Now available: Motorola ATRIX 2 and Motorola XOOM Family Edition
AT&T and Best Buy are each launching a Motorola device on Sunday. For AT&T, it is the Motorola ATRIX 2 that is being released for $99 with a signed 2-year contract. The sequel model to the "world's most powerful smartphone" features a larger 4.3 inch qHD display, bigger than the 4 inch screen on the original handset. A dual-core 1GHz processor is under the hood along with 1GB of RAM. An 8MP camera on back, a upgrade from the 5MP camera on the first-gen unit, captures video at 1080p while a front-facing shooter lets you take self-portraits and engage in video chat. 8GB of internal storage can be boosted to as much as 40GB  by using a microSD card. Android 2.3 is pre-installed on the phone.

The Motorola XOOM Family Edition is being released by Best Buy today for $379. Basically the same model as the original Motorola XOOM tablet, the Family Edition gets its name from a number of pre-loaded treats that the kids (or the kid in you) can use such as Zoodles, Asphalt 6 and SIM City Deluxe. Quickoffice is pre-loaded for the working adults in the house. The Motorola XOOM Family Edition offers the same 10.1 inch screen with 1280 x800 resolution, 16GB of native storage, 1GB of RAM and runs on Android Honeycomb 3.1. Under the hood you will find the same dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor than runs the original model.

If the NFL action is boring you today and you have some money burning a hole in your pocket, you might want to check out the Motorola ATRIX 2 at AT&T or the Family Edition of the Motorola XOOM at Best Buy, both being released today.
