The Motorola ATRIX 3 has been approved by the Bluetooth SIG

In the U.S., the Motorola MB886 is the Mototola ATRIX 3 while elsewhere the phone will go by the Motorola Dinara moniker. It's hard to believe that we are already on the third iteration of the ATRIX series. It seems like just yesterday when Motorola rolled out the dual-core powered smartphone, calling it "the world's fastest smartphone," a statement that got ads for the device banned in the U.K. What got us thinking about the Motorola ATRIX 3/Dinara was the word that the handset had been approved by the Bluetooth SIG following a successful visit to the FCC.

The Motorola MB886 will feature a touchscreen with HD720p resolution with a Qualcomm dual-core S4  processor under the hood and 1GB of RAM aboard. The camera will be a major focus here with a 13MP sensor. There will also be a front-facing shooter so you can take self-portraits for the egotist in you, and enable video chats. The Motorola ATRIX 3 will also launch with Android 4.0 installed  and feature both LTE and HSPA+ connectivity. We should see this tagged at about $199.99 with a 2-year pact with a launch via AT&T as soon as next month.

Pack in the Razr Maxx battery and we're in business. I wonder if this is the Razr HD variant Verizon will be getting. Also, please be sure to have ICS pre-installed. It would be embarrassing to see another Gingerbread phone on a top-tier smartphone.

Well the Atrix 2 was probably the closest thing to the razr when it came out, so maybe the Atrix 3 will come out, then a few months or so later, a new Razr... aka Razr HD... or Razr 2. It's going to have ICS, no way Moto will do without it.

I wonder what the screen size will be? Motorola reception is usually quite good in rural areas. Looks like a substantial bezel. Will it be pure Android, or is Motoblur still a legacy from pre-Google Mototola?

Motoblur is now minimal on ICS. So it won't be that bad either way.

I think AT&T has a big advantage over Verizon in that even though there LTE Network is much smaller, There HSPA+ network is very large and being able to put both into a phone/tablet is a big advantage Where Verizon only has one 4G Network, LTE and where that isn't available Verizon Customers (like me) will have to resort to there slow Rev.A 3G

On the upside, Verizon's 3G is pretty much everywhere that they provide service and it's much better than EDGE. Its one of the reasons that I picked Verizon over AT&T. Also, 700kbps isn't that slow, its good enough for me to stream Pandora while driving around in areas without LTE.

Mbs per square foot of coverage, At&t is far and above every other carrier. Too bad they got rid of unlimited data, they could do some serious contract numbers with a cheap unlimited data plan. They should want to bring new customers in, and bring old customers back at the same time, too bad they see short term profits over long term profits.

should've done some battery optimization. Like the Droid Razr Maxx. Then it would be interesting.

I really hope, the phone supports, the New Ti-omap, instead.
