    I've spent the last few weeks with the Atrix. For those considering the phone, I'd invite you to read my Motorola Atrix 4G review.

    The short version. Love the phone. Super fast, great dispaly. Not crazy about the accessories and pricing is a big part of that.

    Great concept, bad pricing. I am hoping other vendors jump on this and we see some competition.

    I completely agree. Pricing of the Atrix is very competitive. Geez, Walmart is selling the Atrix 4G for $129. That's an insane price for what you get -- dual core processor, qHD display, 1GB RAM, 16 GB of storage.

    How much is the docking station at the 'mart? The phone is great but you "need" the docking station to be uber cool. I think you could get a decent netbook for less than the prices I have seen.

    The Atrix comes with the HDMI cable, so you don't really need the dock station. It's cool, but overpriced at $129.99. I compared it to the Zune HD dock, which is priced at $89.99 (readily available for $69.99).

    completely agree with your assessment of the Atrix. Awesome phone, easily the best Android phone compatible with AT&T 3g (note I didn't say 4g lol). The Nexus One has been dethroned.

    Love the phone. Played with the laptop dock, while cool, that's about all i could say about it other than it is gimmicky. Definitely not worth that much money just to run firefox and basically an enlarged view of your phone. I may spring for the HD dock once best buy gets it and use up some of these gift cards and possibly get the bluetooth keyboard as well. But first I gotta decide if I'm gonna keep it or wait out the Thunderbolt "delays".

    I agree that the phone is really great. I got the hd dock with keyboard and mouse and its really cool. The laptop dock is imo. Way over priced ill wait and hope someone comes up with a knock off then ill get it. But the phone is amazing and I really love it.

    Im really wanting the HD dock too but hate the price. Like chris said that thing shouldn't be priced any higher than the zune HD dock. I may wait to see if the price falls due to slow sales. Still not 100% sure im gonna keep the Atrix. Hoping for Tbolt release news then ill decide

    The att store I was at has sold all of there's. I agree you should be able to get cheaper versions but I had bis discount and had credit do wasn't to bad. I don't have many options for where I live att is only one that gives good service. Well alltel worked amazing but when verzion got them they never could towers to work right. Gave them over a year to fix it before switching so im in for long haul. But even if I wasn't I think id keep atrix again iM not a demanding user so the dual core is above and beyond what I would need
