Motorola Edison For AT&T Without 4G LTE At FCC

It appears that the successor to the Motorola Atrix 4G will be known as the Motorola Edison, a name that was apparently discovered in the Motorola Droid Bionic web app, well the Motorola Edison has now popped up on the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) a it passed its way through and there appears to be some bad news.

According to an article over on Droid Life, the device is known as the Motorola Edison (MB865) was originally presumed to be the Motorola Droid HD, but the guys say they are now positive that device is the Motorola Dinara.

Thus they say that the Motorola Edison is likely to be an AT&T version of the Motorola Droid Bionic, but the bad news is the Motorola Edison FCC filing doesn’t make any mention of 4G LTE support, which basically means the device will come out lacking LTE functionality.

Apparently the rumour was that when this particular smartphone was first spotted, the main opinion was that it would actually be the first LTE enabled smartphone for the AT&T network, however this no longer appears to be the case.

Other than that little piece of sad news, spec wise there is basically nothing known about the Motorola Edison at this point in time, but with the advancement of LTE in the mobile space, perhaps the lack of 4G LTE capability may go against the new Android device.

Of course as soon and any information on the spec and such for the Motorola Edison surface we will pass whatever we hear along to our readership, do you think the Motorola Edison will do well without 4G LTE, or do you feel it is still early in the game to worry about the lack of LTE functionality?
