Motorola Atrix 4G on Amazon for $150; Could it Mean $300 with the Docks Included?

January 31, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Tread on to Amazon territory, of late? If you haven’t, chances are that you might have missed this. For, the online retailer had listed the Motorola Atrix 4G smartphone on their pages and subsequently pulled the page.  The pricing that was on the Amazon page, in fact, toed the line of what we have heard earlier – the handset was listed for $150.

There isn’t any reason for you to be overjoyed, as the page has already disappeared.  What is of interest to us is the costing detail that Amazon had put up for potential buyers. It may be  noteworthy that the price point comes as a surprise. Considering that the device releases on AT&T in the US by the end of February, we guess we should take the Amazon listing seriously.

One reason why it comes as a surprise is that the Atrix 4G pricing would help Motorola and AT&T push the dual-core revolution with that amount on board. As you all might have realized by now, the  Motorola Atrix 4G has some amazing features that make it the  most powerful smartphone ever. But then the price point of $150 makes it absolutely amusing.

We don’t need to tell you yet again that the Atrix 4G will be the first Android 2.2 device with a  2GHz chip that has two 1GHz processors. The Atrix 4G will come with a 4-inch screen, 1GB of RAM, front-and-rear cameras and a fingerprint reader.

Now here’s something you need to digest before charting out your shopping plan. The device has been tailor-made to run with desktop and laptop docks. This, in turn, will allow users to connect with the phone to a computer so as to run applications using the Mozilla Firefox browser. The docks, we learn, could cost $150. This price, married to the pricing on Amazon, would mean that the retail price of the phone could be $300.

Are you okay with the pricing now? Think about it, and please don’t hesitate to let us know.
