I really like the atrix2 but the lack of an HD screen kinda irks me. I kinda feel like it isn't much of an upgrade over the OG. Only thing really stopping me from choosing the nitro 4 sure is the lack of an upgrade to ics announcement from att not lg. Hopefully something leaks out for the nitro by the 30th of march or ill just have to go with the safe purchase more than likely. If I wasn't so impatient I'd just wait for the Ion lol.

I forgot to mention the icons are extremely ugly.

I looked at both as well. Nitro had faster processor, HD display, LTE, and the better likelihood of ICS (hadn't been announced for Atrix 2 at the time of my purchase).

But sadly, as others have said, Nitro felt laggy to me when I played with it in the store. SGS II Skyrocket felt much snappier though didn't want it cause lack of HD screen.

Plus Nitro was ~ $200 and Atrix 2 was free! In the end I choose Atrix 2 and haven't regretted it yet! I haven't even done any modding to it - still in completely stock condition. Feels speedy; "4G" has been much better than my old Captivate for browsing, and although no HD screen, it is higher resolution than the typical Android - looks super crisp.

Plus battery life has been phenomenal! Both Skyrocket & Nitro have been blasted because of poor battery life. My Atrix 2 at the end of a 17-18 hour day is still at 60% plus.
