A meeting went down over the weekend at Best Buy, and a big point of discussion was the impending launch of the Motorola Atrix 4G on AT&T. While little solid info came to light concerning the final release strategy for the new 4G HSPA+ handset, a few details were gleaned. The biggest of which is that the Atrix will be arriving in Best Buy’s warehouses right around February 13th, though the actual release date is unknown. Considering that Best Buy employees are already beginning training, we’d imagine the device will be on shelves not too far after the 13th.

Another bit of information gleaned from the meetings concerns the Atrix’s keyboard dock. The accessory that will transform the phone into a [almost] full-fledged netbook is said to retail for $150. That seems a fair price, if not $25-$50 too expensive for a piece of hardware consisting of a screen, keyboard, and extended battery alone. All other internals and software are beamed directly in from the Atrix itself. But for $150, we’ll take it.
