View Poll Results: What is you choice?
- 120. You may not vote on this poll
Atrix (just the phone)
Atrix with LapDock ($499 with required tethering plan)
Atrix with Entertainment Experience package ($190)
Atrix for now.....with docks purchase much later (when cheaper)
Inspire 4G ($99)
New Poll: What will you buy now (with the confirmed prices)?
If I was getting this on Day One, I'd personally just grab the phone.
But more than likely, I'll be waiting at least a few weeks after release in the hopes that the pricing goes down so I can grab it cheaper with the docks.

Charging that much for a "shell" is ridiculous, and you are essentially just using the phone with an attached keyboard/screen so the tethering fee is also absurd. I was going to stick with AT&T because of this phone, but now since I may be looking at a different device, I will be looking at phones coming out on all carriers.

I'm still sticking with the Atrix for the battery life. Sadly no other Android with a big screen can handle a full day away from a charger for me. I'll prolly pickup the multimedia and/or car dock depending on prices and hold out for the laptop dock to drop about $200+ dollars and not require the ridiculous tethering plan.
And, the phone itself costs $199 with 2 year contract, so it's not THAT expensive and actually coincides with previous high end smartphone prices, even more so when compared to Verizon's upcoming $249 Thunderbolt.

i was ready to buy the laptop dock and the phone but not if i need a tethering plan id use it mostly on wifi just around my house anyways so i might pick up the atrix or the inspire 4g thats a huge bummer though
if i can buy the dock without tethering off contract then ill consider it.

Presently, I'm still thinking of buying the phone, but not quite as sold now. I never intended to buy the laptop dock. I only wanted a multimedia dock. I don't want the wireless keyboard or mouse. I don't see a price for the multimedia dock alone.
Clearly, they are saying if you buy the laptop dock, you'll have to buy a tethering plan. Further down there's a line that says
"3. Laptop Dock - Firefox browser use with AT&T Mobile Broadband requires Tethering Plan."
It's not clear to me whether they will force tethering prices if I run Webtop on the multimedia dock. If so, it's not worth it for me to buy the multimedia dock and I'll seriously consider another phone.

Im actually in a crazy situation, recently I was left with no phone for 3 weeks trying to decide if I wanted to go with the Evo or wait. I end up ordering the Evo. I get the phone today and amazon wireless tells me that I have to ship it back and all this other nonsense about me not getting the phone until monday because of an ESN mistake. So should I just not go with sprint and order the Atrix now that its price are confirmed?

Screw that. It should've been priced at $250 total and no tethering. Ok, $300 tops. We're not talking about a phone and netbook. A phone and a screen and keyboard is all we're saying. I'm sure I can buy an 11" LCD screen for less than $100. Keyboards are dirt cheap. Tethering is just a scam anyway...like text messaging charges. Especially when they cap your data. You should be able to use your data however you see fit. Unlimited is a little different, but not by much.

I think I originally voted "just atrix", but I'm starting to lean toward the inspire. I'll have actually hold and play with it before I decide. If not the Inspire...well, I can't say what my 3rd option is...at least not on an Android forum_____________________

Why do none of these polls include the car dock?! I will be getting the car dock and the charging dock at first. The phone is still awesome...but AT&T is crazy if they think people are going to jump at the chance to pay such high prices to have the laptop dock.
