    Gizmodo has leaked some more pics of the Dual-core Tegra 2 powered Motorola Olympus. Now, whoever took these pics claims he got it from a flea market but I personally think it's probably a well staged leak from a Motorola insider. Regardless, we all reap the rewards.

    Check out some more great picks on GIZMODO.

    Enjoy!!

    Agreed, it looks great except the dock. This could be my next phone.

    Thanks CK!

    Anyone know compared to the droid 1 how much bigger in overall size this is? I think my droid 1 is big enough already to carry around

    It looks about the same size as the DX.

    This phone is sexy! Don't care too much for MotoBlur, so I'll just download ADW or LaucherPro, and have at it. Seriously, this appears to be the phone I've been waiting for...

    I do worry about how much memory this thing will have. The D1 is terrible on internal storage, and without rooting, its really limited on what you can get in the market after a certain point (which is a lot less than it should be). If Moto has drastically improved on that, then I'm 100% game for this thing.

    I'm hoping it comes to Verizon as well. A four inch duo core Motorola smartphone is exactly what I was looking for. I do also hope if it does, it'll come with the same MotoBlur on the new Motorola Droids. Its a lot lighter on the OS and easier to update.

    I assume the timeline will be around January/February? Or are we expected to wait later?

    Supposedly this is going to be 4.1" which some of us believe is the "sweet spot" of phone sizes - and the vanilla notification bar in the pic makes me wonder ;)

    I keep hearing it will be announced in january as a Verizon 4G device. So whatever date the CES event is (I think it is called that :icon_eek: ) then thats when we should see it. All I can say is I hope its true!:)

    when the very, very, very early rumors came out about Moto's "superphone", i think the specs were for 1 gig of internal memory. CK, is that still the rumor??

    Sadly, a request like that will need more than a prayer; following their statement regarding that damn "B" word in future devices.

    So is that just a misprint or are my dreams really crushed? The first post on this phone said Verizon/4G as well, but thats a pretty big typo to make if Gizmodo is wrong.

    It is going to AT&T first and then to VZW as 4G. At least that is what's being said. I really hope VZW gets this thing sooner than later. Maybe a sweet valentine?

    February/March on Verizon.

    Tp the vanilla notification bar is suppose to change to black with Gingerbread. Obviously this device is not running that.

    Huskerkate I'm not entirely sure in internal storage on this device to be perfectly honest. I haven't heard or seen anything.

    One thing that may interest you guys is that Nvidia has some Quad-Cores in the works. Never ends does it? Lol

    Motorola is going to be my device of choice for years to come that's all I know at this point : )
