After last week’s rumor regarding the Motorola Atrix 4G release date has been shot down by Motorola, now AT&T has released some much anticipated official info regarding both the Motorola Atrix 4G release date and the phone’s price.
According to AT&T, the Motorola Atrix 4G release date is March 6th “or earlier“. It’s interesting that AT&T hasn’t been able to give us a firm launch date. Probably March 6th is the bad case scenario, in case Motorola and AT&T will encounter last minute bugs or issues with the phone. That being said, the rumor that was placing the Motorola Atrix 4G release date on March 1st might indeed come true.
Other useful info provided by AT&T is the fact that the Motorola Atrix 4G preorder / presales campaign will start on February 13th, with the phone’s price being priced at $199 after rebate and with a 2 year contract with the carrier. You’ll also have to opt for a data pack that will cost you at least $15/month.
Remember the awesome Motorola Atrix 4G accessories that were shown at CES 2011 ? Well, it looks like the laptop dock will cost $499 by itself ( so much with the competitive pricing that Motorola was bragging about a few weeks ago ). However, you can purchase both the Motorola Atrix 4G and the Laptop dock for $499 ( “after a two-year service contract and $100 mail-in-rebate after subscription to Data Pro smartphone data plan and tethering add on” ).
AT&T will also offer the HD Multimedia Dock, a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, and a remote control for $189.99.
It might seem like a lot of money to shell out for a phone but, let me tell you: if you can afford it…the Motorola Atrix 4G and its accessories are definitely worth your money. And don’t forget: these are the official AT&T prices. Best Buy, RadioShack and the other independent retailers will definitely try to step their game up and come with interesting offers.
As we already informed you, this smartphone will also arrive in Canada, at Bell. The rumored Canadian Motorola Atrix 4G release date is March 17th.
