Motorola Olympus smiles for the camera

Motorola Olympus smiles for the camera
And we certainly smile back as we look at the latest leaked pictures of the Motorola Olympus - an intriguing piece of technology rumored to have a dual-core Tegra 2 processor. If that is not enough, let's add that it is expected to appear with the AT&T branding somewhere around January 2011.

The pictures confirm once again its sexy rounded edge shape, but look closely and you will see a front-facing camera for video calls and a rear-facing camera with flash. The screen definitely fits our definition for big at 3.7 or more inches. An HDMI port is also on board and microUSB will be used for charging and/or synchronizing the device.

The happy owner claims to have bought the Motorola Olympus at a flea market and for some reason felt like holding down the volume down key and the power button at the same time and voila - a secret developer's menu appeared. Uhm, too much of a coincidence? We leave it to you to decide, what we see so far is that the Olympus is running Android 2.2 with the BLUR interface. That might change by January, but for the time being take a look at the pictures of the Motorola Olympus and share your thoughts on it with us!

Nice looking phone based on the hardware, but take that crap called MotoBlur off and throw some stock Android on that baby. Make it run nice and smooth. for more information about this topic you can visit

so would have bought this phone if it had a xenon flash :( . is it really that hard to add a xenon flash to it motorola? why not add one and make it perfect? shame. i guess ill be getting the xt720 instead

I've been saying the same thing about the XT720 since A T & T has picked mostly jacked up versions of Android phones. Just about tired of waiting though and this seems like a great alternative.

i know. att really has had wack android phones but recently figured out that the reason was so nothing competes with iphone. apple would be upset. but now ive researched the xt720 and it will never get any new android update, no adobe flash, the vid doesnt really record 25 fps but 20 or less, its a mess so seems i will have to get the olympus. if no xenon i think ill still get it if there isnt another android phone with xenon out that is great.
