Just a week after being officially priced over at AT&T, Motorola’s newest flagship phone, the Atrix HD LTE, is ready to go outside the US borders. The 4.5-incher won’t go too far (for now) and will be landing to good ol’ Canada, where it’s expected to start selling as soon as August 2.
The information hasn’t been yet confirmed from official sources, but comes from Mobile Syrup’s more than trustworthy inside informants, who are usually spot-on with such news. Bell will be the Canadian carrier to start selling the Atrix HD in less than two weeks, according to the same sources, but unfortunately the pricing is yet unknown.
There is a rumor that the phone might [...]
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 [...]
We have already seen the third-generation Motorola Atrix smartphone quietly appear on the company’s website with AT&T branding on top of it well before the carrier unveiled it. But it’s no secret now that AT&T will offer interested Android fans a new 4G LTE Android handset, the Atrix HD.
The phone is no match to the Samsung Galaxy S3 when it comes to marketing efforts and buzz, but that doesn’t mean it should be overlooked by Android fans looking to buy a new smartphone. The handset does pack quite a kick under the hood and costs just $99.99 when purchased with a new two-year contract – which by the way, you can do today. Off [...]
Remember Webtop, the Linux-based environment that Motorola loaded on some of its devices? Launched at CES 2011, Webtop was one of the defining features of the Motorola Atrix. Customers could dock the Atrix into the LapDock, a laptop shell without the brains, and get a barebones laptop that supported a handful of desktop apps, such as Firefox.
In spite of tepid sales, Moto seems committed to Webtop – it integrated the environment in several other devices, including the Droid Razr, added new features, and tweaked the price, which went down from $500 to $350 and even less with special discounts. But, at least for the newly announced Atrix HD, it’s so long [...]
I don’t think this will surprise anyone at this point, giving Motorola’s recent history with locked bootloaders, but it’s still a big disappointment.
The bootloader of the new Motorola Atrix HD will be not only locked, but also signed with an encryption key, which makes it all but impossible for the ROM developers to go around it. Steve Kondik himself, the founder of CyanogenMod, has recently said that Motorola’s locked bootloaders are the worst, at least from the point of view of someone who wants to put a custom ROM on their phones.
Maybe the locked bootloader wouldn’t upset people as much as it does, if Motorola would ensure that [...]
Motorola has been missing in the Android device wars this year, which is surprising considering the company is now owned by Google. Motorola finally made its move a few days back with the official revelation of the Atrix HD, that has been flitting around the rumor mill as the Motorola Dinara. You can find the full specifications about the device, that will be available exclusively from AT&T, here.
Unfortunately, the previous report did not include any information on pricing and release date, but we have good news on that front! Motorola and AT&T finally revealed that the Atrix HD will be available for $99 with a 2-year contract, and [...]
While we’re waiting to see the first Google Motorola Android devices, which could come with Intel processors on board – considering that Motorola and Intel have announced at CES 2012 a multi-year multi-device partnership – we’ll remind you that the Android maker is going to launch other interesting devices on its own.
Such is the case of the Motorola Atrix HD, codenamed Motorola Dinara in previous leaks and rumors. Motorola has quietly introduced the device, although we still have no idea when AT&T is going to launch it and how much it will cost. This third Atrix model in Moto’s lineup is very similar to the company’s [...]
