Leaked roadmap suggests GSM version of Motorola Sholes

15 October, 2009

It’s not a secret that Motorola are experiencing their darkest period - at least their mobile phones division is. however we've just spotted a part of the company roadmap and there are some quite intriguing devices able to regain (at least part of) the glory Motorola enjoyed a few years back.

On this image you can see some unannounced Motorola devices. And all of them are expected to show up in the US (hopefully elsewhere as well) before the end of this year or at the beginning of the 2010.

You may not be able to see clearly how they are gonna look but a more important thing is easy to see - their key features.

And while the Morisson (officially know as DEXT or CLIQ) is no longer a mystery, the others still haven't been revealed to the public by the American company.

You've probably already heard of Motorola Sholes but up until now only a CDMA version was rumored heading directly to Verizon in the US. According to the roadmap the Sholes will feature HSUPA support (which is a GSM networks thing) plus Wi-Fi (with DLNA) and it is expected to come with a large 3.7" touchscreen of 480 x 854 pixels resolution. Reportedly, the Sholes will also pack a 5-megapixel autofocus snapper with flash.

A lot more tempting is the next device, nicknamed as Motorola Sholes Tablet. It will have the screen and connectivity options of its non-tablet bro but adding an 8-megapixel autofocus camera equipped with a xenon flash. Among the most interesting features of the Sholes Tablet is the 720p video output (via HDMI).

The second pair of unannounced mobile phones featured on the roadmap includes the Motorola Motus and the Motorola Zeppelin. They share the same functionality however each of them wraps it different designs. Both of them will sport 3.1-inch touchscreens of 480 x 320 pixels resolution and support for Wi-Fi and HSUPA. The two new Motorola phones will also come with 5-megapixel autofocus shooters.

Motorola Sholes is expected to be announced by the end of October while the Sholes Tablet, Motus and the Zeppelin will be introduced officially some time during the first quarter of 2010.

According to that image Motus and Zeppelin will cost app. 200GBP (around 220 euro) and the Sholes Tablet - 350GBP (380 euro). The Motorola Sholes should be sold for a bit less than its tablet version.
