New AT&T Motorola Android: Sage not Droid

Whenever we gets to see something new pop up on FCC, this is normally the sign that something new is coming. This latest filing is no exception; it looks as though Motorola has a new Android device AT&T bound and will be called Sage – so not part of the Droid family.

The new HSDPA smartphone will offer 7.2Mbps and 2Mbps HSUPA, as well as quadband EDGE. All other features come as no surprise, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, AGPS and a digital compass. So Motorola are not giving anything away with this latest FCC filing.

It has not been confirmed that the Sage is AT&T bound, but Chris Ziegler from Engadget believes that everything points to them. Ziegler explains that the Backflip is looking a bit old now, so makes sense to offer a replacement.

This is all we know so far, so we seem to have more questions than answer from this latest news. We cannot tell if this will be a full touchscreen handset, or if it will offer a QWERTY keyboard, but we are certain that more details will come to us over the coming days or weeks.
