Motorola’s state-of-the-art Atrix 4G smartphone won’t break the bank if a couple of pricing rumors prove accurate.
On Thursday evening, an Amazon product page briefly listed the Atrix 4G for $150 with a new two-year contract. Amazon removed the page, but then Android Central received an image of a Costco inventory screen, also showing a $150 price tag. Third-party retailers usually sell phones for lower than the suggested price, so if these prices are correct, my guess is that AT&T will sell the Atrix 4G for $200, or $250 at the most.
The Atrix was one of the most interesting products at CES. It’s part of the first wave of dual-core smartphones, powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 2 processor and Android 2.2, and has a 4-inch display, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of on-board storage, front- and rear-facing cameras, a 1930 mAh battery and a fingerprint reader. Motorola will also sell laptop and desktop docks that run a full version of Firefox, powered entirely by the phone.
