Apart from being an interesting device by itself, Motorola Sholes is, reportedly, also the flagship phone on which Google will release Android 2.0 (aka Eclair).
Moreover, AndroidAndMe reports that there will be a GSM/UMTS version of Motorola Sholes, along the CDMA one destined for Verizon Wireless. It’s said that this GSM version will be launched by AT&T sometime in 2010, as well as by several other mobile operators around the world.
2010 is also the year when a keyboard-less Motorola Sholes might be introduced. This would have an 8MP camera and a thinner case.
However, Verizon remains the first carrier to release the Motorola Sholes – the QWERTY one – sometime later this year.
As previously reported, the smartphone seems to be a “mobile gaming powerhouse”, using the ARM NEON technology, which provides excellent support for next-gen game physics and 3D graphics.
It all looks very interesting, so let’s hope that Motorola will announce the Sholes (any of its versions) soon, together with all the details about it.
