The Motorola Atrix HD — now that’s a name we’ve not heard in a long time. The Atrix HD launched back in July 2012 on AT&T, coming out of the box running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It wasn’t too long after that it received an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Motorola at some promising a future update to Android 4.4. KitKat. That’s a lot of software support.
Fast forward to today where — nearly 3 years after the phone launched — Motorola is finally ready to throw in the towel. Yes, folks. The sun setting on the ‘ol Atrix HD. According to Motorola, they, along with AT&T, just wont be able to fulfill their promise to update the device to KitKat, although they didn’t mention what exactly was the reasons behind the failed update.
But, in an effort to make amends, Motorola is offering Atrix HD owners a discount on a brand new Motorola Moto X 2014 (2nd Gen). Anyone who registers on Motorola’s page here will get a Pure Edition (AT&T and T-Mobile compatible) for $300 — that’s $100 off. If the Atrix HD is till suiting you just fine, they’re also offering up the Motorola Whisper for $50, regularly $150.
Motorola says your Atrix HD must have an active phone number in order to be eligible for the promotion. Keep in mind that the offer expires June 30th, so you have a few weeks to take advantage of this deal. Once the form has been filled out, you’ll need to use the promo code/coupon by July 15th. Seriously though, anyone out there still using this as their daily driver?
