Additional Motorola Atrix 4G Details Trickle In [VIDEO]

AT&T‘s first legitimate Android contender, the Motorola Atrix 4G, is set to launch in the near future.  As to when specifically, we don’t know yet.  What we do know, however, is that the first dual-core smart phone to hit the United States is only looking to fetch about $150 when it drops.  Two outlets (COSTCO, Amazon) recently listed the phone as indicating that this will be the two-year contract price. That’s at least $50 lower than we expected!

As some of you may already know, the Atrix 4G comes with a 5-megapixel camera, capable of recording 720p video and playing it back.  According to a Motorola fact sheet, a  future software update will include camera features, making 1080p possible.  Perfect feature addition if you ask us as it goes well with the qHD display or an HDMI monitor.

Motorola released a YouTube video earlier today, touting all the cool features and key components of the phone.  Take a couple of minutes and check it out!

Anyone looking to snatch up an Atrix 4G when it arrives?

    I’m looking to snatch up one of these the moment it’s been verified that the bootloader can be unlocked.

      It will come with the same encrypted bootloader with possibly a few more tweaks to not even allow one to inject their process into the post boot routines…Thus no Droid Atrix Bootstrap rooting could be possible such as was the case with the DroidX…

      bummed about this.

      Motorola, in my opinion, should simply focus their R&D efforts on the great bells & whistles they are currently developing instead of spending so much time trying to lock a few out of the rooting process. Besides, it only makes their device more “popular” if it can be easily rooted…

    I’ve read some rumors that the Atrix may go multi-carrier. If T-Mobile gets it, I’ll buy one in a heartbeat. And it’ll be my last heartbeat when my wife finds out ; )

  • I hope it’s worth all the hype because I will be one of the first to try this when it is already out in the market. It wouldn’t be recognized as the best smartphone at CES for nothing.

    It is all well and good but it will co,e with Froyo and not Gingerbread. They conviniently will release an upgrade later: This way they dont have to provide the hardware additionals like NFC support. They will just release Atrix 2 later with those hardwares. Its a bummer since the phone itself is powerful enough to handle the additionals.
