    Motorola's Atrix 4G coming to AT&T on March 6th for $200, bundled w/ Laptop Dock $500


    Don't ever say Ma Bell lacks cahones. On the same day that existing Verizon customers began pre-ordering the CDMA'd iPhone 4, AT&T has come clean with what's next on America's largest GSM network. While announced at CES 2011, pricing and release information had eluded the luscious Atrix 4G... until now, that is. AT&T will begin pre-sales for the Froyo-powered Motorola Atrix 4G Android superphone on February 13th, with the standard $199.99 + two-year contract getting one into your grubby mitts. We're told to expect general availability on March 6th "or earlier," putting it just about in line with the date we'd heard rumored. Moreover, those looking to buy will should have a difficult time laying off of the Laptop Dock bundle, which nets you an Atrix 4G as well as a $499.99 dock for the grand total of $499.99 on contract. You heard right -- those who opt to buy the dock at a later time will be asked to shell out five Benjamins, whereas that same tally on day one will also include the phone. It should be noted, however, that the bundle only applies if you also sign your name to a Data Pro plan and tethering add-on, so be sure you're down for that monthly hit before committing in haste. Oh, and just in case you simply can't stop spending, the carrier is also offering an Entertainment Access Kit for Atrix 4G customers which includes the Motorola HD Multimedia Dock, a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, and a remote control for $189.99.

    Man, I just read that as well elsewhere. Not the news I was hoping for. Release date and dock prices are not where they should be. Oh well, I'll still be grabbing the phone, but it looks like that will deter my immediate purchase of any docks directly through AT&T. Too bad.

    If this holds true, yes.

    As Slowhand noted in another post... it's official and on AT&T's site.

    See here: http://www.att.com/gen/press-room?pid=18996&cdvn=news&newsarticleid=31555&mapco de=wireless-networks-general|consumer

    Unfortunate.

    I considered that as well, but I have to think about the phone itself, because that's all you'll get with the Inspire anyway... no docking options, that we know of yet. The Atrix still wins out as a phone in my book. I'll just be a little disappointed while owning the phone and not using it to it's full potential. I might pick up a dock or two down the road from some place else, but not from AT&T. I may even get the laptop dock at some point if it comes WAY down and just use it on Wifi to avoid the tethering add-on. All in all, I'm very disappointed with AT&T, but I'm still getting the Atrix.
