I would trade AT&T for the option to get some of the phones that other carriers get. RIght now ATT has the Captivate or the Streak as your only serious Android choices.
Having the Droid, Droid X, or the Bionic would be SOOOOO much nicer. In fact the Inspire is just a retuned HTC Evo, isn't it? What ... six months after the rest of the world gets an EVO, we finally get it on ATT?
I'm happy to see the Atrix come to ATT shelves. It is good for us. I'm on a STREAK and loving it, but seeing more flagship Android devices on ATT is only a good thing.

Besides, without HSPA and GSM, it will be useless as a roaming device for the foreseeable future.
They probably could have added the right radios for less than $25, but of course that would have threatened the planned obsolescence of this phone.

I have no problems with it. Looks like Verizon's answer to the Evo. Nothing ground breaking but a great device for Verizon to have for those who like the Evo. Where the Bionic looks like a device to compete with the iPhones front facing camera.
Seems like smart moves by Verizon to me.... They now have two phones that compare to Sprints and AT&T's best selling phones.

Oh, and no world phones in their new lineup (while AT&T's and TMo's are inherently roaming-capable). Stupid, stupid, stupid.

And the roaming isn't really a big deal at all. They have business-oriented handsets available already, and for the rest (the majority) shouldn't really care about roaming a whole lot.

No way it will happen in the near future because of the varying wireless standards and frequencies between the carriers. And if someone like Samsung came out with a Galaxy 2 which was identical in all respects except for the onboard radios, and sold at Best Buy, etc., most if not all carriers would not let it on their networks.
