    With the excitement of all the new devices coming out of the Motorola’s press event, Androidandme has some GREAT news for those that were utterly disappointed with Motorola's upcoming line-up.
    Taylor over at Android and Me spoke with the man himself, Moto's CEO Sanjay Jha. He asked him about their relationship with NVIDIA.

    These are not direct quotes but the writer was paraphrasing the conversation with Sanjay:

    "Sanjay told me he was good friends with NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang and he was excited about what they were doing, but then warned me that new partners who try to enter the mobile space always have some lessons to learn. When I asked about the timing of the NVIDIA-powered device, Sanjay said there was a small possibility that Motorola might release one more phone before Christmas, but the Tegra 2 phone could possibly slip to early next year"

    Personally I don't think the device will ship this year but stranger things have happened. The most important thing is that the device is real and Q1 2011 the wait will be over for those drooling over the Dual Core Tegra 2. Taylor, from Android and me, will be in San Francisco next week and is going to try and dig up some more solid information.

    Stay tuned!!!

    Yes, we need some more news on this. Especially after yesterdays droid pro fail. Many of us were thinking it was something else. It's not for me, but it's nice to see other form factors that might lure others into android.

    I don't consider the Droid Pro a fail. If anything, it may be a success in the business sector. Companies don't want to buy their employees a toy, they want them to be productive and frankly, that is where Blackberry is beating Android IMO.

    As for the Tegra2 phone. I sure hope Google makes an OS that can make use of the hardware and do some cool **** with it. I mean, my DroidX is fast as hell, especially since I started running the Rubix rom. I could see a tablet utilizing the dual core hardware for stuff like more than basic video editing, 1080p playback/recording and even more graphic/advanced games. But in a phone, its overkill and probably going to be a battery killer. Time will tell i guess.

    Sounds great, but with school starting this spring I'm afraid I won't have time or the funds to enjoy all the Android goodness next year, but great news nonetheless

    Agreed. The Pro's release really shined a bright light on how many kids there are in the Android world who have absolutely no idea what a "useful" phone really is. Amazing graphics and a pseudo-keyboard like the T2 do nothing what-so-ever to help you get back to clients promptly, or keep projects moving while in meetings. If anything, they're a hindrance.

    As for the T2 - What is the point of a digital keyboard? If you wanted to tap on a flat surface, why bother with a pop-out keyboard at all?

    I agree with the digital KB, but you also have to realize that what is pictured is only a prototype and most likely will not be what gets produced. I look forward to what's to come but want to see real proof first.

    Pic is just a render. It in no way depicts or assumes the likeness of the the actual Motorola device.

    You can bet getting any kind of leaked info is going to be an uphill battle.

    I do like the digital keyboard as long as it has some sort of physical border between each keys location. I love virtual keyboards. you can type pretty damn fast on them since you don't have to worry about pressure for the key to recognize.

    As for it being a slide out keyboard. that is cool too because then you don't lose any screen space for the keyboard. I love my DX and its screen size, but it sucks to lose 1/3 of it for a keyboard at times.

    Q1 eh? Im going to try and upgrade my droid1 in March but Im not really due for an upgrade until november 2011. Now the question is do I pay more or full price since I will have only had my droid for a year or do I wait until november and get a bad a$$ phone for a lot cheaper?

    Screen real estate. A little while back a few of us had the idea of two touch surfaces: the main screen for the usual stuff and a pull out screen that could display different things such as a keyboard or game pad. Now that would be awesome if thats what this turned out to be.
