Update: If you have some sort of unholy vendetta against Best Buy and refuse to order anything from there, you'll be glad to know that Amazon now has the same deal. Both white and black versions of the Atrix HD are now $50 for new and existing customers.

Well, would you look at that. The new Motorola Atrix HD "4G" officially went on sale just today, and Best Buy has already chopped off fully half of its reasonable asking price.

Users of Motorola's Atrix 2 who have been yearning for a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich on their devices have something to be excited about today – earlier this morning, an official ICS OTA update was leaked, or rather discovered using CheeseCake, a tool that essentially allows individuals to check specialized Moto servers for updates, meaning no company personnel need be involved in the leak. Here's a quick explanation from our contact Manoj:

Almost all Motorola based Android distros are fist put through a planning then development stage.

"AT&T gives customers more choice with new shared wireless data plans." That's the headline of the press release that AT&T sent out about its new shared data packages. Keywords: more choice. That's a polite way of saying "we're aiming to confuse the crap out of you." Unlike Verizon's shared data packages, which are about as simple to understand as they come, AT&T did what AT&T does best: took the simple and made it far more complex than in should be.

Samsung has been on a roll here lately with the source code releases, and it just dropped the ICS kernel code for the AT&T Galaxy Note. That's definitely good news, because no sooner than the code had landed, the CM team went to work on CM9 nightlies for the device almost immediately and pushed the first one out just a little while ago.

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

Well, so much for the idea of a patriotic-themed launch party for this device. Still, if you're on AT&T and you're excited about getting your hands on the exclusive red version of Samsung's latest and greatest flagship phone, your wait is about to be at an end. In a few short days, starting on July 15th, AT&T will be offering the device en rouge via pre-order on its site.

The Android development community couldn't be more on fire today now that Android 4.1 has been fully open sourced. While the Jelly Bean flavored CyanogenMod 10 is not just here just yet (though work has already begun), the CyanogenMod team released a fantastic treat for new Galaxy S III owners on AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile - official nightlies, available for downloading and flashing right now:

  • Galaxy S III for AT&T (d2att)
  • Galaxy S III for Sprint (d2spr)
  • Galaxy S III for T-Mobile (d2tmo)

Those wondering whether Motorola's recently-announced Atrix HD will carry a locked bootloader can exhale – in a string of tweets earlier this evening, Moto confirmed that, yes, the Atrix HD's bootloader will be locked and signed.

That being said, Moto indicated that their "goal" is to provide a way to "unlock the bootloaders on our devices to those who wish to do so," adding that more details are "to come."

What this means for the end user is that (for now) customization of the Atrix HD will be severely limited.

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.

While Samsung may have started pushing the ICS update to international Galaxy Notes back in May, AT&T owners of what is essentially the same device were left wanting. Today, however, that all changes; Samsung has made available Ice Cream Sandwich for the AT&T version of the Note.

Aside from all the added benefits and enhancements of Ice Cream Sandwich, Samsung has also includes its "Premium Suite" of apps designed specifically for the Note.
