So everyone is familiar with the rumors of the Dual Core Tegra 2 phone to be released by Motorola Q1 2011. Well as promised some new info is coming in on this monster.
According to Androidandme the device will be released across multiple carriers and may be VZW's first LTE device. We do have some not so good news to report though. According to the article VZW may not be the first to release the device. Why? Well if it stands true, I would have to agree with Androidandme, the most logical explanation would be because of the roll out of the LTE network. What other plausible reason would there be for holding back it's release? Personally I cannot think of any. This beast is deserving of LTE speeds and it could prove to be a smashing hit on VZW's network.
The article also says that the reason this is going to be kept under wraps is not only because they don't want it to hurt potential sales of their just revealed devices but because this is "Sanjay's baby." As some of you may or may not know Sanjay Jha will take over as CEO for Motorola Mobility and this device will surely put him on the map. Steve Jobs anyone? Ouch! I just said that on a Droid forum but i'm sure you see the parallels.
One thing I can say without a doubt is that a "Superphone" from Motorola sporting the Tegra 2 does exist.
From NVIDIA: “Yes, we are working with Motorola. If you have questions, please check with Motorola, as we’re under NDA.”
So there you have it. Motorola has something out there and it will be the most powerful Android device to date when it's released. I know I will be one of the first in line when this device hit's. The wait continues...
UPDATE: AT&T has made a deal with Motorola and will likely be the first carrier to launch a dual-core phone running Gingerbread (which might actually turn out to be Android 3.0 – that is still uncertain). That device is the Motorola Olympus MB860, which we have lovingly been referring to as the Terminator.
