Android Central has more details on Motorola's Android phone for Verizon which may or may not have a 600 MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, 3.7-inch 854x480 screen, 5-megapixel camera, video recording and Android 2.0 Eclair (w/ native flash support!).


The phone has floated around under the names "Sholes," "Tao" and "Droid," the last of which seems to be the name most people are betting on. Phonedog says the Android device also packs a second 430MHz C64x+ DSP + ISP (Image Signal Processor), plus a PowerVR SGX 530 GPU, giving this thing a bit of muscle. The phone is rounded otu with a sliding keyboard under its surface, 16 gigs of storage space (with MicroSD for even more room), and a 3.5mm audio jack, all in an enclosure that's just 13.7 mm thick.

The device is rumored for a December 1 launch, meaning we probably won't see it until the new year, but this seems like a promising smartphone contender in the Verizon lineup (BGR also seems to think a keyboard-free version will be announced next year as well). [PhoneDog via Android Central]
