We reported back in early October about a Wi-Fi certification sighting for the Motorola MB860, which is rumored to be the first Motorola smartphones sporting the new Tegra 2 dual-core processors. We may have more information to make these speculations true as seen in the quote below;

UserAgentString : Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 2.2.1; en-us; MB860 Build/Blur_Version.4.0.1450.MB860.ATT.en.US Flex/P013) AppleWebKit/533.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Mobile Safari/533.1
The Motorola Olympus looks to be the MB860, and we’ve been told this will likely get an official announcement and launch at the CES show in January, which seems to line-up with other news surrounding the Motorola Olympus too. Research firm MKM Partners had told the Wall Street Journal they had information about the Motorola Olympus launching on AT&T in late January.
As AT&T may be the first to get the new Olympus, other carriers may offer the device to add to their lineups for 4G LTE devices which we are expected to see many more of in 2011. With 2011 right around the corner, at least we won’t have to wait long to find out.
