Motorola Edison Tipped By Webtop Code

Hidden within the Webtop software for the new Motorola Bionic lies a bit of code that contains a list of Motorola hardware with Webtop compatibility. It uses device code names instead of their retail monikers, but it doesn’t take much time to figure out that the Olympus, Sunfire, and Targa (in case you’ve forgotten) are the Atrix, Photon, and Bionic. Beyond those phones though, there are two other entries in the list that could be tipping us off to the existence of additional Webtop-compatible Motorola Androids.

First off in the list, right after the Olympus, is “Common”. This is all speculation at this point, but there’s talk that Common is just a placeholder or an entry referring to any Webtop-using smartphone. That definitely makes sense, but just makes us all the more aware of how surreal some phone names are getting – even the Motorola Default or Motorola Placeholder might give us a few moment’s pause before realizing the intent behind them.

The other new name is one that really sounds like an actual handset: the Motorola Edison. The name itself doesn’t evoke that of any Motorola Android we’re familiar with (like Sunfire and Photon are sort-of related), so it could any of several Motorolas on the horizon: the Atrix-refresh for AT&T LTE, maybe even the Droid RAZR that just crossed our path?
