Lately, we have been hearing a lot many mobile devices coming up with an Nvidia Tegra 2 chip inside. Motorola is said to incorporate the chip in its upcoming device named Motorola Olympus. We are not sure if that is the final name, or just a code-name.
Motorola Olympus is said to be the first handset from the company to include Tegra 2. It is rumoured that it will feature Motorola’s Motoblur user interface on top of the Android platform. As per the leaked information, the Olympus would run Android 2.1 on a Tegra 2 silicon. Moreover, it would feature a 4 inch or 4.1 inch display with greater resolution. The new handset is rumoured to bear a codename of MB860. Most probably, it will reach the shelves in the United States through the carrier AT&T.
The device is said be in the pre-production phase as of now. It is expected to reach the markets in early 2011, and probably would be launched first in the US. No more specifications about the device are known yet. For more information, wait till the official release from Motorola.
Earlier, there were rumours that Motorola planning to launch an Android tablet that would sport the Nvidia processors. The company, though, now seems to be focussing on its new Tegra 2 device.
Recently, LG launched its new dual core handset. And now Motorola joins the race. I am sure there are a lot more such device to arrive in the markets soon. In such scenario, pricing would play a major role in grabbing the market share.
