T-Mobile Sensation 4G: Has the ATRIX 4G met its match?

Let's sit down for a moment and have a talk. ATRIX 4G, you've had an alright run. You've been here for a few weeks, you've had a great time at CTIA, you've been to Barcelona, and are currently sitting in houses and apartments and businesses all across the USA. Don't you think you've had enough? It might be time that you throw in the towel. There may well be someone here who's planning on taking your place. I'm sorry but you're going to have to fight to the death for your dual-core seat of ultimate glory – it's only fair! Behold – T-Mobile Sensation 4G.

You know the players, you know their names. It's the AT&T ATRIX 4G and the HTC Sensation, both of them set to have a nice fist-fight for the wallets of good evil-fearing Americans across this fine country of ours. Which one deserves the death belt? The answer can only be found in the minds and hearts and yes, wallets of the folks who'll be making the decision in the next few weeks.

A couple more things you've got to consider are the extra accessories and functionality of each of these devices. More than a couple, in fact, as the ATRIX has not only a dock that works with several USBs, HDMI, and power, it's got a laptop dock as well, and a Bluetooth keyboard, a bluetooth mouse, and a remote! All of these things work with Motorola's desktop version of Android which currently you're only able to access via the ATRIX. On the other hand, the Sensation is just sensational. It's got that unique form factor in the swish on the back, and its chock full of HTC Sense of the newest variety – lots of surprises to be had.

So what'll it be? And will price play a factor in your mind? Android time!
