Motorola Olympus Android phone heads to AT&T with dual-core processor
The last time we reported about the Motorola Olympus, we wrote about how the devcice would be powered by a dual-core Tegra 2 processor and would feature a 4 inch or 4.1 inch display with greater resolution than what the Schaumburg based firm had been using on its latest  high-end models. We also pointed to a Q1 release for AT&T.

Today, the guys at Android and Me received some info about the device in the form of a mini-dump. We see the phone is indeed called the Motorola Olympus MB860 and is currently in pre-production. As expected, it will be powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip set and is heading for AT&T. It is currently running using Android 2.2.1 with a version of Motoblur on the handset.

The Wall Street Journal was recently told by MKM partners that the Motorola Olympus would launch the last week of January and it is possible that it will have Android 2.3 on board. There is also a shot that this unit will find its way around other carriers besides AT&T and could be Verizon's first LTE handset.

While a picture of this studly sounding device would clinch the deal right now, enough information seems to confirm previous reports to get us excited that such an animal exists.

Looks pretty nice, but im on Verizon and im honestly waiting for the Mecha. I love my X, but I also loved my Incredible when I had it. I have been craving another HTC device, so the Mecha is likely what I will be getting (as long as the specs are what I want).
