Motorola Cliq2 at FCC Gates; Is this the Smartphone Heading for AT&T?

March 30, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Another unidentified handset from Motorola has been spotted at FCC. The device, known by the FCC ID IHDT56MW1, is learnt to the company’s new phone that will extend support to both WCDMA bands II and V. It offers support to both GSM 850 and 1900 as well.

As you know, these frequencies correspond to the services of AT&T in the United States. That makes it pretty sure that the device will be released on AT&T when it launches.

Well, another aspect worthy of note is that the device is being speculated as the Motorola Cliq 2 handset. The assumptions stem from the fact that the device uses a Motorola SNN5843A battery, also known as the BP6X.  If you have noticed, this is the same battery used in the Motorola Droid and Cliq devices.

Yet another aspect that adds credibility to this fact is that both the Cliq 2 and IHDT56MW1 were tested only a week apart  – on September 3, 2010 and September 10, 2010, respectively.

Apart from these speculations we do not any other info that makes us cement our guess that the new device from Motorola is the Cliq 2 for AT&T. However, we would at this point of time like to believe that this indeed is the AT&T version of Motorola Cliq 2. Tell us if you feel otherwise.
