Moto W760r at FCC
AT&T will soon add one of Motorola's first 3G-capable budget phones to its lineup, according to an FCC filing. The W760r is a spiritual successor to Motorola's older, rugged V-series phones but will add dual-band 3G Internet access over HSDPA, allowing it to stream live video (including over Video Share calls) and download from music stores at relatively quick speeds. The clamshell will also be one of Motorola's first W-series phones with a 2-megapixel camera and should hold microSD cards up to 4GB in size.
In the filing, the FCC also reveals the presence of Bluetooth as well as legacy EDGE data for slower 2G Internet areas. No clues are provided as to the actual release date for the W760r, though the presence of AT&T branding makes it clear the phone will be released on the American provider's network this year with prices at or below the mid-range mark.
