Motorola Atrix 3 Release Date Appears Close
A device thought to be the upcoming Motorola Atrix 3 for AT&T has surfaced today at the FCC, passing through with flying colors.
The device’s FCC filing, first reported by Engadget, reveals little about the device that we don’t already know. Specifically, that it is going to sport 4G LTE radios for use with AT&T’s 4G LTE network.
It also reveals the Motorola Atrix 3’s MB886 name, a name similar to the model numbers of both the original Motorola Atrix and the Motorola Atrix 2.
The FCC filing doesn’t reveal a release date for the Motorola Atrix 3 but we can assume that an announcement is on the horizon given that it has passed through the governments hands.
Details about the device’s specifications remain scarce but it appears that it will be AT&T’s version of the Motorola Droid RAZR HD. It will for sure feature 4G LTE connectivity but it will also have a 720p HD display and it apparently has Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on board as well.
The device has leaked out in a press image and it appears that it will have MotoBlur over Android as well.
That same image lists July 26th as the date which could potentially mean that the phone will be launching during the month of July. There hasn’t been anything that corroborates that date, so circle in pencil on the calendar at this point.
AT&T has started making its 4G LTE devices affordable and we expect the pricing of the Atrix 3 to be no different. The Motorola Atrix 2 had a solid $99.99 price point and that could be the same price that the Motorola Atrix 3 checks in with.
And now that it has passed through the FCC, we should know for sure sooner rather than later.
We’ll keep an eye out.

Is there really any indication that this phone would be a $99 device? I know that the last generation – Vivid and Nitro HD prices are in the toilet right now, but without having a shred of info on processors, memory, storage, or screen size, it seems a real stretch that the HTC’s and Samsungs of the world come in at $199 and this one at $99?? Really???

yea theres no way that a phone of this calibur would debut at such a low price, especially since its rumored to be such a monumental device, for overshadowing the capabilities of its ancestors, the Atrix 4g and the Atrix 2. i currently own both of those and as i am impatiently waiting for them to stop dragging the release date for ICS, i am also watching intently for the release date for the Atrix 3, which will be on my list of must-haves…
also, am very curious as to how motorola will upgrade the next lapdock and increase the experience, since in my opinion, the sleekness of the atrix lapdock lost “flavor” and got wierd with the lapdock 100… never owned the 500 series but i’d say new generation phone, ne generation accesories to accentuate the new generation features… dont you agree?

Me myself hope this version will have TRUE HD qualities..I now currently own the Atrix 2 & I’m very disappointed in the so-called HD resolution. Not very vivid for the most part. Come on Motorola, step it up for you’re buyers!!
