Motorola Sholes

Last updated: Nov 16th, 2010.
The Motorola Sholes has suddenly become the talk of the Android world... and for good reason. Rumored to be launching on Verizon Wireless as soon as September with monstrous specs, the Sholes is Motorola's first Android device and its arrival on VZW is highly anticipated for the Big Red Faithful.

Not only that, but the Sholes looks the part of a super sexy smartphone as well:

The Sholes doesn't just look good - those monstrous specs include a 3.7-inch touchscreen, 480x854 resolution, 5MP camera, 3.5mm headset jack, Wi-Fi, GPS and whole lot more. The question that remains is will Verizon gimp this phone in any/way/shape form like many are expecting?
