Motorola ATRIX 4G $129.99 at Walmart until Thursday, $149 at Amazon
The 3rd party retailers have done their share of hand-wringing and clawed back up to full $80 from the already decent $199.99 AT&T is selling the most powerful phone to hit a US carrier for.

The dual-core Motorola ATRIX 4G can be had for just $129.99 at Walmart Wireless, if they can lock you into a two-year contract before Thursday, and $149.99 at Amazon Wireless. Of course, you have to purchase at least a $59.99 talk plan plus a $15 minimum data plan, or, if you want to use the dock, you have to shell out $45 a month for the Data Pro 4GB and tethering plan.

The 4G capable device will set you back $499.99 if you want the laptop dock, which is the price of the dock sold separately as well, so obviously AT&T and Motorola are trying to make it really hard to purchase just the dock.

The Motorola ATRIX 4G just got its root treatment yesterday, so you will be armed with all prerequisites of a great Android experience - high-resolution screen, powerful dual-core chipset, low price and... a laptop dock, if you are so inclined. Stay tuned for our review of the ATRIX 4G very soon.

Played with the atrix and compared to my inspire and didn't see a difference honestly. Maybe in the long term the difference will be noticed. You can't beat $129 though.

Correction: DataPro is 2GB, not 4GB, but everything else in that statement is correct

i spoke to an AT&T rep recently and its a 4GB data plan that includes tethering. i wondered about that too, but the reason that its 4GB and not 2Gb is because of the 4G labeling on the phone. u cant get this plan with any 3G smartphone

its 2gb for 25$. then if you add tethering for 20$ you get 2gb extra so the total is 4gb.

Walmart reps do not always know what they are talking about. The data pro with tethering deal is 4GB, 45.00, for any qualifying smartphone, which includes many of the Blackberry, iphone and android phones.

Yes, it is $119.99 on new activations as well as upgrades for existing customers. Plus all the free accessories, and if you are in CA, you pay far less sales tax too...
