AT&T has announced that the pre-sales for the upcoming Motorola Atrix on Feb 13. The powerful Android 2.2 handset will be priced at the usual $199.99, with a new two-year contract. If you want to get it from a retail store, you will have to wait until March 6. AT&T will market the Atrix as a 4G device, but doesn’t mention LTE anywhere in its press release. Instead, AT&T will be using HSPA+, a technology that we consider to be 3.5G at best (AT&T disagrees) when the Motorola Atrix launches. AT&T plans to launch LTE, a “real” 4G network, later this year – possibly with the next-generation iPhone as the spearhead.
For customers who want to take advantage of the unique extensions of the Motorola Atrix, like the Laptop Dock, can get a bundle with the phone (2-yr contract) and the laptop dock for $499.99 – after a $100 mail-in rebate. The Laptop Dock costs $499 (!) as a stand-alone purchase. The Multimedia Dock that turns your Atrix into a computer with a keyboard and mouse costs $189.99. Check our Motorola Atrix preview at CES 2011 and if you’re on a budget, you still have hope with the lower price at Costco (rumor).
