upgrade coming in a month, what to get on ATT
I love my nexus s so much but I am really tired of edge all the time. My upgrade is coming and I was thinking about a sense phone, but with all the dual core talk I am thinking about waiting for the HYC holiday or the LG thrill 3D. If anyone else has any suggestions or opinions that'd be awesome.

The Galaxy S2 Is Suppose To Be Coming To AT&T. I Bought An Atrix In March And I love This Phone. And When The Gingerbread Update Comes Netflix With Be Enabled In The Update (According To Breif Mobile's Video). But If I Didnt Waist My Upgrade On The Atrix I Would Have Waited For The Galaxy S2 Because My Atrix On It's Best Day Will Benchmark At 2700, And The Galaxy S2 Hits Over 3000.

i am not terribly familiar with what at&t carry but doing a quick glance, i would probably go with the infuse out of the current available phones. but really i would wait for the gs2, which is what i am doing on verizon right now... been eligible for upgrade for awhile now, i just can't justify upgrading for any of the current phones from my incredible, they just don't seem that much better and i'm not in a 4g area so it doesn't really matter.

I don't mean to hijack this thread, so I'll apologize in advance if that's the case.
I'm also looking to upgrade with AT&T, although I'm able to do it anytime I'd like. I'm currently using the iPhone 4 and I'm ready to take the plunge into Android. I'm able to get the Inspire for $49 w/ a 2-year contract. I've thought about jumping to VZW and the Thunderbolt, but from what I've been reading the Inspire and TB are the same, with the exception of FFC, kickstand, larger battery, and of course LTE. I get a decent rate with AT&T now, and the coverage is great, so I'd like to stick with them.
I've been hearing about the Holiday possibly coming to AT&T in the next few months (hopefully), but I'm kinda impatient when it comes to phones and technology in general.
Long story short; should I hop on the Inspire for $49 or wait out of the Holiday? I have no interest in any Samsung phones (personal preference) and I'm not digging the Thrill. Thanks for any advice, and sorry for being long-winded

I'd like to jump in this thread too.
My upgrade is available today, so I am in the same boat. I refuse to buy a Samsung phone (they f*cked me with the Moment, then they f*cked me again with the Galaxy S). What other phones are coming out for ATT? I feel silly wasting my upgrade on a phone that is (spec-wise) equivalent. I have no problem waiting a few months, if the phone is worth it. I'm tired of having to "hack" my phone just to get it to work as a phone. I recently got a Xoom and love it, I might end up getting an Atrix just because it is Motorola.

I was happy with my Captivate (on ATT) but got sick of waiting and it drove me to root and flash my first ROM. Now I've got my phone running even better than before and I love it.
It won't be a selling point for everyone, but the developer community for Samsung (especially Galaxy S line) is really strong and definitely something to consider if you are the "hacking" type. I'm excited to see what Cyanogen can do with the GS2. Awesome move by Samsung to give them a phone for free.

The Captivate Froyo update wasn't released until about a week or so after the Atrix was released. By that time it was too late; I had already picked up an Atrix and I never looked back. I still have the Captivate (my daughter uses it), and I updated to Froyo, but it still sucks compared to the Atrix. The Captivate has nicer color reproduction, but the Atrix kills it in every other performance metric. It is simply a better device.

So my impatience got to me, and I went and picked up the Inspire today. I'm very happy with the phone so far. I'm really digging Sense on the phone, as well as the freedom to put anything on any screen/page. Basically, I'm glad I'm free from the limits of iOS (although I still own an iPad, and that won't change :-)) Will I be bummed if/when the Holiday comes out? Probably. But for what I'm using the phone for now, I'll have no problem hanging onto the Inspire for a bit.

Comparing last years hot phone to a new duo core not so hot phone from this year isn't fare. Test your Atrix to a more comparable phone like the GSII and see whats faster.
Now did it suck that I was still sporting 2.1 when most phones were updating the 2.2? yes. Did I care? Not really I just rooted it and boom it had 2.2. I have to co-workers who have the Epic and I was the only 1 who had it.
Most of those 10+ GS phone owners Probably didn't care to much either since they kept selling. For Sammy , I think they are listening to the hacking community.
Anyway... glade you made a choice and enjoy the Inspire. My sister finally was able to pick hers up at Radio Shack when it was 29 bucks, She got the red one. And she loves it too.

I made a comment in the Holiday rumor thread that I'm really looking forward to the Holiday. Most of my friends are HTC users, (them what don't do fruit, LOL!), and my wife got an Inspire on my recommendation. She loves it, so far, though she is still bonding with it. I am a current BB Bold 9700 user, and looking forward mightily to going Android when my next upgrade comes in October. I started coming to AC to get a jumpstart on being android savvy, that, and talking to my friends who have them. If the Holiday has the hardware config they're talking about, I'm in. The one thing that hasn't shown up in the rumor mill is the amount of internal storage. I am seriously hoping it matches the Atrix and GS2 (16GB internal, 1GB RAM, 32GB microSD).
