Motorola Atrix 4G Up for Pre-Order Feb. 13 for $199, $499 with Laptop Dock
The most versatile smart phone we’ve ever laid hands on will be available for pre-order February 13, and will hit AT&T stores starting March 6. To recap, this Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core superphone can power a laptop dock that has its own battery. A bundle that includes the laptop dock and phone will cost $499, but you’ll be able to buy each separately for $199 and $499, respectively.
To get the phone-laptop bundle, you’ll need to sign up for AT&T’s 2GB data plan, plus the $20 tethering plan, which seems a little overboard. We guess AT&T is assuming that if you’re going to spring for the laptop dock, you’ll be chewing up lots of bytes.
AT&T will also be selling a separate Entertainment Access Kit that includes an HD media dock (for attaching to a HD monitor), Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, and remote control. That will run you $189. We’re really psyched about the capabilities of this device, but it remains to be seen whether AT&T’s 4G HSPA+ network will be able to serve up enough speed to make the price of the phone and dock combo worthwhile.
