Motorola Atrix 4G to launch by end of February, 3G Xoom by March, Bionic and LTE Xoom coming in Q2

Motorola Mobility just held their first earnings call and company CEO Sanjay Jha just updated the timelines for their upcoming product launches. The Motorola Atrix 4G will be coming to AT&T by the end of February, the 3G version of the Xoom tablet could land on Verizon by February (but March is more likely), and the LTE Xoom and Droid Bionic will appear on Verizon sometime in Q2.

It was previously reported that the 3G Xoom tablet was hardware upgradeable to 4G LTE, so I’m not sure why two different dates were given. Maybe Sanjay was just referring to when the LTE upgrade might be publicly available.

Jha also said that he sees additional tablet sizes coming in the near future. Motorola could eventually release “multiple different display sizes and price points.” In reference to the Atrix 4G he said that “you will see our diversity in the retail channel as well with other carriers in the US” hinting that we could see their flagship phone on more carriers after AT&T’s exclusive deal ends.

Now the countdown to the “end of February” begins. Gimmie dat Atrix 4G!

    This proves Verizon only cares about crapple.

    Is that fiscal or calendar year?

    This proves Verizon only cares about crapple. If Verizon wasn’t so worried about whoring out crapple, then they’d launch the Android beast at the same time. They obviously want to boost up their new whores sales numbers as they’ve dropped Motorola and Android like a used condom.

    T-Mobile AWS Atrix 4G in the future! : )

    Although I would love to see it on T-Mobile, I highly doubt they’re concerned with high end phones right now. Just review their previous press release where they’ve said they’re only focusing on bringing more affordable smart phones to consumers. That means cheap phones and most likely very few if any high end ones.

    • Galen20K

      they also said they’re not going to ignore the High end phones, they’re still going to offer them they’re just going to not advertise them as much as the Mid-Range ones because they know the average consumer(not us) will buy the mid end more. But they definitely are offering a good number of High End phones this year as well.

      not concerned with high end phones? why is the MT4G so highly rated? Name 1 current phone on VZW that has 4G speeds, dual cameras, etc..

    bigmerf, you must have read my post on phandroid. I will post here as well for those that didn’t know what you are refering to in your comments above.

    “I will give everyone my interpretation of the US cellular companies and their cell phone providers relationship:

    It is like I said before, it is like a pimp (cell phone provider) and a whore (cell phone company). The cell phone providers such as Verizon pimp out their whores such as Motorola or the Crapple I-Crap to make themselves money. They do this in the best method possible to increase revenue.

    At first, Verizon was againts Crapple’s I-Crap and started the “Droid Does” campaign. They made tons of money with it and brought the spot light to their two biggest whores, HTC and Motorola. In turn, both of those companies took care of their pimp and gave Verizon their best phones.

    Now, Verizon has forgot about all of the smack they talked, and have brought the whore (I-Crap) from another company. They see her beauty and want to make tons of money thereby going back on their heavily funded previously mentioned campaign.

    Now that leaves Motorola looking for a new pimp (AT&T). Both AT&T know they need a new pimp/whore relationship as Verizon’s new whore (I-Crap) will enjoy the fruits of facking consumers on America’s largest f-over network. That is why you will not see the best Motorola has to offer right away on her old pimp’s network (Verizon).

    This can be said for many cell carrier/phone company relationships. That is why you see Sprint having so few devices and T-Mobile trying to make up for not having a showcase whore by having many low end street walkers.

    All in all, unless cell phone companies get off their butts and sell directly to us, we will continue to be used by their pimp/whore relationship status’.
    Come on Google! Start making us some phones! You’re our only hope!”

      Very well put.that’s why the nexus one didn’t sell much. even thou it is a good phone the carriers couldn’t dictate how it was sold. If more people seen it from that angle we would’ve had change by now. I really hope google puts out a dual core phone that’s also 4g soon on t mobile.

    I just wish the bionic would get half the love the atrix is going to get. I can’t jump carriers because someone else has the better product everytime.

    After unfortunately falling prey to the masses and finding myself being stuck with an iPhone and Apple I am ready to step up to Android. I read too much about the new devices coming out… I was sure I wanted the Captivate until I read how it was terribly buggy with an inoperable GPS at times and decided it was a no go. Now I am very intrigued by the Atrix. I suppose I will give it some time after it is released to see if it is worth using, but is Moto blur that bad? Will it really effect the usability of the device or as a new Android user will I not even notice any qwerks… As far as a carrier… I have ATT and it works well in my area, I’ve had them all and for good or bad ATT is the only one that works for me 
