    Well folks it didn't take long for Moto to fire something out into the bloggesphere seeing that leaks of the Dual Core LG Star and Samsung S have been getting a lot of "play time."

    Android and Me has just confirmed this is in fact the Motorola Olympus. The Motorola Olympus is rumored to feature NVIDIA’s dual-core Tegra 2 processor, a 4.1-inch display, 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video record, front-facing camera, HDMI out, and is currently running Android 2.2 with Motoblur. We all know that Gingerbread is right around the corner so hopefully Motorola updates this phone to Android 2.3, but we can only hope.

    It's said to be releasing around the end of January on AT&T with other carriers following. Yes VZW will get this handset and I do believe it will hit in February with you guessed it............LTE capabilities.

    So there you have it. The Dual-Core line up of the Olympus, LG Star and Samsung S. Question is what device is in your future?

    UPDATE: Newest Leaked pics!

    Definitely looks like my next phone. Why oh why must they put their motoblur skin on it? Looks like the perfect size though at 4.1 inches.

    CES can not come quick enough. This is a bad time for all of those with the DROID 1 who have an annual upgrade and are ready to make a switch.

    We can chose from the summer lineup (getting old) or the late winter lineup (a couple months away).

    At least when CES is here, we will get facts, not leaks and rumors.

    I like the look of the LG Star over this Moto. But whichever gets to Verizon first, i'll take.

    no doubt dan : ) This is going to be one heck of a device. I was leaning towards the LG Star but Motorola has been stellar with their support of the D1. Besides their top notch hardware/build quality (right next to the iPhone) they have proven to be phenomenal with their support. This will be my upgrade.

    Looks sharp, but I'm still leaning toward the LG Star since this thing has MotoBlur on it... I want as close to vanilla as Verizon will allow....

    Man February seems so far away with this old D1 burning a hole in my pocket... :(

    Wow........just wow. This just answered my question of what upgrade I have been looking for. Definately the total package by the looks of it and the final push to convert me to a full touch screen from my D1. The only thing more I wish for this is a forgiving bootloader so the devs can get right to work on it to get rid of the Blur. But worst case scenario, I think I could rock this stock and be happy :)

    its somewhat a disapointment to me coming from droid x, why would they reduce it from 4.3 to 4.1 for screen size.. also no major upgrades other than the dual core. Same MP camera, same hdmi, only other thing is it has a front facing cam. I was hoping for some more improvements on this big talked about phone :( Does it have a physical keyboard that slides out? if it does that would be the thing that would make me switch, i hate not having my physical keyboard.

    Based on past experience, and hearing its still the same.....just for reception alone Samsung is out the picture with me.

    Its either Moto or the LG. But if LTE does improves reception in bad reception areas, Samsung might be in the running. HTC too. I need my reception....everything else comes 2nd..with battery life a close 2nd....

    Yes, this or the LG Star. Both look like my next phone. I guess we'll see which VZW releases first. I will have to wait two months after my upgrade on 12/4 but these phones look like they will be wort it. Now, come on VZW, give us some LTE dual-core love!

    New stuff

    It's funny seeing all of these new devices and their technology advances and the one thing that I really miss (that is sooo common sense) is the optical mouse on my old samsung omnia. What good is a great looking screen if you have to wipe it off all of the time to see it. I would like everyone to pay attention to how many times a day they clean their screen and then tell me if I am out of bounds with my thoughts.
