If you've been holding out on getting a bundle of goodies to go with your Motorola ATRIX, there is good news. AT&T has just dropped the price of the ATRIX's Entertainment Centre/Webtop Access bundle down to a cool $99. That's down from the original $190 price tag, and still lower than Amazon's offering of $140.

The kit includes an HD Multimedia Dock, cordless mouse, and Universal Bluetooth keyboard. If you want to get your hands on this hot deal, head over to the product page at AT&T.

Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play, also known as the Playstation Phone, will be hitting AT&T's HSPA+ network on September 18th for a mere $50, finally allowing gamers rocking Ma Bell to let go some of that envy towards VZW. This portable gaming/smartphone hybrid sports a 4-inch screen, 1GHz processor, 512MB RAM, 5MP rear shooter, and Android 2.3 out of the box; what really makes this device unique, though, it its slide-out Playstation gamepad and exclusive gaming content.

While Verizon just announced the most powerful device to hit its 4G LTE network to date, AT&T decided to keep the announcements a bit more budget-friendly by dropping the news about the Huawei Impulse 4G, a phone geared towards feature phone users that are looking to jump into the smartphone ring.

The Impulse is a mid-ranger with a 3.8 inch touchscreen, a 5MP rear shooter, and Android 2.2 all running on AT&T's HSPA+ network -- not a powerhouse by any means, but you can't really expect much more from a $30 device.

Sprint

Last week, the US Department of Justice filed an antitrust complaint against the proposed AT&T/T-Mobile deal. Naturally, Sprint was quite pleased by this, as it has been fighting this deal tooth-and-nail since its initial announcement. Now, The Now Network has filed its own suit to block the deal.

Sprint's lawsuit is focused on how this merger would affect both competition and the consumer market, citing that it would:

  • Harm retail consumers and corporate customers by causing higher prices and less innovation.

A couple of weeks ago the first photos of the HTC Holiday emerged, displaying its impressive hardware innards for the world to see. Now, BGR has landed some new photos of this up-and-coming device, which includes speed tests that show what AT&T's LTE network is capable of. Clocking an astounding 29Mbps, AT&T is looking to put the hurt on VZW's LTE network once it becomes more widespread.

Yes, a cotton swab is now an acceptable standard of measurement.

Adding to the pile of news surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S II this week, we have some new info -- some good and some bad . The good news is that the AT&T and T-Mobile variants will both be equipped with NFC. Engadget (along with François Simond) took a peak earlier today into the system files of AT&T's S II variant and found conclusive evidence of NFC presence, including a pre-installed app, but whether mobile payments will be one of the SII's capabilities remains to be seen.

In the ongoing saga that is the AT&T and T-Mobile merger, yet another bump in the road has surfaced. This time it's directly from the United States government, who says that if the AT&T/T-Mobile merger were to go through, it would "remove a significant competitive force from the market." As a result, the U.S. has filed an antitrust complaint looking to block the proposed deal.

While this doesn't mean a guaranteed rejection, it is most definitely going to make progress much harder for Ma Bell.

Last Updated: November 14th, 2011

We've been hearing rumors about a 10-inch HTC tablet codenamed Puccini for nearly three months now, and AT&T has finally taken the wraps off of this Honeycomb 3.1 tablet, revealing its official name, price, and availability.

The tablet will be known as the HTC Jetstream and will run on Ma Bell's brand-spankin'-new LTE network, sporting the previously rumored hardware:

  • 10.1-inch display
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
  • 8MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front camera
  • LTE (700/AWS)
  • HSPA+/HSPA/UMTS (850/1900/2100 MHz)
  • EDGE/GPRS (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
  • Android 3.1 with Sense UX
  • HTC Scribe Pen included

While this may sound like a pretty solid device, the price doesn't even begin to justify it: $699 with a two-year agreement.

The official Galaxy S II press conference has only just begun (it's streaming live now), but all 3 carriers we've been expecting to see the S II on - Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile - have already sent out their press releases.

The Galaxy SII is already available in Europe and Korea, debuting as Samsung's fastest selling smartphone to date. The 3 variants in the U.S. will share many of the same specs, but some aspects, such as the screen sizes, battery capacities, and mobile radios, will be different.

Update: On further reflection, we're going to tentatively call this image a "rumor" for now, as we have no way to confirm its authenticity, but we have no reason to think these images are fake, either.

Finally, visual proof that unicorns do exist! Someone, somewhere, has leaked a shot of the upcoming Galaxy S II US market handsets headed for three of America's big four carriers (ATT, T-Mo, Sprint). Without further ado, here they are:

Where the image is from, we're not sure (pocketnow provided no details), but it could very well be a slide from Samsung's upcoming press conference to announce the arrival of the first US-friendly Galaxy S II phones.
