Motorola Motus visits FCC, gets the OK to proceed
A while back, when the DROID was the Sholes and Verizon's flagship phone was the Storm, a Motorola road map showed a device called the Motus. Scheduled for a Q1 2010 launch, this handset just visited the gang over at the FCC where the device had lunch with the guys and got the thumbs up from them. The Motus is powered by Android, of course, and the specs suggest a more budget friendly device than the DROID is. With a 3.1 inch screen, the resolution is 480 X 320 pixels on the touchscreen. The phone will have a 5MP camera with AF, offers HSPA connectivity and will be Wi-Fi enabled.

With the Motus for real, perhaps so is another interesting device on the road map. Just for the heck of it, take a look at the Sholes Tablet. The screen has the same specs as the handset right down to resolution. The camera on the tablet is upgraded to an 8MP model with xenon flash. This desirable piece of hardware has been either kept tightly under wraps, is delayed past the first quarter, or was the figment of someone's imagination. Any guesses which of the three choices is closest to the truth?
