A smartphone deal like this doesn't happen often. AT&T is selling the Motorola Atrix HD for just 99 cents with a new two-year contract as part of its Cyber Monday promotion.

Sure you may say the Atrix HD isn't all that new, but the phone isn't very old, either. Heck, the handset made its debut this summer, which, no matter how you slice it, wasn't a very long time ago. But what kind of device will a dollar bill net you? A pretty good, one judging from the 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, big 4.5-LCD screen, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

Even better, Motorola began to roll out an official update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for the Atrix HD in November. Coupled with Motorola's distinctive and useful UI enhancements, the Atrix HD is a very capable device and a steal at this price. This phone isn't perfect, though, with the Atrix HD's 8-megapixel camera its biggest weakness. It struggles under low light and snaps soft images that won't impress serious shutterbugs. The Atrix HD also isn't ultrathin, and battery life on the short side.

Take a look at AT&T's site to learn more. Be sure to consider the HTC One X, too, which AT&T is offering today for 99 cents as well.
