Good deal: Razr-like Atrix HD now available on AT&T for $100

Motorola Atrix HD

Make sure to take a look at our full Motorola Atrix HD review

With surprisingly little fanfare so far, Motorola has made a new phone official via its own website: The Motorola Atrix HD. The phone had previously appeared when it was leaked under the codename Dinara. It was first announced on July 5, but is now available on AT&T as of Sunday July 15. 

The design combines the Atrix 2’s soft edges with the Razr and Droid 4’s straight lines, resulting in a classy mash-up of Motorola’s recent styling successes, and again it has been constructed using Kevlar, as evidenced by the visible weave on the cool rear panel. It’ll be available in either white or a titanium finish.

Dominating the front is a 4.5-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, and Corning’s Gorilla Glass is on protection duty. If you look closely at the picture, you’ll see that the standard Android buttons have been incorporated into the screen, just like the Galaxy Nexus.

Motorola has blessed the Atrix HD with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and it promotes access to Google Play on the official page, plus other software features such as SmartActions, an app which offers several different presets suited to certain environments — Meeting mode silences the phone and auto replies to text messages for example.

It also has a “business ready” badge, where “government-grade encryption” keeps your emails, contacts and appointments safe, along with VPN support too.

Inside the Atrix HD is a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM, plus 8GB of internal storage memory and a microSD card slot, ready to accept cards up to 32GB in size.

An 8-megapixel camera lens sits alongside an LED flash on the rear panel, which in addition to stills, will also shoot 1080p video. Other Atrix HD features include a 1.3-megapixel video call camera, Bluetooth 4.0, a 1780mAh battery and a micro HDMI port. It also connects to AT&T’s 4G LTE network, and is compatible with Motorola’s Lapdock keyboard accessory.

Due to Motorola not issuing a press release yet, there’s no indication when the Atrix HD will arrive, or what it will cost when it does. There’s a button to register your interest on the webpage, but at the time of writing, it doesn’t link to anything.

We’ll update here with more information when Motorola makes it available.

Update by Jeffrey VC 7/10/2012: AT&T has sent us official confirmation that the Atrix HD will launch for $100 on July 15. It will cost $100 with a two-year contract on AT&T and will come to Bell Mobility in Canada as well.

Update by Jeffrey VC 7/16/2012: The Atrix HD is now available at AT&T for $100. It unseated the Nokia Lumia 900, which has now been bumped to $50. We’ll have impressions of the Atrix HD soon.
