We've been waiting for this day since the end of CES 2011, and now AT&T has come clean as to when we can expect the Motorola Atrix 4G for sale and for how much.

Previously rumored to be released on March 1, the Atrix 4G will actually hit shelves on March 6. But the pre-sale commences on February 13 - that magic day when the HTC Inspire 4G will be released and the Mobile Hotspot app will be ready.

Pricing isn't much of a surprise. The Android 2.2-based smartphone will cost $199.99 with the signing of a two-year service agreement. Buyers also have a Laptop Dock bundle option, which would ring up a grand total of $499.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate and require picking up Data Pro and tethering plans.

And remember that multimedia dock we saw before? Consumers can nab one of those as part of the Entertainment Access Kit, which includes the dock, a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, and a remote control for $189.99.

Until then, you can flip through our hands-on gallery of the Atrix 4G and check out a snapshot look from CES 2011.
