motorola-olympus-tegra-2-shot

Well, looks like one of the social networking monkeys over at AT&T just let a biggie slip and got yelled at for it. In response to a question regarding the rumored Motorlola Olympus phone – which has a Tegra 2 processor and which Gizmodo’s lucky source says is an absolute iPhone killer – someone from AT&T’s AT&T Share account posted the following message:

“Hi Scott,

The Motorola Olympus should be available in December or January. Check back here for device launches or visit http://bit.ly/FKoFn for our latest devices.

Thanks~ATTShare”

And not too long of a wait later, it vanished. Instead, AT&T had this to say:

“This response was posted erroneously. We don’t have any information to share about upcoming devices.”

All the fine makings of a big public relations screw up, and the firmest confirmation of the device’s existence that we can conjure up to date. I hope that pour soul who manned the Facebook account hasn’t gotten fired over this. I mean, it can’t be worse than a Verizon employee leaving a Droid X inside of a corporate gym, right? Right?
