Verizon Getting Android Via Motorola Sholes/Shules?

You know how Motorola is hurting? You know how Verizon is seriously lacking in the Google Android department? It seems that both of these concerns will soon be addressed with the upcoming Motorola Sholes smartphone.

That’s a very unfortunate codename (let’s hope it’s “just” a codename), since it’s only a couple of letters away from a very bad cuss word. S-holes? That can’t be good. A few sites are reporting this unconfirmed handset as the Motorola Shules and that could be a little better. For now, we don’t know for sure whether it’s the Sholes or the Shules.

Chalk it up to rumor, but we’re hearing that this touchscreen and sliding QWERTY-equipped Android smartphone is being produced by Motorola and it will be bound for Verizon Wireless. So, what kind of specs can we expect?

The most notable feature is the 3.7″ touch-sensitive 480×854 display, 16GB flash memory, microSD expansion, HTML browser, Google Android, 5MP autofocus camera, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, Wi-Fi, and GPS. That slide-out QWERTY keyboard almost makes me think me think of an HTC, no?

If all the rumblings are to be believed, the Motorola Sholes/Shules will hit retail shelves this October for a price yet to be determined.

  1. If Verizon don't carry Motorola Sholes in October, let see a bunch of their customers left to AT&T for iPhone and T-Mobile for Cliq

  2. I've had Verizon for one year now, they made a lot of promises regarding services that turned out to be blatent false advertising. Also, I live in a major city and get awful reception. I'm fed up with Verizon and their lies.

    basically…yes, I am so sick of being wooed into two year contracts with shiny verizon toys…

  4. So if Verizon gets Android, will it have its own market with outrageous prices and useless software aside from a few clones of existing software, and somehow prevent users from installing anything other than what's on the market?
