Default Is anybody picking this up?

Just wondering who will be getting this phone when it comes out. I'd like to upgrade when the device launches, but my early upgrade with AT&T comes in October, so I'll have to wait a bit.

Even with the locked bootloader, I think this device has potential in the development world.

Matt

Welcome Mattbe213, to Android Forums!
We are so glad you have joined us here.

I am sure there will be lots of traffic in this forum once the phone is released, but you will always be the first post here.

I will be upgrading as soon as it's available. I have been patiently waiting for something worthy to trade in my Atrix 4G for. This is the best offering yet, so I am in. I like the free car dock and nano water protection. Should be a nice phone.

CANT WAIT TILL THE WEEKEND!

I may get it used after it's been out for a few months. I'm waiting for my AT&T contract to end in February and then I'm moving to Straight Talk so I'm not going to sign another contract.

I'm definitely picking this up. I am currently using the HTC One X but am ready to get rid of it and switch to the Atrix HD. Since the OG Atrix, I've loved what Motorola has done with the Androids. I've always had great battery life, decent update support and no issues. I was a big fan of the Atrix 4G, switched when the Atrix 2 came out and really the only reason I switched out of that is because I wanted an LTE capable phone.

I've already gotten the chance to hold one and play around with it for a bit and I am very excited for it. Can't wait.

Edit: I also read that Moto is developing a tool to unlock the bootloader similar to the one HTC has so the phone will be very developer friendly.

WHOA WHOA WHOA ...I call foul, no fair no fair, where and how have you gotten to see it and check it out??????

I can't decide if I want white or off black... and no one has them where I can see them in my neck of the woods. Heck everyone I talk to is giving me the "I assume they will be here" SAME BS as with the first Atrix launch.

Hehe...I work for a retailer and one of the Moto reps came by our store to show us the phone. It was the titanium grey model. Being that the kevlar finish is black on both models (I believe) I think I'm going to stick with that color rather than the white.

I like how it feels in the hand, definitely feels durable. No cheap plastic like feel like some have complained on the S3.

As for how it performs...I only played with it for about 2 minutes. So it's hard to say. I did try scrolling and the multi-tasking and it was smoothe. It has a feature which I haven't seen before; you can flick upwards on the phone, messaging and browser icon and it brings up a preview window of your most recent, calls or bookmarks. I'm not sure how many other of the icons do this but I found that extremely cool.

The circle widget that comes on board is also awesome. It's not a game changing feature but the fact that I can see my batter %, data usage and time, on one widget by simply flicking it...that was sweet.

I'm skeptical that the Atrix HD won't be compatible with the Lapdock 100 or 500
Motorola ATRIX HD won’t have Lapdock/Webtop capabilities

I don't think there'll be any problem at least trying it. It may not have the webdock support on the phone, but maybe some functions will still work. Reason I believe there'd still be some functionality is because this works:

I was waiting for this phone to come out. I am currently on vzw with the Maxx. Moving to ATT and this phone is a serious contender. Also considered the One X, S3. The new interface looks great.

Anyone know if the Atrix HD will be sold at Best Buy on Sunday? Will it include the car dock free promo if so?

Only ask because they are willing to give me $150 for my Atrix 4G (yea I keep em in good shape) That being the case I could upgrade and have change back, which would be nice.

I am tempted to keep my Atrix being as it was such a ground breaking phone and nothing else like it has been made, but I am kinda tight this month and would prefer to be as cheap as possible. Not like I am ever going to actually USE it again, just sentimental.

I'd just call your local Best Buy and ask. I'm pretty sure the free car dock promotion is being run by Motorola, so you might want to chat with a rep on the Motorola website and see how that is going to work.

Oh I tried to call Best Buy, they have no clue. First it was call back tomorrow then call back Thursday night, then call Saturday. No one has any clue if they will have it.

Just wondering if anyone here had the inside skinny.

Thanks though.

You know, I'm just as curious as you, so let me see what the skinny is at the local L.A. Best Buy's. Even though I don't have ATT, I have a few family members that I'm sure would be interested. I'm almost positive that there are BB Mobile (or former) employees that post on this forum. Just not sure if they've seen this thread.

Quite honestly, it kinda feels the same way the release for the Photon was last year. Not much fanfare, not much publicity, no pre-order because the anticipation for stock was not expected to sell out fast.

I called a couple local best buy's and unfortunately, they gave me a similar speech. Their stock for weekend sales usually gets delivered on Thursdays, so if they didn't receive it yesterday, it's not likely they'll have it available for sale on Sunday.

That said, just for some peace of mind, they pulled exactly the same thing on many Photon owners when it was released at the end of July last year. Ultimately, what I did was on the day of release (July 31), I called every single Best Buy within a 15 mile radius from my house starting with the closest to the furthest. The first one that said they got it in stock, I asked them to hold for me and I would be there to pick it up in 20 minutes. I went through 2 (smaller) stores, prior to getting confirmation that they had it. The store that ended up having it had enough stock that they said I didn't even need to keep it on hold because they got more than enough shipped to them and I was the first one to call about it (1 hour after the store opened).

I got the phone yesterday and so far so good. Great battery life, I love the smart profiles and their ICS integration is solid.

FYI, AT&T is giving you a free car dock when you buy the Atrix HD with a 2 year contract.

Just picked up the phone to replace my wife's atrix 4g. The phone is really nice. I'm not eligible for an upgrade till February or I would have picked up two. As for the free car dock my location is not giving them away for free. They checked around and said they couldn't find any promotion for the free car dock. So if you get one its just gravy. But 99 dollars for the phone you get is an amazing deal!

I'll emailed motorola and they emailed me back saying there is no free car dock promotion. If I could provide an official motorola link they would honor it. The only links I have found have not been from at&t or motorola. Not complaining its still a great phone.

Okay, I read through an article and it does look like it's an ATT promotion:

Motorola Atrix HD official, headed to AT&T with 4G LTE for $99.99 | PhoneDog

So, maybe you can call around to see if any of the ATT's are willing to ship to you, if your local ATT isn't doing the promotion.

I'm hoping they'll do the same type of promotion for the Motorola Photon Q. Even though that won't be my primary phone, this would be ideal for the person I'm getting the Photon Q for.

I will chime in again after my first full day with the phone. Honestly I can't say enough about it. Feels great in the hand, form factor is superb. Feels like a quality device yet still light and agile. Screen is fantastic, crisp, clear, bright pleasing color presentation ... I can't get over the improvement (screen wise) from the Atrix 4G. Speed is great, both the processor and ram in the phone and the LTE connectivity is fantastic here in KC. All around the phone performs like a champ. The circle widget is a REALLY nice add on and I really enjoy the moto/ICS interface as well.

All in all, 40 hours in I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars. For $50 (at Best Buy) this is quite possibly the deal of the century. I can't believe I got this much phone for a quarter of what I paid for my Atrix 4G a year and a half ago. I am thrilled.

If you have the means I highly recommend you go out and pick one up.

I just picked mine up Monday, and so far I'm very impressed. It's bright, fast, smooth, and feels great in my hand (and I like the look of it better than the SIII or One X). It's a great deal for a phone with the same SoC (CPU/GPU) and screen resolution, only $50 at Best Buy. I was in and out of there in 5 minutes!

My only complaints so far (and I'm watching to see if they're real problems or not) are:
1. The wi-fi seems to cut out easily if the signal is weak (my Captivate had a stronger signal in some areas of my house/work)
2. The battery doesn't seem to last very long but I've been playing with it a LOT
3. The camera is just OK, not as rich in color as my SGS - things sometime look a little blue. It does have a burst mode and a panorama mode, as well as a selection of scene modes and effects.

Pluses:
1. GPS is AWESOME! (I had a Captivate before this, but even with the SUPL modification it was a bit slow.)
2. ICS is great, face unlock works well.
3. Fast!
4. Nice screen

Regarding the wifi signal, that seems to be a very similar issue that I've had with my Photon. They've fixed it slightly, through updates, but still not as strong as I had experienced with HTC, Samsung or LG.

One thing that I love on the Photon, but I'm not sure if it's standard for Motorola devices in general, is the Battery Saving settings that it has built into the phone. There are different modes you can use or you can even customize the modes based on your daily usage. It's a great feature that has been perfect for my Photon and gets me through an entire 12 hour work day, prior to needing a charge.

The wifi thing is definitely a moto issue. I have the razr maxx and I could be standing next to my router and it fluctuates, quite a bit. The S3 I just picked up does not do this odd behavior. In fact, standing in my back yard, the wifi signal is strong on the S3

Long story short it was mass confusion. (Not intentional)

I gave my wife my upgrade back in December to get her Atrix 2, so I used her upgrade to get my HD. When best buy set it up they ended up killing my wifes sim card. I called ATT and they said to go to the ATT corp store and get a new sim. We went and after explaining to the guy that I had gotten the phone on release day (never said where) and what had happened he got my wifes phone fixed. I asked him while he was getting her new sim set up about the dock that was supposed to be free, he hadn't heard about it and was not even sure they had the dock. So he looks it up sees the free deal and that they have 3 docks, so he goes and grabs me one and voids out the price.

It was kind of amazing how it worked out.

I dropped the phone and cracked the screen.

I'd like to add that I dropped my One X in the same manner (fell of the couch to a 3 feet drop, flat on the screen) and nothing happened to it. The Atrix HD fell once, flat on its front and I got 5 cracks on it.

I know its my fault for dropping it but damn the screen is weak lol.
