 blocking bugs for this beta on January 4. The current bug chart indicates there are only 5 blocking bugs left, while a total of 247 blocking beta bugs are still listed.

Microsoft is expected to release IE9 RC on January 28.
