The Motorola MB886. aka the Motorola ATRIX 3 in the U.S. and the Motorola Dinera elsewhere, has recently visited the FCC. It is almost a cliche now, but just making the trip to the Feds doesn't mean that a launch is imminent, What it does mean is that the device has been cleared for a launch, whenever that might be. The radios on board included quad-band EDGE, 850/1900 HSPA+, and LTE. The dual-core Qualcomm S4 will probably be found under the hood and the screen will feature a HD 720p resolution. Android 4.0 will be running the show.

Was it just a year and a half ago that the Motorola ATRIX 4G was among the vanguard of handsets ushering in the dual-core era? It's hard to believe that a device called "The world's most powerful smartphone," would be considered a mid-range product after such a short period of time. The rest of the specs for the MB886 include 1GB of RAM and a 13MP camera. It's the latter that has everyone excited, but with quad-core handsets already available, one thing we know for sure is that AT&T and Motorola won't be marketing the ATRIX 3 as the most powerful smartphone on the planet.

Cool. This generally means the phone is less than six weeks away from launching. lol

good, good, this probably means that the Droid Razr HD isn't too far behind either. o:

It doesn't bring anything new to the table. Motorola's going to leave it hanging after a few months.

I shouldn't even bother trying to have a reasonable discussion with you, but I'll try. What do you mean by "leave it hanging?"

9. Mxyzptlk unregistered

You and reasonable discussion should never be in the same sentence. Just look at Motorola's past devices. That will explain what I meant.

No thanks Atrix 3 looks ugly. I'm buying the SONY ion next sunday. I'm done with Motorola while they give their RAZRS ONLY TO VERIZON. And they didn't mention the battery life

oh well, poor you. this'll come out with a 3300mAh battery and you'll have buyer's remorse. xD

Not even sure what battery life this phone will have

I can sort of understand why you'd stay away from Motorola, but a Sony phone? Really? I don't think they've made a decent phone for the US in years
