At $100 with a two-year contract, the fresh from the factory Motorola Atrix HD has obviously been priced to move AT&T. But it looks that one retailer wants to move even more units of Motorola’s newest flagship by slashing its price just days after it was made available. Best Buy is now offering the Motorola Atrix HD for only $49.99 on its website.
There doesn’t seem to be any weird terms and conditions required to purchase the Motorola Atrix HD at the discounted price from Best Buy. Both the Titanium and White variants of the phone are available to choose from. The price is valid both for new customers and for upgrades.
The Motorola Atrix HD has been well received by critics, mainly because the phone does come with a respectable set of specs. For starters, it uses the same snappy Snapdragon S4 processor found on the U.S. variant of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the HTC One X – the two top Android phones in the market. The Atrix HD is also the first Motorola phone that comes with a 4.5-inch HD display. Combined with the durable Kevlar backing that’s a reminiscent of the RAZR series and the revamped and cleaner UI, one wonders why it’s not getting more love. Perhaps because it dropped support for the Webtop environment (which was first launched with the original Atrix?)
Better hit the link now before Best Buy changes its mind. Any takers for the Motorola Atrix HD out there?

Even though $100 is still a good price point, it’s a smart decision on Best Buy’s part to drop it to $50. The phone is still going to be a hard upgrade sell for existing Atrix users due to the fingerprint and webtop issue. Then with Moto deciding to lock down the bootloader, this will just make it harder to sell an upgrade or to a new Atrix user. Actually, with the specs of this phone and the features that were dropped from the original Atrix, this phone should not be in the Atrix line. It’s more like a Razor lite than an Atrix lite.
