    Yeah, but it doesn't have a true 4G network

    The Atrix will be using HSPA+ on AT&T's network. Technically, that isn't 4G. At best, you could really only call it 3.5G. AT&T will come out with a true 4g network, LTE, later at the end of this year. The phones coming out then that take advantage of LTE will blow away the Atrix.

    About the Bravo...

    Release date? HTC's roadmap indicates an April 2010 release date for this. However, Engadget says that the Bravo will be released early in the USA, possibly January 2010 (ie: soon). I don't think it is coming out this month as has been rumored. Engadget is consistently wrong about these...
