Motorola Atrix now available from Bell in Canada
Just as we expected, the HTC ThunderBolt for Verizon isn’t the only phone launching today. Up North in Canada, Bell has started selling the Motorola Atrix, the dual-core Android smartphone launched by AT&T in the US.
Also just as expected, an Atrix on Bell will set you back $169.95 if you opt to sign a new three-year contract. As usual with Canadian carriers, that’s by far the best deal, if you’re willing to be tied to Bell for three years. The phone is offered with two-year and one-year contracts as well, but those are hardly good deals considering that the price of the phone sans contract is $599.95. If you get a one-year contract, the Atrix can be yours for $574.95. If you go with a two-year contract, the handset will cost $549.95.
Regardless of the contract length you choose, you’ll have to get a smartphone monthly plan, that’s at least $50 each month.
In case you forgot, the Motorola Atrix runs Android 2.2 Froyo (with an upgrade to Android 2.3 Gingerbread promised, but for now it’s unclear when that will happen). It has a 4-inch qHD (960×540) capacitive touchscreen, 1 GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, a 1930 mAh battery, 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, a VGA front-facing camera, and a biometric fingerprint reader. It comes with 16 GB of internal memory, which is expandable even further via a microSD card slot. All the usual connectivity features, such as Wi-Fi, 3G, and Bluetooth are of course also present.
