Motorola ATRIX 4G is now only $29.99 on-contract for new customers at Best Buy

Motorola ATRIX 4G is now only $29.99 on-contract for new customers at Best Buy
Sure it isn’t the only dual-core packing smartphone on the market right now, but the Motorola ATRIX 4G is still considered one of the current titans in the Android world – especially thanks to innovative qualities.

Naturally, $199.99 is the standard price you’d expect to find most top shelf devices sporting, but taking into account that it’s been out for a little bit now, it’s only fitting to find some kind of price drop associated with it. And of course, it appears that Best Buy is here to the rescue as they’ve  seemingly reduced its price tremendously to only $29.99 for new customers. Unfortunately, existing customers with eligible upgrades will need to shell out more at $99.99 with a 2-year agreement, but it’s still nonetheless tolerable either way.

In the face of another recently launched dual-core handset, the T-Mobile G2x, the $30 on-contract price that new customers are required to pay for the smartphone with AT&T's service isn’t bad at all - so don't let this one pass you by!

Apparently the atrix was only 29.99 for Easter day.

I just checked the best buy website and the price still shows $99 for new customers, is there something I'm doing wrong?

Motorola what the f*ck is going on with you these days. The xoom pricing disaster, boot loader madness, abysmal sales. I completely understand why the Atrix was given to At&t. It was because the exclusivity of the Iphone was up and Verizon got the IP4. So motorola wanted At&t customers to have a high end alternative to the Iphone. But what you don't do is leave the carrier who saved your ass from drowning in the cold to shiver. We still haven't seen a X2, Bionic, D3, or info on the targa. Need I remind you what the OG Droid did for motorola. I think we all know that it paved the way for the future droid's success (X,Incredible, D2). It single-handedly brought moto back in the game. I think somewhere down the line moto lost focus. This isn't a rant, I'm just irritated by the decisions their making. Hey moto, how's about cutting the price on that Xoom down some more so i can actually debate getting one eh?

"XOOM pricing disaster" This right here displays total ignorance.

sales say otherwise. Pricing of other android tabs, or any tabs for that matter, say otherwise.

This proves how a carrier can kill even the most awesome technology. AT&T killed this phone. If Sprint or Verizon got this I don't think this phone would have failed like this. It very sad to see a phone this awesome going for this price. Motorola lost so much money on this handset! The Evo 4G has been out almost a full year & it's nowhere to the Atrix's price point. The Atrix kills the Evo 4G in every spec there is. This is so crazy!

True, all carriers have their issues with marketing a phone though. Sprint did a poor job of marketing the Pre, it did sell decently enough but could have done a lot better, it certainly did on Verizon. Verizon killed the Kin line by marketing them as smartphones even though they arent, Sprint lucked out doing the same with the instinct, but the marketplace was arguably very different then as nobody had a phone close to an Iphone at the time, and carriers would market anything with a touch sceren as an Iphone killer and consumers would bite, then we got Android and copycat touchscreen OSes were left in the dust.

Granted, some of the pricing might have been Motors fault for the laptop dock and such, but for crying out loud, we ARE talking about an innovative technology which has not been seen before.

They need to put the new MOTOBLUR on the ATRIX at least.

the atrix WILL be a top notch device with a few updates. Sales happen all the time, at&t dont care about the 100 or so dollars of the upfront price, they just want to lock your business in for 2 years. This isnt a bad sign, just a sale.

AT&T and motorola are to blame for the lackluster sales on this device. AT&T whom I have, only market the iPhone, which is fine but other phones are worthy of proper promotion. Also the whole hsupa debacle, motoblur, and the insane accessory prices drove everyone to the awesome priced inspire. Memo to AT&T, you dropped the ball on this 1, don't let the infuse follow in it's footsteps. Oh yeah, launch hspa+ w/backhaul to more cities ASAP because as of right now, you are dead last in the new 4G standard.

I agree. Why would the hell did the Atrix arrive at AT&T, who not only didn't enable the high speed data on the device, but also limit's the amount of data that can be used on the device? As for the price of the dock - I bought a laptop!

So very sad that a phone like this is in the bargain bin already. I blame it on AT&Ts throttle controversy, Motoblur's reputation, an overpriced/underwhelming lapdock, and the worst publicity campaign for a phone since the Palm Pre. I wish this phone had come to Sprint as rumored more than a month ago; it could've had a fighting chance.
