The Motorola Atrix 2 is now available in stores from Telecom New Zealand, Motorola announced in early March.
The device is available for $799.
Motorola has teamed up with EA Games to release 10 different games free on the Atrix 2, including Need for Speed games, Dead Space, EA Sports FIFA 10, The Sims 3, Tetris, Worms and Bejeweled 2.
Motorola's ANZ managing director, Timo Brouwer, said the phone was a "stellar gaming experience".
"Whether it’s achieving high scores, watching movies, web surfing or sharing pictures, the phone offers a swiss-army-knife of features and capabilities ready to challenge you and banish boredom for good," he said.
Those games will run on Android 2.3, and be powered by the device's 1GHz dual-core processor and 1GB RAM. It has 4GB on-board storage and can take up to 32GB microSD.
The Atrix 2 has a 4.3-inch, 960 x 540 pixel display. It has an HDMI output and an HDMI cable supplied in the box for HDTV connectivity.
The rear-facing camera has an 8MP lens and can record video in 1080p HD. The device also has a VGA front-facing camera for Skyping.
The Atrix 2 also has a 'Webtop' application that allowed you to launch Firefox on your TV by docking the phone in Motorola's HD dock.
