When we last checked out the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Atrix 4G, we slated it for a late June to July over-the-air release date. Now, it seems that AT&T and Motorola are closing in on a final Gingerbread build for the Atrix that will be available via update some time in July. The July update will be the third over-the-air modification from Motorola and AT&T since the February release of this dual-core superphone.
The update will bring Android 2.3.3 to users on AT&T with a new and improved Motorola Blur skin. Sideloading will be enabled as per AT&T’s new ruling on the issue. Of course, Motorola’s packed some major features into this update including, but not limited to: overscroll glow, application grouping, re-built main applications, downloads management, an improved camera, better power management, a re-done keyboard, and some nifty new animations. The device’s new version of Blur looks a lot like the Droid X’s recently obtained update.
We recently checked out a newer Gingerbread build on the Atrix 4G numbered Build 4.5.47. The smoothness and relative buglessness suggest that a final build is not far from reach. Still, we’re looking at 2.3.3 for the July launch without the added Google Talk video chat capabilities from Android 2.3.4. We imagine Motorola will bring those to the Atrix with a future update in August (or perhaps September).
