Well there you have it folks, we told you the Motorola Atrix was coming to Telstra along the Motorola XOOM. Today the announcement was made by Telstra that the Atrix will launch on June 7th and XOOM on May 24th for $840/ea, which is $110 more than the $730 asking price for the Atrix over at MobiCity.
The XOOM, which is surprisingly heavy, will be of the 3G and Wi-Fi variants which is always nice. Having played with one a few weeks ago I was very impressed with it, it’s well-built with very little plastic used in comparison to the Gal Tab 10.1v. Telstra have also said the MicroSD card slot will not be utilised until after a Honeycomb update; the same thing is happening in the US. There will also be no hardware update to LTE. Our review will be up in the next week or so. Hit the source link to register your interest in the Motorola XOOM on Telstra.
I’ve been using the Atrix as my primary phone for the past month and I hate it with a passion, but that’s not to say you won’t like it, but for $840 I’d be running in the other direction. The best thing about Telstra is you can go into their stores and try the devices out before you actually hand over your hard-earned dollars. Hit the break for a picture of the available plans for each of the devices.
