I own the Atrix and have modded the heck out of it. I'm VERY happy with it (i'm itching to upgrade it though, i'm not an OCN'er for nothing tongue.gif), the only downside so far is the lack of ICS, but we have been promised by Motorola to get it "sometime" on Q3 2012. Either way, i'm not holding my breath. With dual boot, i can game all i want on Gingerbread and do daily stuff on Jelly Bean. Plus, Having one of the few (if not the only) phone with a fingerprint reader is a big plus (i get my hand in my pocket, press the unlock button, swipe my finger and 70-80% of the time while i get it out of my pocket i'll have the screen unlocked when i'm looking at it)

I am not sure of Venezuela prices (i see the Atrix for $200 on Amazon though), but other phones you might want to look with a Tegra 2 at are these:

- Motorola Photon (Same as Atrix, slightly bigger screen and better camera, also rumored to officially get ICS on Q4 2012)
- Samsung Galaxy R (You trade bigger screen for a smaller battery and no HDMI port, but it is thinner and lighter than any other phone. Samsung has officially released ICS recently for this one too)
- Samsung Captivate Glide (Has physical keyboard if you roll that way but it has less internal storage. Not sure of official ICS availability)
- LG Optimus 2x (Slightly worse screen quality, better camera and half storage and RAM. Not sure of official ICS availability)

I can have an idea. Claro in El Salvador brought the Atrix like 4 months ago, with a price tag of US$725. I'm glad i bought the Atrix for far less. Thank goodness for family in the US who travels back once a year.

It is an amazing phone though. I still have not found any application which it cannot run, including some high-end games (Nova 3, Dead Space, GTA III) and i doubt it will run out of steam anytime soon. Plus, you can always overclock it with the right kernel biggrin.gif
