Atrix 2Earlier this morning AT&T announced five new Android devices coming to their network, but no release dates were mentioned for any of them. Well, not a company to waste time, we now know that the Motorola Atrix 2 will be hitting AT&T corporate stores and online on October 16 for $99.99.

The original Atrix launched just this past February, but here we are a mere eight months later with its successor.  The original met with mixed reviews, and while we’re not surprised to see a second iteration even in spite of that, we are just a bit shocked by how soon it’s arriving.
