AT&T slashes the price of the Motorola ATRIX 4G in half to $100 on-contract
0. phoneArena 07 Jun 2011, 10:29 posted on
Originally selling for $200 with a contract, it’s now going for the easier price of only $99.99! At that point, it’s undeniably hard to not resist its tempting gaze – even more when you know it’s packing a wonderful dual-core...

You would be hard pressed to find a smarter move by AT&T.

I agree. While I do not know anyone with the Atrix yet, undercutting some of these higher end Droids coming out on Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint is a good move. Especially with a device with a large promotion behind it already,

Here's the question - Atrix now, or Attain (Samsung Galaxy S II) someday maybe?

I have both Moto Atrix and SGSII, and I can say they both have their faults. The SGSII certainly isn't the best phone out there.
IMO this is a fantastic deal - especially if you're not one to play around with bootloaders and custom ROMs

Maybe I am the only one who is inferring this but I believe the reason they did this was because there will be another headset to be released soon to take over as a flagship device. I mean why else would you offer a dual-core device for $100 unless you had another dual-core device to replace it? People may argue that the Samsung Infuse is now the flagship device, but it will now be harder to sell that when the salesman can simply point to a device that is $100 cheaper and branded as being more powerful.

Solid question. Maybe the HTC Holiday or the Samsung Attain? Either way, if you are not into waiting or just have been hoping for a price drop on the Atrix, this is good news.

Well the LG Thrill is going to be released by the end of this month (the AT&T developer website says Q2 which ends in June). That would also make it a flagship device since it has a dual-core processor, 4.3 inch screen, and glasses-free 3D. The HTC Holiday I have heard is more slated for Q4 release because its name suggests towards the holiday season (although 4th of July is a holiday as well, lol).

Hell yeah this phone will be super easy to sell. Pretty stoked about the price change. I practically ignored this phone due to the price and the Inspire being 4G and $99.99

Hm, wow. Definitely a smart move because I was ready to pack up and leave AT&T for better deals eslewhere. I was deliberating just because I wasn't sure if I wanted to wait around for the SGS2 or Sensation, and my girlfriend on my family plan wants an Iphone, but Atrix for $100... I might just have to stick around and pick this up.

Best Buy and other retailers have had this phone for $100.00 several times since its release... AT&T Corporate Stores are not the only place to find a phone, and they are certainly not a place to find a bargain.
