    Lets be real about this, Apple makes some really good products and even better hardware. I wish some Android phone makers would take some notes on hardware design. Even though the iPhone 4 is overhyped software wise, the hardware is beautiful.
  2. you are correct beautiful phone i think secretly every droid owner wished that iOS was android like in its useability

    Haha, I'm with you. I've had my Backflip since around May and my upgrade comes February 4th. I like my Backflip but I can't wait to get something better.

    It's pretty, but someone needs fired! Glass on the front and back is just a dumb idea.

    I can deal with the glass on the back far better than the flimsy battery covers say like on the Incredible that creek and break. The real problem with the glass on the back is the type of glass they used. If they would have used say Gorilla glass or some other type of scratch resistance glass then it wouldn't be a big problem. As far as drops, well I don't drop my phones and I'd be pissed whether it was the iPhone 4 or my Droid Incredible.

    I disagree, they have been know to have issues both on hardware and software on all their models. Stop making the iphone to be more special than what it is.

    I've had ALL models of the iPhone and I can tell you. They are built better than any other phones I have ever had. There is something to be said for sealed phones that contain a lot of metal and glass.

    Technological (antenna) problems have nothing to do with build quality.

    iPhone build quality is second to none.

    That being said. I want an ATRIX.

  8. Have to agree my friend

    I contacted a few places and asked them about the phone, and I really hope they are wrong.

    They are probably talking about LTE phones, the Atrix 4G will most defiantly come way before then. If they are talking about the Atrix 4G then I don't think they know what they are talking about.

    I asked them about the Motorola Atrix and that was the response I received from each one.

    Exactly. HSPA+ 4G is ALREADY available.

    Putting out commercials during a playoff football game for a phone to be released in June doesn't add up

    @ScuroRaven
    The manager at my local authorized retailer (an old grade school friend of mine) told me yesterday that AT&T hasn't announced anything internally yet, but that he was informed "by the end of March" for the Atrix and the HTC Inspire, "someone later" for the Samsung whatever (coming from a Samsung, I an NOT interested in that one at all) and those were sent out the day of announcement at CES. He said he will email me when he finds out anything (he wants the Inspire), but that this whole thing looks like the Craptivate launch last summer- which points to about a month after announcement. I'm thinking mid-february for it...

    I should probably add that he said he never gets firm launch dates until the sales materials come in, about a week in advance or so, prior to that he gets date-ranges and approximations just telling him to make sure his staff is up-to-date on the features of the product...

    I agree, that is just like the Galaxy S series launch last summer, we are about a month out or so, unless they rush it due to the whole Verizon
    iPhone launch thing today...
  18. Just to reiterate as of what I know now its looking still as a Feb 5 launch for Atrix and a march 1st for Inspire late march to mid June for Infuse. I will check in probably next tuesday with my guys and see if anything has changed. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that if the iPhone 4 is official for everyone on Feb 10 there gonna bump the Atrix to last week of Jan

    Best Buy actually gets phones the same day or before carrier stores. The Evo Shift was released 1/6 to Reward Zone customers, 1/7 to everyone else and Sprint stores didn't sell them until 1/9.
  20. Um you just proved my point lol online to RZ customers then in stores then Carrier

    BUT, if there is a pre-order, it will be thru AT&T first. :)
  22. Thats not always guaranteed all depends on how and if best buy has a deal set up for the phone. Alot of the carriers/manufactures like the best buy scenario because you reach the most people in the shortest time

    As in the case of the Captivate. I pre-ordered from AT&T weeks before it was available anywhere. I don't know how they determine what phones they put up for pre-order.
  24. I dont know either but the EVO Shift 4G was available at BB before anywhere so it all depends on the arrangement i guess

    I've been told by a reliable source that it will be released for Tegra 2 Android devices only to start with.
