AT&T rejects some Motorola Android handsets for being "out of date"
In an effort to gain some quick momentum on the back of the Android OS, Motorola planned on remaking some older, unknown Windows Mobile models and convert them to Android for AT&T. According to The Street and MKM Partners analyst Tero Kuittinen, the carrier rejected the handsets for being out of date. With the Schaumburg, Illinois based firm counting on their Android platform to lead it in a cellular comeback, the failure to sign up the nation's second largest cell carrier is a big negative.

As we reported, Motorola will have a major conference on September 10th at which time it is expected to announce deals with T-Mobile and Verizon to carry the two Android handsets that phone chief Sanjay Jha had promised to deliver for the holiday season for two unnamed carriers. The two models are apparently the sizzling hot Mototrola Sholes and the Morrison.
