Another Motorola insider confirms Tegra 2 Android phone for AT&T

Outside of this site not many have been following Motorola’s next flagship superphone, but a report from BGR confirms pretty much everything we have detailed so far. One of their sources from inside Motorola has told them a device codenamed Olympus will feature a 4″ display with a step up in resolution (tip: it’s actually 4.1″ but who’s counting), it will be powered by NVIDIA (dual-core 1 GHz Tegra 2), and debut on AT&T in Q1 2011.

This Olympus MB860 phone is the device we lovingly nicknamed Terminator and it will be coming to multiple carriers, including AT&T (1st), Verizon (2nd), and possibly more (Sprint + T-Mobile).

We have yet to receive any pictures of the device, but several tipsters have said it looks like a smaller version of the Droid X with the addition of a front-facing camera (see fake blurrycam pic above). Originally I reported it would be the first dual-core phone to ship with Gingerbread (Android 2.3), but test units are currently running Android 2.2 and now that honor might now to go LG.

Look for Motorola to unveil this device at CES in January. There is a small chance it could ship before Christmas with Android 2.2, but hopefully Motorola takes the extra time and updates their software so it ships with the latest version of Android.
