For a while now, AT&T have been rumored to working on a successor to the Motorola Atrix, dubbed the “Edison.” Well, consider it no longer a rumor, as the folks over at This is my next got their hands on the handset today.

Describing the looks and feel of the phone, Chris Ziegler called the device “a lovely phone — it looks and feels fantastic,” he also said “the construction seems to be classic Moto: sturdy and on the heavy side (in a pleasant way, not an uncomfortable one).” Now as far as the specs are concerned, the Edison will include:

  • 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Micro USB and HDMI ports toward the bottom
  • The handset is between 9.5 and 10.5mm thick
  • 1735mAh battery (which is roughly 200mAh down from the original Atrix).
  • 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video capture and single LED flash
  • Android 2.3.5
  • 1GHz OMAP 4 processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 8GB internally plus microSD expansion

Also, the smartphone sports a 4.3-inch qHD LCD screen, which is a lot better than the original Atrix. TMN, also mentioned how the Edison and Motorola Droid Bionic both are 4.3-inch qHD LCDs, but immediately noticed that the Edison lacked the noticeable hatch patterns on solid shades of gray that you see on the Bionic.

Honestly, when you look at the pictures you can clearly see that this phone will be one of Motorola’s best phones (if not these best on the market). For more pics, go here.
