Motorola and AT&T have officially given up on the Atrix HD handset which was launched just under three years ago. Although the smartphone was said to be getting Android 4.4 initially, the company backtracked on that promise and has now mentioned that users will not be seeing that update after all, meaning that the smartphone will be stuck on Jelly Bean till the end of its days.
However to make up for this, the company has cleverly decided to offer a $100 discount on the 2014 Moto X smartphone or the Motorola Whisper Bluetooth headset. The Atrix HD belongs to the generation of Motorola smartphones where software customization was still being considered. But after briefly going under Google’s wing, Motorola decided to go stock Android instead and it has reaped great rewards for the company.
The company is offering this $100 discount only on the Pure Edition Moto X, which starts at $499. This means that Atrix HD users can get the Pure Edition Moto X for as little as $399, which is an excellent deal considering that they own a nearly outdated handset. The Motorola Whisper on the other hand can be had for as little as $49.99 as it usually retails for $149.99. The discounts will be offered to the customers in the form of a coupon code.
Note that the Developer Edition Atrix HD is exempt from this promotion.
