Motorola ‘Olympus’ with HD Screen, Tegra 2 Hits AT&T Q1?
Rumors of a high-end Android handset coming to AT&T courtesy of Motorola are intensifying, with Boy Genius Report now reporting that the so-called Motorola Olympus will arrive in the first quarter of next year. Moreover, its tipster, a supposed Motorola insider, claims that the device will feature a four-inch screen that will allegedly “step it up in resolution,” presumably to combat the iPhone 4’s Retina Display, which packs 640 x 960 pixels into a 3.5-inch screen. Most Android and Windows Mobile/Phone models have maxed out at WVGA or FWVGA resolution, although future versions of Android are said to support higher pixel counts.
Besides the screen, the other news here is that this “beautiful” phone will supposedly be powered by nVIDIA’s Tegra 2 CPU, a powerful chipset which performs exceptionally well at graphic-intensive tasks. All-in-all it sounds like an upgraded Droid X coming together here, though naturally that branding is exclusive to Verizon — making us wonder what exactly Moto has in store for Big Red next year if something this exciting is coming to rival AT&T.
