New info on Motorola Shules
This article has been updated on August 12, 2009.

It has been a long time since Motorola had a device that was getting a positive buzz from the cellular community. Ever since the Razr (without an actual razor), the cellphone manufacturer from Schaumburg had hit dry wells. Now with a focus on Android powered devices, it could be that Motorola is gaining momentum, especially with the Shules (or Sholes). Some new rumors did come out this afternoon about the handset. First, it will launch with the Eclair build of Android. Also, the Shules is expected to offer up 3D graphics while optimized for ARMv7 which should make it a gaming handset with no challenger.

While later this year, Verizon will have an exclusive on the CDMA version, there are plans for a GSM model which is expected to be offered on T-Mobile or AT&T sometime next year. Speaking of 2010, Motorola still expects to drop the Android powered, sleek and sexy Motorola Flash onto Verizon for early next year.

Both the Shules and the Flash could have the Blur UI on top of the Android OS. Just the other day, we reported that Motorola was working on this customization for its Android devices. Yes, it looks like Motorola could really be back, but we still need to see a detailed list of specs on these two before we commit to getting that tatoo of the Motorola logo.
