This weekend, Amazon put the Motorola Atrix on sale for $49.99 with a two year deal. And they were VERY quiet about it too. The sub $50 price tag is the lowest the Atrix has been advertised for to date and shows that Amazon is being pretty aggressive with this Android phone. The sale is still available until midnight tonight, so if you've been wanting to get your this new 4G phone from AT&T, you better hurry, because the clock is ticking.

One word of warning though, the price is for NEW customers only, if you're an existing customer with Ma Bell, you'll be looking at a $99.99 price to upgrade. Amazon is also offering $100 off the Laptop Dock Accessory for those who purchase the phone as well. A coupon code will be emailed within 10 business days after purchase and will be good for up to 60 days. Sounds like a screaming deal if you can jump on it.

The Motorola Atrix is the flagship of AT&Ts 4G network. It won the Best in Show from CES this year for it's innovative design and accessories to turn it into a viable laptop computer. It has a 1 Ghz dual core Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and a 4 inch qHD touchscreen display with 24 bit color. It's powered by Android 2.2 (Froyo), sadly, but we're certain Gingerbread will come as soon as AT&T gets around to it. So if you're not an AT&T customer and are just looking for an excuse to get the Atrix, here it is!

    I have a Motorola Atrix. I paid $670 for this dud. Lags terribly with live wallpapers, gets really warm doing anything, and battery life drops 10% per hour. I can’t view photos I’ve taken, and the Tegra 2 games are overpriced and underwhelming. The PenTile screen pixels are visible with the naked eye, yellow looks orange, and the green in particular is visibly PenTile.

    Oh, and Tegra 2 can’t run my 720p mkv video files, I need to “recode” them.

    Worst thing? It’s locked down for development, so I can’t get a ROM or a new Android version unless Motorola and the Carrier decide to make it and send it over.

    Overall, this will be my last Motorola Android device purchase. I’m sticking to HTC and Samsung from here on.

      10% per hour huh? sounds like a formidable smartphone battery to me they advertise 8.8 or so hours and you claim 10. Nice. I’ll take ipad like battery life out of a smartphone anyday.

    I’ve got the Atrix and love it. Wish I had waited until now, though. This is a screamin’ deal. This phone is awesome. I believe that the only reason it hasn’t sold very well is that they botched the marketing for it. Instead of touting the incredible phone and its awesome features, they try to market it with the lame laptop accessory. People don’t understand how incredible the phone is. The phone stands alone, with dual core processor, 1GB of ram, awesome GPS, loud speaker, etc. etc.
