Motorola Atrix 4G Gingerbread update now rolling out

The Motorola Atrix 4G: was it a phone that should have come with Android 2.3 included? You bet. But now, thankfully, Moto is ready to address the problem. Select users are claiming to be getting an email from Big M that they’re ready to start beta testing Gingerbread on the Atrix, and wanting people to sign up for said beta.\The email states:

You’re receiving this email because you’ve filled out a Motorola Feedback Network survey in the past stating your interest in ATRIX 4G feedback opportunities. As a Motorola Feedback Network member you get advanced notice, like this, of such activities.

We’re getting ready to have a pre-release for Gingerbread (Android 2.3.X) on your AT&T ATRIX 4G. Please fill out the following survey to confirm your interest in this soak opportunity. The first 1,000 applicants will be picked on a first come, first serve basis, provided information is correctly filled out. I know there are some questions that are a repeat, sorry, but there is a reason for that. Please fill it out carefully, honestly and accurately as misinformation can cause this exercise to be unsuccessful. You can edit your survey from the same computer until the survey period closes, though it is advisable to fill it out the first time correctly. Duplicates will be excluded with the newer one used.. Secondly, once the survey period closes we’ll not be able to update your IMEI. Consider carefully before exchanging your device. .

This survey period tentatively ends at 9am 7/18/11 Central time, provided all spots are filled.

In fairness to other Motorola Feedback Network members, do not forward this communication to other parties (websites, individuals, etc). As part of your MFN survey you agreed to keep all MFN activities and notifications confidential. If we find that you have breached this agreement we may elect to remove you. You can always encourage users to sign up for the Motorola Feedback Network so they can be considered for feedback opportunities in the future.

If accepted, you will receive additional notifications via this email when the soak test activities will begin. Do not email or PM me asking if you are accepted or when it will start as I may elect to remove you from the opportunity.

Thanks again for your interest.

In other words, even if you don’t get this particular invite, chances are you’ll be seeing the 2.3 update for your Atrix soon enough. Be sure to sound off with your comments !

    this is the soak for the people who signed up for it, not the OTA for everyone.The title of the post is mis-leading, there is difference between soak test and OTA

    I got the email informing me of the pre-soak, but this would’ve been better news to me back in may. I sold my atrix two months ago do to locked bootloader and lack of gingerbread. And also just lack of interest from moto and at&t in their “flagship” , what a waste of a great phone.
