Dell Benzine, Motorola Sholes, Morrison Rumors Continue

We’ve heard an awful lot about the rumored Dell Android headed to China and the awesomely high-end Motorola Sholes headed for Verizon Wireless… time to hear more. We’ve got specs for each and potentially new names: its the Dell Benzine and Motorola Sholes (not Shules)… at least this is what a BGR Ninja says.

First off… a picture of the purported Dell Benzine:

I’m a little bit confused by the Benzine name since a few days ago the market-ready name for the Chinese Dell device was rumored to be an OPhone branded Dell Mini3i? If we’re finding out the code name after we already have the market-ready name… kind of defeats the purpose, eh? But we can’t complain too much as specs which haven’t yet been mentioned were included in the leak:

  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE class 12
  • Size: 68.6cc
  • 103g grams weight
  • Dimensions: 58 x 122 x 11.7mm
  • Display: 3.5″ nHD 640×360 LCD, 18-bit, 262K colors
  • OTA capable
  • Microsoft Exchange support
  • Google, AIM, Yahoo and MSN IM support
  • 3 megapixel auto-focus, flash, 8x digital zoom camera with 30fps video shooting mode, built in photo editor
  • USB 2.0, Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR
  • A-GPS
  • On-screen QWERTY keyboard, hardwriting recognition, multi touch UI
  • MicroSD slot

And that ninja kicked down the idea that the Motorola we’ve seen is called the Shules and said it is called the Sholes, claiming its a 13.7mm slider. Oh and one last bit of Android rumor to top it all off… it seems today’s Bruce LeeDroid suggested we mark our calendars for late September for the launch of the Motorola Morrison…

Ummm that soon? Are you kidding me? AWESOME! Consider the calendar marked in permanent marker (that way they feel worse for delaying it).

[Thanks StephenSaurusRex... I guess the problem is we only heard it called the Sholes in the first place!]

    Hey Rob, I think you got it backwards. BGR says it IS the Sholes and not “Shules.” Which makes me happy. I prefer Os over Us any day! Thanks for the article!

    on the photos there is no flash to see on the dell phone, but specs say so?

  • Farch

    I’d heard it was named after Christopher Sholes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_Sholes)

    Makes sense.

  • mordecai

    does it support 3g signals?
