Battery covers for the Motorola Droid/Sholes/Tao are pictured
While Verizon has stepped up its Android involvement the last few days, the carrier still has not officially introduced the Motorola Droid/Sholes/Tao to the waiting eyes of the World. In case you have lost some hope and have started to wonder if the whole thing was just the work of a creative fiction writer, here comes some proof that the device is for real. Motorola has released some press shots of the battery covers of the handset, and one for the Motorola Torch. The latter device is aka the Inferno which is a featurephone expected to replace the Krave at Verizon .

As far as the Droid/Sholes/Tao is concerned, the picture shows two battery covers almost exactly the same.The only difference is that one is branded with the Verizon name and logo (similar to the BlackBerry Storm battery cover) and the Motorola insignia, while the other just has the Motorola insignia. The battery cover without the Verizon name and logo gives us a strong clue that an overseas GSM carrier could also be in line to offer the multi-named Android phone.

you are right, because it is a diff os. You are comparing apples to oranges . In the end the O2 is still a winmo device. You can polish a turd but it is left a really shiny turd.

no matter how great the os / ui or features or outter design is on the device a moto is an will always be a moto. and a moto will always be one of the least trust worthy devices on the market. get ready to utilize your insurance and warranty... but wait. maybe they'll let you keep the fancy battery covers

I agree... HTC phones hands down when it comes to any OS. For all of you WinMo haters I would suggest getting an HTC, then you will change your minds. I have had HTC WinMo devices for 3 years now... not a single problem that I didn't cause and fix myself (mainly becuase I was hacking it to unlock GPS).

What is wrong with people? I mean seriously, do people just not think before they speak? The Motorola Sholes is definitely going to be slower than my car, and it definitely has less cargo room! Eff that theres no way I would get the sholes. It does have a better camera then my shampoo though, so . . . I may change my mind! Stupid people FTL!!! Tired tired tired of imba siles (sp that way on purpose)
