Motorola “Sage” Sees an FCC Filing – Android-based Handset for AT&T?


A new FCC filing was uncovered late yesterday showing a new device – the Motorola Sage – could be running Android and could be headed to AT&T. The assumption that this thing will run Android comes from the fact that the device is equipped with the array of radios you’d only find in a smartphone. Putting two and two together, we know that Motorola only uses Android in their smartphones these days. The device is stocked with HSDPA and HSUPA on the same frequency bands used by AT&T.


We’d love to speculate that this is an entirely new device, but it’s possible that this could be a device we’ve already seen as American Androids are named differently from their overseas counterparts more often than not. We’ll just have to wait until the leak train gets going (or until AT&T and Motorola announces anything) before we learn anything more.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

Droid X (Milestone X?) and Droid 2 (Milestone 2?) Headed to Europe?

  1. Just a rumor but an AT&T employee told me that they might be getting a Droid X variant. I didn’t think it to be true, but with this, maybe?

  2. Droid x is a ridiculous size of a phone to be carrying around..seriously..

  3. I’d be completely happy with a Droid X for AT&T. I’ve stuck on EDGE for almost a year now, simply because AT&T has the crappiest Android phones, not worth re-upping a contract for.

    Is it too much to ask for an Android with a 3.7+” screen, Snapdragon+ class processor, HDMI output, and LED flash?

    Sure, the Captivate comes close. Its processor and screen are arguably the best you’ll find right now, but no HDMI out (except with $50 cable) and no LED flash kills it.

  4. QuantumRand — I suggest you take another look at the Big T’s website. They have a very, very nice Android phone from Samsung’s “Galaxy S” line they call the Captivate. Check it out … has all the specs you mention except no LED flash. 4″ Super AMOLED screen, 1Ghz Hummingbird processor, 16GB on-board with support for 32GB MicroSD cards. Some reviews quibble but the 5MP camera takes pretty darn good photos with some nice controls borrowed from Samsung’s point-and-shoot line-up. Even without LED flash it handles low light reasonable well and I think you’ll find it’s not the deal breaker you think it is.

  5. I think at&t would want its iPhone customers to switch to Android. AT&T has to pay a much higher subsidy to Apple.

  6. Its a really good news for AT&T users.
    Thanks buddy…

  7. @QuantumRand Aside from the front facing camera…the AT&T Samsung Captivate pretty much stomps the DroidX in every category. How come it isn’t upgrade worthy to you? I’ve had it since release and all my friends and co-workers with DroidX and EVO’s are jealous of the screen and graphics.

  8. @Kennon

    I think he really wants the LED flash on his phone……

  9. I am between the iPhone4 and an Android phone right now and i really really want to stay in the open source and not fall into the trappings of Apple BUT now a major stumbling block has arisen for me. The iPhone 4 has a better camera and video. I’ve seen a cross section of examples and the iPhone 4 wins out. Also i want to take my phone traveling overseas and at&t works over there. Ugh!!!
