Keep in mind that the dual-core 1.2 Ghz Snapdragons won't be faster than the 1 Ghz Tegra2s. The CortexA9s (CPUs used in the Tegras) support out-of-order execution and faster FPU instructions so their IPC will be somewhat higher than older CortexA8 and Scorpion cores. Also, IIRC the Tegras are fabbed on a 40nm process while the Snapdragons are 45nm, so they have an added efficiency advantage.

I have to laugh at the issue over wondering if your phone will be "future proof". There is no such thing. Any phone will be outdated within 6-12 months of purchase. The question is if you like the phone and want to buy it now. If you get it now...you will have the best phone available for some time...then you just ride out your two year contract while you wait for the next greatest thing to come out.
I plan on getting the phone with the vehicle, charging and HD Media dock. I was going to get the laptop dock...but not for $300.00 (after rebate) and with the required tethering plan. AT&T lost that bit of business on me.
Here's hoping that the phone ships sooner than the 6th!

So, I've already signed up for my MotoBlur account and I'm on the mailing list to be notified when the OtterBox Commute case is released for this phone. I'm contemplating the Invisishield (which they don't even show as coming soon).
Does anyone know for certain if the Atrix will have gorilla glass? Even with GG do y'all still use a screen protector? My N1 stays in my pocket all the time but separate from my keys/change/tiny woodland creatures and I still have the Invisishield on it. I just don't like the little bit of glare (or whatever you want to call it) that these things add to the phone.
And I know this has been discussed 6 million times...but what does it hurt to discuss it 6 million and 1?

Yes, Atrix will have gorilla glass. Yes having a screen protector would help you more.
Phones today will have glare regardless of having a screen protector or not, so unless you get the anti-glare ones (which then make looking at any pictures/videos on your phone less than desirable), just get used to it.

Motorola did their design on this phone a little different. Most phone have GG then an air gap and then the digitizer to help reduce wear and tear on the digitizer but that air gap is what causes such bad glare in sunlight. On the ATRIX they took out the air gap and say that it wont wear down the digitizer but will in turn offer a brighter screen and clarity and should look great out in the sun.
I always put screen protectors on my phones out of habit and worry, but with this phone I would say try it in the sun and if there is no glare then just use the clear one that usually comes with otterbox commuter cases. if there is glare then at&t is carrying a two pack of anti-glare anti-fingerprint screen protectors.
