A few weeks ago AT&T revealed that the Motorola Atrix 4G would be on sale from March 6th, but according to BGR's sources the netbook-smartphone hybrid may be launching as early as February 22nd.

Update: It's confirmed.

The earlier announcement also indicated that this highly anticipated phone would cost $200 with a two-year contract and $500 in total with the dock (if bought separately, the phone would cost $200 and the dock would cost an additional $500).

Early reviewers aren't exactly huge fans of this novel, albeit flawed device. The reportedly sluggish performance doesn't justify the  excessive price of the dock. However, there are some positives, such as a long-lasting battery, blazing fast performance and lots of RAM!

    I just don't care anymore, after they announced the price of the laptop dock. It doesn't help that there are some issue that need to be addressed (flaws). It doesn't "do more than a Netbook" as AT&T claims. You cannot add applications to the Webtop application at this point, so why even bother given the price you would have to pay. if the laptop dock was truly an active component that could operate on it's own, it might be worth it. Not for a lump of plastic and a battery.

    After reading the latest benchmarks on mobile devices and seeing the results, I am sticking with my CM7 Nexus 1. Couple the results with EVERYTHING ATT has done wrong with the Atrix (pricing, Laptop dock price, tethering plan required, etc.) and the early reviews, makes the Atrix a NO WAY for me. I stuck with ATT through their Iphone love fest and hoped one day they would embrace Android but no. SO ATT, stop offering LOCKED DOWN crippled devices and get with the program!
