High-End Motorola MB710 Passes the FCC, Headed for T-Mobile


We have all been wondering when and where we might see the Motorola Motoroi/Milestsone XT720 cross the pond and land in the States, and the FCC may well have just given us our answer (at least to the where part). A phone that looks to be the spitting image of the device that recently launched in Europe has passed the FCC on its way to what could only be T-Mobile’s bands. Along with giving the model number as the Motorola MB710 and some shots of the handset, an early version of a user manual is included referencing T-Mobile’s now-defunct MyFaves.


We know from the documentation that the phone will feature MotoBlur, but it isn’t clear whether the MB710 will feature the same 720MHz OMAP 3440 as the XT720 or whether it will be bumped for release with the same 1GHz OMAP 3630 found in the Droid X and Droid 2. Either way the processor should be serviceable enough to make this the only high-end Android phone by Motorola to hit a non-regional carrier in the US that isn’t spelled with some combination of the letters ionzerv.

  1. I’m guessing it looks a bit better in person???

  2. I’m not a big fan of phones that try to look pretty but I really hope that’s just a prototype

  3. Does it have three sensors up in the top left corner or is it two sensors and a FFC?

  4. moto should line up some high end phones with AT&T. With Iphone coming soon t verizon, Motorola needs to build up relationship with AT&T

  5. Fuck at&t douche. I wish android would shun them completely.

  6. The Xenon flash is interesting, though.

  7. What’s with everyone’s sudden obsession with FFCs?? Ever since the damn iPhone 4 came out people have been asking for those things on every phone that manages to go through the FCC. It would be nice to have an FFC, even though I know I will never use it, but its certainly not needed and it really wont be a deal breaker for me on any phone if it doesn’t have one.

  8. Wow….that’s a funky look. Is it just me or does the design make anyone else think of the Ford Taurus…? Makes you really appreciate the look of the HTC Legend (too bad its specs are so Jan 2010)

  9. Kevin, me and you might be related. I’ve been preaching your last sentence everywhere. I’m actually happy for T-Mobile as this would prove that Motorola are actually creating high end devices, other than Verizon.

  10. Bring on the AT&T Androids. 3G850mHz means I can use them on Next G in Aus.

  11. . jayy336 @ your wrong htc evo was the first phone to have ffc in june 3rd then the iphone4 came out in jun 24. SO no the iphone wasnt first if u do more research europe and asia had that in there cell phone in 2008 before htc evo and iphone had it .
