The Motorola ATRIX has finally had a price and date announced. As one of the most talked about mobile devices at CES last month, we were left wondering how much it would end up setting folks back, but more importantly we wanted to know when we could buy it.
AT&T announced this morning that pre-orders would begin on Feb. 13th, and should be in-store and other retail channels on March 6th. The phone will sell for $199.99 with a two-year contract, but the most interesting portion of the new device is its docks, and that’s where it could get a tad pricey:
AT&T will offer two special packages for customers who choose to purchase ATRIX 4G in addition to these unique accessories. The first combines ATRIX 4G and the Motorola Laptop Dock for a promotional price of $499.99 after a two-year service contract and $100 mail-in-rebate after subscription to Data Pro smartphone data plan and tethering add on. Customers who choose to purchase the Motorola Laptop Dock separately pay $499.99. AT&T is also offering an Entertainment Access Kit for ATRIX customers which includes the Motorola HD Multimedia Dock, a Bluetooth® keyboard and mouse, and a remote control for $189.99.
It sounds like if you want to get the laptop dock then you definitely want to do it when you first pick up the phone as it essentially gets thrown in for free. Of course that also means a lot more monthly fees, but if you’re going with this phone and its docks, it’s not a bad idea to just do it out of the gate anyway.
What say you? Will you be picking up an ATRIX?
