    During a company earnings call for Motorola, CEO Sanjay Jha just announced that the Atrix for AT&T and the 3G Xoom for Verizon will arrive at "the end of February". He also indicated that the LTE-enabled Droid BIONIC and LTE Xoom will arrive at "the end of the second quarter" as previously promised. According to the original source of this story, Engadget,
    Apparently, Christmas is coming in spring of this year. You guys getting antsy for this stuff too?

    Why is it that the Cliq 2 is advertised as having MotoBlur, but none of the other devices there are?

    I'm not a fool and I won't be jealous... I'm plan on getting a xoom too... (depending on the price of the tablet.)

    I am also looking for this, but not with 3g...3g is pointless to me when I am almost always around a router... not to mention I can just wireless tether more droid to the XOOM for 3g...

    Definately wont be paying for the 3g version, ill just wait till the wifi version comes out.

    PLEASE just stop with this crap. Better specs than the very top tier iPad and that's selling just fine.

    Keep in mind like I just said I plan on getting this assuming the wifi versions comes to the us and is cheaper... But I have to disagree with your statement

    But this point is not crap. It being more expensive is a VERY valid point to be made. A and of course it has better specs, the IPAD was launched almost a year ago, and technology has come a good way since then.

    Not to mention that the IPAD 2 is on its way, and if it is around the same price as the original ipad, I have no doubt it will do better then the xoom. Apples fanbase and products are not something to be taken lightly.

    with all the 4g phones coming out. i'm wondering about a couple of things.

    - will there still be high end 3g phones or will there be all 4g ?
    - that means we all have to get a 4g plan? $40+ a month most likely

    i can't see how they can make you get a 4g plan if they don't offer 4g in your area. Kinda like when vcast came out. It was an option for extra a month.

    Why is Atrix under AT&T? I think it would be better to have it under Verizon.
