Motorola Shules / Sholes Launching With Android Eclair, GSM Shules Headed to AT&T / T-Mobile, Flash Still on the Way

Labels: , , , , , , , , , ,

If you've been keeping up with the news at all, you should know that Motorola's Android handset, the Sholes / Shules will be heading to Verizon, thanks to earlier reports of this rocking CDMA. Take a look at what he heard today, via Boy Genius.

  • The Shules will launch with Eclair — Donut is so H1 2009, and Motorola’s upcoming Android slider will reportedly drop with Eclair on board. It may even be the “flagship” Eclair handset intended to showcase all of the new features Android will have obtained with Eclair’s release.
  • The Shules will be a gaming beast — The handset is optimized for ARMv7 architecture and will be able to gobble up 3D graphics and games like none other. Supposedly.
  • There is a GSM version of the Shules in the works — While Verizon will get the CDMA version of the Motorola Shules this year as an exclusive, there is already a GSM version in the pipeline and it should land on AT&T, or T-Mobile, some time in 2010.
  • The Flash is still on track — One of the many handsets we scooped last year, the Flash, is still said to be making its way to Verizon and it should launch in early 2010. This further supports what we speculated earlier month.

Interesting, isn't it? You may remember the Flash below and it looks like it will launch in 2010. The Sholes / Shules launching on AT&T and T-Mobile is definitely a positive thing - the more carriers, the merrier. Just in case you didn't know, "Eclair" is a version of Android, similar to Cupcake and Donut. We could see multitouch on this handset, since we've heard reports of Android having multitouch support somewhere down the line. I know everyone's curious about Motorola's Blur UI though and that's what I'm waiting for.
