    Atrix. Dual core, 1 gb ram, more or less laptop dock. Sure, nexus s gets all the updates, but hardware wise, pretty bad

    I just handled an atrix and Im completely blown away with how sexy and small it is. I wasnt expecting that cause it looks huge in video. I didnt get a chance to play with software cause of the stupid motoblur wouldnt let me. Had to create an account first. What is this? iTunes?

    Not sold on dual cores yet. First generation dual cores aren't going to have the battery life they claim. My Nexus S has no problem loading apps, playing games, listening to music, and getting great battery life. When dual core matures, I'll jump on board, but not right now.

    I wish the Nexus had a 4.3 inch screen. And I wish the Atrix didn't have a locked bootloader (I know, I know... nobody knows for a fact yet that it does... but it will).

    So I can't really help you. Sorry :(

    Nexus S, because Moto is being a prick and locking the bootloader.

    that about sums it up. I'd just wait for other dual core phones to come along without motoblur and locked bootloader. How far along can they be? At any rate since 4G coverage will not likely be in my area for YEARS I'd get the Nexxus S (if it were here I'd skip this phone too for that reason). Not that I think its better than the Atrix but I refuse to own a phone I cant root.

    I'd bet money that Google makes a Nexus phone at the end of this year that's dual core.
