Head Back to School in Style with the Motorola ATRIX HD Smartphone + $100 Giveaway!

by Marcy on August 8, 2012 · 158 comments

With back to school looming on the horizon, you might be in the market for a new smartphone – either for yourself or for your kids. Chances are good that you are also on a back to school budget, and the newest Motorala smartphone – the ATRIX HD – might be the perfect solution for you!

The Motorola ATRIX HD makes it easy to multitask all day long with it’s dual-core processor, allowing you to get more done so that you won’t have to miss all of those after school activities that keep you and your family hopping! Another cool feature, the SMARTACTIONS™ app, helps your phone to conserve battery power – something that is super important if you rely on your smartphone as much as I do!

If you feel like you are passing your kids in the hallway, use the Motorola ATRIX HD to set up a Google Hangout video chat and catch up with them “face to face”. :-) Or use the front facing camera to take pictures of your family to post on Google+ – easily I might add, because the ATRIX HD automatically uploads photos for easy saving and sharing.

In addition to performing well, the ATRIX HD is super thin with a Kevlar shell – which means it is strong and built to last. If you drop your phone as often as I do, you’ll appreciate this feature!

Learn more about the ATRIX HD – including all of the awesome features and specs and where to buy on the Motorola website.

Best of all, the Motorola ATRIX HD is priced at just $99 (through AT&T with a 2 year contract) – compared to $199 for similar smartphones on the market. Just imagine what you could buy with that extra $100!

Actually, one lucky winner is going get to do just that, because Motorola has given me a $100 AMEX gift card and a Rebecca Minkoff wallet to giveaway to one of you!

What am I giving away?

For someone who still uses Gregg Shorthand (albeit for personal use) a keyboard is a must. Oh if only the phones had a roller ball too!

I love pretty much everything or at least a lot of the functions of my smartphone. Email and Internet. Calculater at rhe grocery store. Gps for keeping on track I am always lost :). Calendar for all my med appointments. Easier to note what I consider drawbacks w/my smartphone. Can’t print my coupons. For whatever reason on an android I cannot post a message here at stretching a buck. Facebook does not work for many functions Like contests or freebies. Still like the all in one (camera, calculated, calendar, Internet, gps, etc)
