Atrix 2

The Motorola Atrix 2 should be hitting AT&T store shelves Sunday Oct. 16, but in at least one location they are already sitting pretty and ready for fondling.  A reader sent these pics in, saying that the manager of his local AT&T store has already put them out "by mistake".  He goes on to tell us two pretty interesting things -- the H+ icon in the status bar has been replaced with a "4G" logo, and the screen on the new models is good enough that he doesn't think it's a pentile matrix display.  While the network icon is pretty lulzworthy, the news about an improved screen is good to hear.  Maybe this is a worthy refresh after all?  hit the break for another pic, and check out our hands-on.

Thanks, anon!

At&t version of the Photon 4G??

Mr.Froyo says:

The Photon was basically a Sprint version of the Atrix 1. This is more an a AT&T Bionic

MacBook says:

Internally yes. But the exterior is the Photon

Looks like atrix 2 is going to be one of att's top android phones. I would love to see a comparison video between atrix 2 and nexus prime. Im jumping ship on ios (currently using iphone 3g) yea i could have upgraded to 3gs/4/4s but i didnt care for 3gs monor upgrades, iphone 4 death grip (im a lefty) and iphone 4s doesnt impress me. Referencing phils post earlier im one of those nerds who roots/jailbreaks their phones. Google has become leader in this imdustry and apple is in some real trouble. Im pumped for the nexus prime/ ICS unveil soon

Any ideas on non contract price?

planoman says:

$449.00 according to AT&T website.

kurioskurion says:

99.99 for this phone is a great price. HTC needs to get on the ball with at&t. The Inspire is starting to look out dated!

Gadgetroid says:

The battle for the ultimate Christmas Smartphone is hotting up. With so many launched its going to be interesting now that google has taken over Motorola.

It's about time you realized Pentile sucked

Chris says:

They had it out at the store near me too.

joeym2 says:

Motorola will no longer use pentile matrix displays. Starting with this phone

Chris says:

Haha it's actually a PenTile Matrix display.

It's not the same, but it is PenTile Matrix.

It's Super AMOLED, which is PenTile Matrix RG-BG.

Do you know that samsung will go back to pentile ? No more super amoled plus :)

FrasierCrane says:

It looks pretty damned good. I'm glad Motorola is catching up again.

AnGeLFaCe77 says:

I am glad as well. Moto should of stayed with the lcd or integrate super lcd, the one that htc uses.

AnGeLFaCe77 says:

this device look so nice, it tops the bionic because it does not have the cheap pentile display. The pentile that this one will use it is neat :)
