Motorola Edison meets the FCC; device could be AT&T's DROID BIONIC sans LTE
Considering the inventions that he has contributed to the world, it is no surprise that someone would name a phone after Thomas Edison. The MB865, also known as the Motorola Edison, has just come from visiting the FCC. The device is said to be the follow-up to the Motorola ATRIX 4G, and is apparently the Motorola DROID BIONIC equivalent for AT&T.

There is one major difference between the Verizon sold Motorola DROID BIONIC and the AT&T bound Motorola Edison. The former has support for Verizon's 4G LTE network while the latter showed no sign of being enabled for LTE in the FCC report. That is not surprising since the carrier only has 5 markets that currently support LTE as we reported. So, any 4G connectivity will be done over the carrier's HSPA+ pipeline.
