Motorola Sends Out “Confidential” Email To Atrix 4G Owners, Soak Test On The Way


Well what do we have here? It looks like Motorola has some plans for its Atrix 4G smartphone. Owners of the device who participate in the surveys and soak tests received this email late last night:

“Hi ATRIX 4G user!

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 update on your AT&T ATRIX 4G. Please fill out the following survey( https://________ ) 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 will end at 8pm 01/30/12 Central time or when 1000 valid responses are received. If you don’t intend to actively participate please do not sign up for this opportunity.

Do not forward this communication to other parties(websites, individuals, etc), as you will lose your spot. As part of your original 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. Users not selected will not be notified. Do not email or PM me asking if you are accepted or when it will start as we may elect to remove you from the opportunity.

In the mean time, please log in to the new community. If you haven’t logged in since the move you’ll need to do a password reset in order regain access using the email account “______” as username is only used as a Forums Display Name on the new site.

Whenever we see these “confidential emails”, it usually indicates two things: a minor update or a major update. Considering the Atrix 4G has the same internals as a certain tablet that was just upgraded to ICS recently, we’re hoping this is the beginning of what will be a major update for the device. We will be sure to keep our eyes and ears opened for any further developments regarding this Atrix 4G story. Stay tuned with Talk Android for further details folks!
