Wall Street Journal was speaking with AT&T Mobility Chief Executive Ralph de la Vega and had confirmed the release date and preorder date for the Motorola Atrix 4G.

The price of the phone (without the laptop dock) is still set at $199.99 with 2-year service agreement.

Wall Street Journal with AT&T Mobility Chief Executive Ralph de la Vega that the ATRIX 4G will be going on presale with AT&T starting on February 13th (right at the beginning of Mobile World Congress 2011, which Android Community will be attending.)

The phone will be priced at $199.99 with a two-year agreement, and $499.99 if you purchase the phone with the laptop dock at the same time.
Motorola Atrix 4G, LG Optimus 2X, HTC ThunderBolt - am I missing any? With massive speeds from dual-core Tegra 2 processors, gigantic cameras, and "most powerful" tags being thrown around, what ground is left for the Galaxy S 4G? Why, the middle ground of course. That special place for people that've had an Android phone before but don't quite want to shell out $300 to $600 for a superphone that they won't know what to do with anyway. That place where customers want it to go fast, they want it to work, and they want it to look basically sort of nice on the outside. This is Galaxy S 4G range.
Motorola DROID Bionic and ATRIX 4G allegedly both suffer from a power management fault that could lead to the smartphones overheating even when idle. According to trusted source kbman at HowardForums, his contacts involved in testing the smartphones claim the issues could affect radio performance among other things.
"The problem has to do with the PMU and causes a variety of issues including severe overheating even while at idle, power fluctuations affecting RF performance and cold boot issues"More concerning are suggestions that the problem is "unfixable", though another user claiming insider information claims the PMU problem is in fact due to be addressed this week. While no specific evidence has been produced, kbman has a track record of inside Motorola information that is leaving would-be Bionic buyers wary of the new smartphone. [via Electronista] Update: Motorola has been in touch to say "there are no overheating issues and the products will ship as scheduled."
