Amazon's $149.99 pricing of the Motorola ATRIX 4G allegedly matched by Costco
Coming out of CES as perhaps the most talked about handset, Motorola has done its part to fuel the fire by posting some promotional videos showing the phone and the docks that are available for it. Besides the dual-core processor, the phone has 1GB of RAM and a 4 inch qHD display. The Motorola ATRIX 4G doesn't say "High-end model"-it screams it.
With two retailers allegedly selling the Motorola ATRIX 4G for $149, the big question now is what price will AT&T sell the device for? Usually, stores like Costco and Amazon sell handsets at a discount to the price at the carrier's own retail stores. In that case, a price of $199.99-the gold standard for flagship devices-would seem to be in order. As for a launch date, it would appear that any date between February 13th and March 1st could be possible.

If you are to believe the credible rumors the iPhone 5 will also have dual core and probably a much better gpu as well. Idk about ram though 1gb is insane for a phone. But count on another albeit smaller than 4" retina display and most likely a better camera. At the worst, you wait for iPhone 5 and still want the atria more, the atria will still be available. Have some restraint and you'll come out a bigger winner.

It is a real shame to see the Atrix on ATT when their highest data cap is 2gb, what a shame! This phone needs to be on other carriers, which at least offer us 5gb a month, and where Sprint is still unlimited!

The only gripe I have is with tethering, if you are going to charge extra for it allow more data. But when it comes to the phone hardly anyone goes over 2 GB.
