And here it is, folks, the latest addition to the ATRIX family is coming soon to AT&T bearing a $99 on-contract price tag...

Verizon gets the good phones? You're joking, right? AT&T has a way better selection. Verizon gets mostly Moto phones. They didn't even get a version of the One X and their Galaxy S III is late.They have no Windows Phones at all. They also charge much more for their phones on contract.

Not to mention they are the most expensive carrier.

At least you can get an unlocked Nexus for AT&T for only $350.

Exactly, I paid 300 on contract for my Version GN when for 50 dollars more I could gotten an unlocked jellybean 4.1 Galaxy Nexus. Not having LTE is worth it considering I don't even get LTE in my area and HSPA+ does the job.

AT&T is definitely being competitive with their pricing. I wish they had the same 4G LTE coverage as Verizon because I would switch in a heartbeat.

The only thing that kind of kills it for me is the seeming lack of internal storage (like the Atrix 2, which can only store photos, music etc on the SD card). I hope they at least provide a decent SD card out of the box. The 2 gig card on the 2 is a joke.

Also, sadly, if the 2 gets discontinued, we won't really have a free Android smartphone left on AT&T. At least until the Skyrocket gets dropped down to that price or something.

Sd cards are cheap. I have seen 32gb sd cards for under $20. The other thing on sd cards is somewhere on the net there is a speed comparison of sd cards on different loads and depending on brand the class of the card does not mean it is better at read and write speeds. Besides they are all fast enough for media the only difference I see maybe is transferring stuff from card to computer and back being different.

Why isn't a bigger deal being made about this phone? From what it looks like, this is A) Moto's first phone with a screen larger than 4.3", B) their first phone to ship with ICS and no physical buttons, C) their first 720p phone, and D) is only $99. Of course for that price, I have a sneaking suspicion that the nameless "dual-core processor" is probably just last year's OMAP, but even so, this is a major step in the right direction for Motorola.

no, it's definitely an S4. the 4430 dosen't actually support 1.5GHz, in fact 1.2 was an overclock on Moto's part and it seems unlikely that they'd start using 4460-70 when the S4 is out.

It could very well be an S3. I'm actually quite sure, the Xperia Ion has identical pricing on AT&T and it has a dual core 1.5ghz S3.

55. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5711; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)


the Xperia Ion is an older phone and Qualcomm isn't going to go back to using S3s unless they absolutely have to.

Not much older. And yes it was an s4 after all. Nice value there.

I recall having a big arguement with a certain fellow about why this phone should be priced low.

Seems like Motorola and AT&T agreed with me.

This phone is a steal for 99$.

it's just icing on top that it's so cheap. AT&T Users have been yearning for a Razr variant and here it is, better than ever in black and white. Verizon's Razr was popular @ $200-$300 imagine how much this will sell.

It's not really an icing untop of anything because this phone really isn't much of a cake. It's definitely a solid device, but now I hope you understand the fundamentals of why devices are priced the way they are. I do think that 99$ is undershooting this device because you do get a good amount, but at 200$ it would be a failure, 150$ seems reasonable, But AT&T knows the ins and outs of this, exemplified by this 99$ price tag.

I predict this will be a hot sell.

It has an HD display, it has LTE, it has the latest generation CPU. There's absolutely nothing, with the exception of storage and I guess battery size on some more recent examples, that separates this device from other top of the line models.
What exactly do you think this phone is missing?

Me and Kurogii have debated this topic extensively, I do not wish to re-iterate what we spent days arguing, I can link you the whole thing if you want.

funny how he agrees with me by using his own line of logic. ;)

I don't know where I agreed with you, but OK, people will persist, even when what they are defending don't agree with their argument, in theory.

Lmao this is becoming laughable..
