The Motorola Edison, the sequel to the Atrix 4G, has been given a hands-on test by This is my next. In addition to being impressed with the overall design of the device, the most notable improvement is said to be in the display. Although fitted with a qHD display, the Atrix utilized a Pentile display; the new Edison maintains the same resolution, but switches to a different pixel grid making for clearer grey images in particular.
The successor to the Motorola Atrix 4G has shown up in the wild thanks to some leaked images posted by BGR. The Atrix 2 will not have LTE onboard, though it will sport a dual-core processor. The photos also reveal an eight-megapixel camera with 1080p video capture and Android 2.3.5 preloaded.
Motorola's MB865 has been given a more definitive codename but also a less ambitious plan. An FCC filing has given it the at least temporary codename of Edison and pegged it as running on AT&T's network, as expected. No mention is made of the 700MHz frequency range AT&T would need for LTE, however, hinting that the Android phone may just be considered a straightforward upgrade to the Atrix rather than an LTE showcase.
Apple's commitment to the iPhone as a camera phone might have grown as a rumor late Wednesday said it might jump to a dual LED flash.

Both Edison and Lite-On have been stepping up their shipments of LED flashes to major phone designers, Digitimes heard, making them ideal candidates.
