The AT&T Motorola Atrix HD was launched yesterday as planned for $99 and we have a price reduction already, courtesy of Best Buy. The new Android smartphone is being sold for a mere $49.99 on a two year contract as of today. The price mentioned is merely for the device though, as contracts and data plans will set you back further. Users will have to opt for a monthly voice/data plan of at least $60 and there’s the initial activation fee of $36.
But all things considered, $50 is a great deal. The device wasn’t too bad at $99 which is a bargain in itself considering the smartphone’s caliber. You can get the device without the contract for a hefty $599.99. The offer is valid on Best Buy stores for both White and Titanium color variants. However, it is being reported that the White version is currently out of stock, so it is listed as up for backorder. But if you want the Razr HD immediately regardless of its color, the Titanium color variant should do just fine.
The device is pretty decent and rightly a flagship from Motorola. AT&T slashed the prices of the Lumia 900 by half yesterday with this new droid hitting the shelves. Remember this is a Best Buy only promotion, so make sure you head into a store to get yours. The Atrix HD packs a more than decent 4.5-inch HD display, a dual core Snapdragon S4 chip clocked at 1.5 GHz, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP camera accompanied by a 1.3MP front facing shooter, 8GB of onboard storage with a microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB) and Android 4.0.4 operating system.
The device also features a splash resistant surface and Corning’s scratch resistant Gorilla Glass display. It sports a Kevlar back, similar to the Droid Razr and has a 1,780mAh battery. At 8.4mm, it’s not as slim as the Droid Razr, but is certainly slimmer than most rival smartphones. I must say, I’m pleasantly surprised by the pricing of the new Motorola smartphone. With a pricing like this, there is no doubt that more and more customers will line up to get the device. Did you get yours?
