FCC Outs Rugged Motorola WX450 for AT&T
New documents seen on the Federal Communications Commission web site provide details about an unannounced Motorola handset. The Motorola WX450 is a ruggedized bar-style QWERTY phone that is similar to the Clutch (sold by Nextel/Boost), but has support for quad-band GSM/EDGE and dual-band 850/1900MHz WCDMA, which makes it more likely to be sold by AT&T. The draft user manual also makes note of AT&T-branded services. Other features mentioned in the draft user manual include support for push-to-talk services, microSD support, and an FM radio, though these aren't confirmed. The FCC does confirm that the WX450 has Bluetooth and a keyboard, but the FCC documents don't include any information about Wi-Fi. Neither Motorola nor AT&T has announced this device.
