AT&T today announced that it will make the Motorola Artix 4G available for preorder starting on February 13, with the device launching on March 6. The Atrix 4G will cost $199.99 and requires a new two-year contract. AT&T will be offering two accessory bundles with the Atrix 4G. The first combines the Atrix 4G and the laptop dock in one bundle. It costs $499 after a $100 mail-in rebate, and it requires a subscription to AT&T's Data Pro smartphone plan and tethering add on. Alternately, customers may purchase the laptop dock separately for a flat fee of $499. The second bundle includes the Motorola HD Multimedia Dock, a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, and a remote control for $189.99 (this bundle does not include the Atrix 4G). The HD Multimedia Dock will also be available separately for $129.99. The Atrix 4G has dual-core 1GHz processors and runs Android 2.2.

$499 For the laptop dock

The max they should charge for it is $250. I am still getting this phone jsut dissapointed with the dock pricing.
I think it said you can get the phone and the laptop dock for $499, so that aint bad.
"It should be noted, however, that the bundle only applies if you also sign your name to a Data Pro plan and tethering add-on, so be sure you're down for that monthly hit before committing in haste. Oh, and just in case you simply can't stop spending,...
no way in hell I'd pay $500 (or $400 + tethering) for something like that...

i agree with everyone on the pricing. at&t and motorola are a little too proud of this device. be patient guys, when sales are sluggish they'll become a lot more aggressive with their pricing trust me.

'4G' is a vague term. All the carriers that claim their networks are '4G'? Psst. They're n...
HSPA+ speeds will not be available everywhere. att is backhauling towers to allow better speeds. I dont care what its called, 4G or whatever, Im sure it will be faster..that is all that counts..right?
no, but 4G is a hell of alot easier to say then HSPA+. Nor would the average consumer know what the hell HSPA+ is. They just know 4G's are faster the 3G's. So from a marketing stand point its the right thing to do.
i wikipedia about 4g...

LTE advanced is the real 4g!

so this 3g plus! Lame!

ACC prices far too high.

Like someone else mentioned, the max the doc should go for is $250, though $199/150 would be a better price since all the expensive bits (save the screen) are inside the phone already.
