    Almost switched to Vz... Droid? Thunderbolt? Atrix...

    For the past few months, I've been counting the days until mid January 2011 when my AT&T contract would finally expire and I could jump ship - not just from my unwieldy Blackberry Bold - but also to Verizon's glorious selection of Android phones.

    And, of course, right before that CES happened rolling out a slew of awesome new phones that made me realize maybe I shouldn't be so quick to pull the trigger on the Droid X which I was eying up at the time. Namely, I wanted the Bionic - but it's Q2 release date was just too far away.

    Then I was all about the HTC Thunderbolt - a beefed up Evo 4G that would operate on Verizon's LTE network. But a series of events soured me - on both the TB and Verizon. First of all, Verizon, Best Buy and HTC are still jerking people around over the Thunderbolt release date because Vz's peeing their pants in excitement over the iPhone. Then I realized that an area of Western Maryland where I do a lot of business travel has absolutely no Verizon 3G coverage - and no plans to get it anytime soon. Without LTE, the Thunderbolt just didn't seem worth it.

    I initially dismissed the Atrix considering it a gimmick with it's docking feature and the pathetic history of AT&T Android devices (ironically, I had initially switched to AT&T because Vz phones were so hopelessly locked down with VCast). But the more I read up on the phone and the specs, despite the overpriced (and still seemingly a gimmick of a laptop dock), i'm realizing this is the perfect phone for me.

    As for the iPhone - my wife has one, and it's just not my cup of tea. I suppose it's the gadget geek in me that craves the Android.

    So that's my story, and in my research of the Atrix I stumble on an entire community of Atrix enthusiasts. Hi everyone!

    Welcome to the forum Effington! I cannot wait to get away from my iPhone and am counting down the days until the Atrix arrives.
    I would rather shoot for the moon and miss then aim for the gutter and make it...
