The inevitable rush of dual-core handsets has truly begun, with shop shelves gradually filling with powerful Android phones boasting juicy spec sheets. 

The Motorola Atrix was first on the dual-core scene and remains one of the absolute best Android handsets you can pick up today. Whilst not quite on par with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S II, the Atrix's unusual take on a mobile phone is certainly tempting. A choice of docks can be used in conjunction with the phone allowing it to be rigged up to a display at home or even turned into a quasi-laptop. 

T-Mobile have adopted the Atrix into the fleet, putting it out on their network on June 1st. £35.75 a month for 24 months will get you the handset for free. This also includes 900 minutes, 500Mb of data and 500 texts.

Those willing to sign up for a £40.85 per month option will find they also get the "work and play kit" thrown in for free. This includes the HD multimedia dock, keyboard, mouse and remote control all featured in our review.

If you want to go all out on Atrix accessories then you can pick the laptop dock up separately for £299.

Which dual-core handset have you gone for? or is one core enough for you?....
