Motorola Olympus MB860 Headed to AT&T First?

We’ve been attempting to track the mysterious Motorola Tegra 2 device over the last couple of weeks and are starting to think it could be the Motorola Olympus (MB860) which just recently received wi-fi certification.  While it’s still a guess that this will be the dual-core device, we are doing our best to put all of the clues available together.

On that note, we seem to have missed a somewhat-major clue from that pesky @androidevicespy Twitter account.  Back on August 30th, it tweeted the named “Olympus” and  model number “MB860″ with AT&T as a potential carrier.  We had heard a rumor yesterday that this new device might not be exclusive to Verizon and I guess this would help that argument.

We still aren’t exactly sure where @androidevicespy pulls its info from, but from past experiences, we know that it has led us in the right direction.

And the story grows…

Cheers @RobNazarian!

    get the corniest carrier out of the way first. Save the best for last (Verizon, if they dont tinker with it.)

    The Tegra 2 device has been confirmed by Motorola as the Droid Terminator.

    In another forum, somebody had previously said that the Olympus is equivalent to the VZW's Stingray….which is the Moto tablet.

    • BigMace23

      that's what I heard too

    The downfall to AT&T and all Samsung Galaxy S Captivate owners can contest….No side loading of apps, only apps from the marketplace. Right there it turns me off and I work at an AT&T building

  • RoadsterHD1

    give me a Droid XXX with a built in tank of a processor and then I'll be interested.

  • Junk

    This is turning into a i*hone-esque rumor. until there's a branded phone pictured, a hands on or an official announcemement, i don't care

    • Malinas2

      Agreed

  • Patwww

    Well i got 2 year contracts so i dont give a crap about this “Tegra 2.” Itll just drain more battery. Just my opinion.

    • http://twitter.com/cheese Andrew

      you sound awfully like an iphone fanboy.

      tegra 2 is a SoC based off arm cortex-a9 chip. i would hardly call it a battery drainer, but who knows what battery life will be like for the next-gen processor. dual core addresses battery consumption issues.

        Depends how moto goes about it but it can help or kill it. Lets hope they listen to the masses and go for a little more battery life this time around. The main killer for the battery life i see right now is the phone trying so hard to get signal and the displays. Even on the lowest setting my screen takes 40%+ of the battery power by the end of the day.

      • Patwww

        Holy crap i aint no IPhone Fanboy. Im the complete opposite.

  • Michael_NM

    Android Tegra & Tegra: AT&T… yes, I'm bored… :)

  • El El Kool J

    Well it won't be a 4G capable phone on their network thats for sure.. The VZ model will probably out do all others..

  • EC8CH

    Is this how AT&T gives j*bs the middle finger as he pulls the i*hone exclusivity from them?

    • kellex

      Hah quite possibly.

    • El El Kool J

      Well we have no real true out of there own mouths confirmation of the non-exclusivity of the i*hone but i'm sure ATT see it comin.. :P suckas!!
