BGR’s dropped a quick bit regarding the Motorola Olympus slate that we believe broke cover recently. The device – which we believe is heading to AT&T as the Olympus – could also be going to Verizon, but it currently has a different codename: the Motorola Etna. Their source states it’s powered by Tegra 2 and should be launching in February or March and should house Verizon’s new radios to take advantage of their LTE network. Aside from the small tidbit that it’s “very fast, and the new screen is beauitful,” that’s all we have to go on. While a CES announcement for these phones may not be in order, I suspect we’ll at least be hearing about them in informal fashion as NVIDIA will be eager to show off the very processor that powers them.
