It’s been revealed in the 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.) Furthermore, the WSJ revealed that the release date for the ATRIX 4G is set for March 6th. 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.
What a price jump! The laptop dock they speak of can be seen in the video below. It appears to either be a laptop that you can plug the ATRIX 4G into, or a dock that you can plug the ATRIX 4G into that then plugs into whichever laptop you’ve got. As far as the price goes, it makes us wonder about the legitimacy of the Costco Price we posted about a week ago.
This phone appears to be ramping up to be a sort of introduction to everywhere computing, at the same time both affordable and advanced, making this Android phone a very accessible situation indeed. Have a look at the video and the laptop dock both above and below:
