It’s a well known fact that Motorola has plans for smartphones and tablets featuring the NVIDIA dual-core Tegra 2 processor. First thought to be a Verizon exclusive under the DROID name, it is now not only believed to be coming to AT&T, but hitting the network before Verizon with a January launch date.

However, this could be for some very beneficial reasons. The Verizon handset, currently code named Etna, is expected to hit Verizon in February or March of next year and will fully ready for it’s 4G LTE network.

The AT&T version (internally known as the Olympus) is getting early impressions mentioning that it is “very fast, and the new screen is beautiful.” These two next-gen devices are sure going to be impressive. From the ultra fast and power saving Tegra 2 to the new screen we can expect these to join the Nexus S as the top devices of early 2011.
