Moto X to feature a dual LTE MIMO antenna, making it LTE-Advanced capable

Self-proclaimed leakster-in-the-know, Taylor Wimberly, held a Q&A session on his Google+ profile yesterday, claiming he has most of the details. Back with another spicy detail, a few hours ago Wimberly yet again posted on his page, suggesting that the highly anticipated Moto X may feature “a dual LTE Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) Smart Antenna.”
Cracking on the tech lingo, what this means in practice is that the upcoming Motorola device is set to release with two LTE-capable antennas that can receive and send data at the same time, resulting in faster data exchange. As a commentator put it “It's like getting on a 4 lane highway from a 2 lane highway.” What's more interesting is that MIMO is one of the main device-side requirements of the LTE-Advanced standard.
As always, you should take any such rumors with a grain of salt.

I was under the impression that the MIMO capability is what switched LTE to LTE Advanced, or is there more to it than that?

Technically speaking, MIMO is only one of a list of requirements needed to be met to satisfy the LTE-Advanced standard. However, most of these are carrier-side, meaning the Moto X may indeed arrive LTE-Advanced-capable. :)

What about the increased RF radiation?
