AT&T to launch Motorola ATRIX 4G on March 1st?
Leaked photographs of an internal AT&T computer screen may give us a clue to one of the most asked questions since the CES ended, "When will AT&T launch the Motorola ATRIX 4G?" Based on the information listed on the screen, the highly anticipated phone will be released by AT&T on March 1st. Possibly the most talked about launch for the carrier since the original Apple iPhone was made available in 2007, the dual-core powered handset made quite an impression on everyone at the CES (after all, it did win Best in Show for the smartphone category) and those who read about the high-end specs and caught a glimpse of the handset by way of YouTube were likewise mesmerized.

The leaked information, which also revealed a SKU of 65230 for the phone, was part of a long informational sheet on the Motorola ATRIX 4G which included the phone's specs. And how sexy they are! The only "complaint" is the inclusion of Froyo out of the box when Gingerbread would have been sweeter (imagine that we are now at the point when having Froyo out of the box would be considered a negative!) and the 5MP camera on the back when Verizon's DROID Bionic finds itself lugging an 8MP shooter on the rear.

Anyway, March 1st is not that far away, although for those who have already decided that this will be their next cell phone, it might seem like forever until it's here. For AT&T reps mourning the loss of Apple iPhone exclusivity, the buzz surrounding the Motorola ATRIX 4G should put a huge smile on their face, especially with the amount of pre-launch buzz that the ATRIX 4G is generating.

Maybe I missed something... what is the 4G referenced in the name of this phone? Are we talking about HSPA+? Cuz this phone will be old news by the time ATT gets there LTE on. I kind of feel like this phone would be like taking a Bugatti on your local expressway, sure it's fast, but isn't driving there a waste of it's power?

Yea but a bugatti on your local surface streets really sucks, mostly going slow all the time except when you get to take off at the light and go 0-60. I would rather have the HSPA+ fully rolled out then work with an LTE network that most people cant even get yet. The ones that do have spotty coverage at best....ill give you this though at least the bionic works on LTE...ATT and Motorola should have made it an LTE ready device.

First off it is an LTE ready device for those who don't know how to look up specs and finally vzw lte is going to be spotty at best being backed by evdo which is a lot slower than hspa+. Vz sells me on voice but that to me is in decline with all of the things I use for data and messaging
