FCC Outs Mystery Motorola Handset for AT&T
Documents on the Federal Communications Commission web site provide a peek at an unannounced handset from Motorola. The XT 1058 was certified with AT&T's unique LTE bands, in addition to 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.0, and NFC — all hallmarks of a high-end smartphone. Motorola has not released a handset for AT&T since last year's Atrix HD. The most recent batch of high-end smartphones made by Motorola were all sold by Verizon Wireless under the Droid brand. The FCC documents provide a rough sketch of the XT 1058, but no other specific details beyond the wireless certifications.
Motorola's third attempt at the Atrix brings the charms of a ColorBurst high-def display, LTE 4G, and a powerful 8-megapixel camera to the table. Is the Atrix HD lacking anything, or does it have it all?

Kyocera's US phone lineup is down to just rugged phones these days, where they compete with Sonim. Kyocera's been at this for a while, though, so the DuraForce Pro 2 is building on quite a bit of experience.

AT&T today announced that the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update is available for the Motorola Atrix HD. The update, which adds Google Now, camera improvements, and better notifications, can be downloaded and installed over Wi-Fi.
If this is the rumor Motorola/Google X Phone.
1) It had a removable battery
2) It kept the Kevlar backing (more for personal reason)
3) Especially if it got regular updates, especially since its rumored to be stock updates (Nexus-like), I'd take a month delay simply because that would be better than what is happening now
