AT&T Motorola ATRIX 4G due March 6: $200 alone or $500 with Laptop Dock

AT&T plans to begin taking pre-orders for the Motorola ATRIX 4G from February 13, with deliveries and general sales of the sizeable Android smartphone expected on March 6. That's according to the WSJ, which claims to have been told the dates from the carrier itself. As for pricing the ATRIX 4G will be $199.99 with a new two-year agreement; just make sure you have deep pockets if you also want the clever laptop dock.

That's because, if you buy the two together, AT&T is asking a hefty $499.99. Still, it's cheaper to buy first rather than think it over, since the laptop dock alone is $499.99 if bought separately. For your money you get an 11.6-inch screen and a full-sized keyboard, as we discovered in our hands-on at CES 2011.

The ATRIX 4G itself runs NVIDIA's Tegra 2 superphone chipset and has a qHD 4-inch display. There's also a full version of Firefox, which almost makes up for the fact that the smartphone runs Android 2.2 Froyo.
