It’s only been a few weeks since Motorola officially took the wraps off the new Atrix HD LTE, but it seems that Google’s subsidiary has some big plans with the super-phone. In US, AT&T has for now been granted the “honor” to be the only supplier of the 4.5-incher, while in Canada the Atrix could come to two carriers.
We reported on the rumors that Bell could be the first carrier up north to get the phone just over a week ago, and now it seems that Virgin Mobile is ready to follow suite. The new rumor comes from the same source as the old one, Mobile Syrup, and, while not yet officially confirmed, it’s very trustworthy.
Again, a leaked internal screenshot makes the revealing, but this is even sketchier than the one picked up from Bell. Neither the phone’s release date, nor its pricing details are disclosed, so we’re knee deep in guessing territory.
One thing seems to be certain nevertheless, and that is Virgin will be getting the Atrix HD LTE later than Bell, which is supposed to start selling the new phone on August 2. As far as pricing goes, we can expect the new Atrix to go for $99 with a three-year carrier agreement, and for $599.99 outright.
As a quick reminder, Motorola’s Atrix HD LTE is set to sport a 4.5-inch LCD touchscreen with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution, feature a snappy dual-core 1.5 GHz S4 “Krait” processor, as well as 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of on-board storage, dual 8 MP/1.3 MP cameras, a 1,780 mAh embedded battery, Android 4.0 ICS with MotoBlur UI, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity.
Are there any Canadian tech lovers listening? Will you be looking for the new Atrix in stores once it'll be released? And if so, are you planning to go for Bell's or Virgin's model?
