AT&T Begins Sales Of Motorola's High-End Atrix HD For Just $100 On Contract

The smartphone wars are seriously heating up, and with Android recently taking the market share lead in the U.S., it's no surprise to see Motorola continuing to pop out new Android-based phones. With the Atrix 4G and Atrix 2 behind us, the Atrix HD is stepping up to keep the name and legacy alive. It's a pretty special phone, actually. While you may assume it's just another Android option in AT&T's lineup, it's the first of its kind to be offered at $99.99 on a 2-year contract. It offers a true 720p display on a 4.5" capacitive multi-touch panel, a splash resistant case (with a touch of Kevlar, too), Android 4.0 and support for a Vehicle Dock.

Motorola has spiced up Ice Cream Sandwich as well, offering a refined homescreen that provides easy access to some of the more useful features of the phone. It'll be offered in White and Titanium colors, and it's on sale today after being initially introduced earlier in the month.

No, it doesn't run Jelly Bean (Android 4.1), but your only phone option right now for that is the Galaxy Nexus HSPA+, which can be had for as little as $349 off-contract. If you dig the latest specs and Moto's changes to Android, it'll be tough to beat the asking price on this guy.
