While this phone doesn't have many secrets left to reveal, Motorola and AT&T just took what wraps were left off of the Atrix HD. Like recently leaked, the Atrix HD has some pretty modern specs:

  • 4.5" ColorBoost display with Gorilla Glass
  • 1.5GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear shooter, 2MP front camera
  • Android 4.0

Like the RAZR and RAZR MAXX, the Atrix HD also comes equipped with a Kevlar backing and "splash guard coating," so you should be able to use it to protect yourself from gunfire and take it swimming (Disclaimer: not really.) Motorola has also thrown its Smartactions app into the device, which is basically a Tasker-like solution, albeit not as powerful.

The real story with this mostly-impressive device, though, is the price: beginning on July 15th, you'll be able to score the Atrix HD in either white or black for a measly $99 with a two-year contract on AT&T. Not bad at all.

Motorola ATRIX™ HD for AT&T is Slimmer, Stronger and Smarter Than Ever Before

Runs Android 4.0, Created by Motorola and Available Exclusively from AT&T for $99.99 Beginning July 15 in Modern White and Titanium

July 10, 2012

DALLAS - July 10, 2012 Beginning July 15, the Motorola ATRIX™ HD arrives in all AT&T* channels for $99.99** with a two-year agreement.

The newest addition to the popular Motorola ATRIX family, this smartphone is remarkably thin at

8.4 millimeters but doesn’t compromise strength since it is made KEVLAR® strong for incredible stability in any situation. The Motorola ATRIX HD also has a high-tech, invisible nano-coating that acts as a splash guard – not only on the outer shell, but on the electrical circuit boards inside, too. To see more of the ATRIX HD’s features in action, check out this video.

Motorola ATRIX HD comes pre-loaded with SMARTACTIONS™, a free app from Motorola that suggests ways to automatically change your phone’s settings throughout the day to make your life easier. For instance, when you place the Motorola ATRIX HD in the Vehicle Navigation Dock accessory and enable Drive Smart, it will set your phone to vehicle mode, read your text messages aloud, auto-reply to incoming calls and texts as well as provide turn-by-turn navigation. You can also set rules for when your battery gets low by enacting the Battery Extender, which can help your battery last longer by turning off GPS, disabling background sync or other features you select.

To raise awareness of responsible driving, for a limited time, customers who purchase a Motorola ATRIX HD at participating locations will receive a Vehicle Dock at no additional charge.

The vibrant 4.5-inch HD ColorBoost™ display is the highest resolution smartphone display on the market supporting a wide range of more vibrant colors for greater detail and sharper, clearer images. The ATRIX HD also features an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p HD video recording capabilities at 30 frames per second and zero shutter lag. It also has a front-facing 720p HD camera.

“Our customers look to their smartphones to provide new, compelling experiences and the Motorola ATRIX HD does just that,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president – Devices, AT&T Mobility. “With features that automatically customize over time to be contextually aware of the user’s daily routine and preferences, ATRIX HD is a great example of smartphones getting smarter.”

“Motorola ATRIX HD was designed for people who get excited about new technology, but want it to make their life easier, feed their need for entertainment and make a statement,” said Mark Shockley, senior vice president, Go-to-Market, Motorola Mobility. “This next evolution of the ATRIX family delivers a slimmer, stronger, smarter, Android-powered device at a great price.”

Running on Android™ 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, the ATRIX HD is the first phone equipped with Motorola’s Circle Widget on the home screen, which connects directly with your AT&T account and displays data usage since your last bill***. Plus, it gives you “at-a-glance” access to the time, notifications, weather and battery meter. You can also access more than 600,000 apps and games on Google Play™, as well as millions of books and songs and thousands of movies and TV shows.

And to help in your work life, the Motorola ATRIX HD is ideal for business use and comes with advanced security features including password protection and inactivity timeouts, VPN, government-grade data encryption on both the device and SD card, and the ability to wipe the phone and SD card in the event your phone is lost or stolen. With apps like Quickoffice, customers are able to create and edit documents and stay connected to their work on-the-go.

AT&T customers have access to the nation’s largest 4G network, covering more than 260 million people. AT&T has two 4G networks that work together for customers, LTE and HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul. That means AT&T customers are able to enjoy a widespread, ultra-fast and consistent 4G experience on their compatible device as they move in and out of LTE areas. With other carriers, when you travel outside of their LTE coverage area, you’re on a much slower 3G network.

    It it has the S4 this is an excellent buy. If it has OMAP however then its pretty outdated considering you can get the One X for $50 more.

    • Stephane Boisvert

      It's the Snapdragon.

        If so, that's quite a good deal. The locked bootloader is pretty disappointing though. I don't think we can expect anything more from Motorola anytime soon though.

        • Stephane Boisvert

          Well the bootloader was locked on my Atrix 4G as well, but I'm sporting a custom ROM on it right now despite that. ;-)

            I know you can get around them (I own a device that is similar) but it is annoying.

    Created by the old Motorola, released by the new Motorola.

    I think the $99 price tag is an excellent indicator of what new moto thinks of old moto.

    So, according to Google, Motorola(along with the other major hardware partners) has had the jellybean PDK for the last 3-4 months. I'm guessing the fact that this still has ICS means that we can expect that initiative to have 0 effect on upgrade dates.

    Pretty good deal on the phone considering its price. I think I might write about this at my website.

  • Rodd

    any word on whether or not they have changed their policy on bootloaders??

  • ElfirBFG

    Gah, I know I kinda shit talked it before, but I think I might get this as an upgrade if I can/it comes to Bell. Especially now that I've seen the all-black one. Hopefully the Atrix/Photon devs will get it and unlock the bl and allow us custom ROMs.

  • Big Rich

    Sounds good, but then AT&T and Moto are gonna get in a finger pointing match about why the bootloader is locked and who is preventing who from unlocking it.....been there, done that. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice.......
