Version of Droid Bionic heading to AT&T?

Version of Droid Bionic heading to AT&T?
What’s this? According to a very vague screenshot the Motorola MB865, which is the same model number attached to Verizon’s upcoming Droid Bionic, may be heading to AT&T sometime in the future.

Further research will show you that Verizon tends to use “XT” for many of their device’s model numbers while “MB” is what AT&T tends to resort to. The Motorola XT865 is the model number for the Droid Bionic that will soon be hitting Verizon Wireless in the coming weeks.

The screenshot also shows the Motorola MB860, which is the model number for AT&T’s Motorola Atrix 4G. If this screenshot is to be believed, than the version of the Droid Bionic bound for AT&T may be packing the latest version of Motorola’s Blur user interface.

As stated, this screenshot is as vague as it gets. However, the possibility of a Droid Bionic variation heading to AT&T should bring excitement to anybody who is up for renewal of their contract in the next few months.

If this ends up being true, this handset could very well be LTE-capable considering that the nation’s second largest carrier plans on lighting up the speedy 4G network in some cities throughout the rest of the year. Tell us what you think in the comments below.

Random fact: if you are in US (specialy Verizon) then Motorola will deliver a better experience than samsumg. Now overseas (mostly europe ) samsumg is giving a much better performance overall

Which isn't saying much since Android experience is far inferior to iPhone experience. Fact.

You make iphome fans look like idiots thanks for trying

After experiencing the Iphone 4 and the OG Droid I could not disagree more. The Apple hardware is beautiful, and the apps function well on the hardware. The phone reception stunk. I dropped more calls in a week than I did in an entire year on Verizon. Additionally I found the Iphone to be way to limiting an the apps to be way too expensive. Yes Apples App store has more apps, but I don't need another game.

If anything, this would just be an updated version of the Atrix; considering that the Atrix, Photon, and Bionic all have basically the same specs and abilities except that the Atrix and Photon both have an NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor but we've yet to learn what the bionic will have.

the Bionic will most likely have a TI OMAP4430 Dual-Core 1GHz processor same as the Droid 3.

I don't think the letter system has anything to do with carrier. The Droid 3 is the XT862 and the Milestone 3 is the XT860. The Droid X was the MB810 and the Droid X2 is the MB870, while the Bionic is the XT875. The Atrix is the MB860, so who knows what the MB865 is.

If the Atrix has it's Gingerbread update, why would you pay for another high end Motorola? Even if it is LTE, AT&T will have quite a while to get it that up and running on it's network.

What ATT needs to do is release the HTC HOLIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This logic doesn't work at all. The Verizon Droid X was MB810, so obviously MB is not exclusive to AT&T.

Perhaps this will be the dinara? I can't see the dinara going to verizon so shortly after the bionic comes out, honestly, especially if they look very similar.
