More images of the forthcoming Motorola Sholes mobile phone have been spotted, via a Chinese website, which has confirmed that the new design will be running on the latest iteration of the Android operating system - version 2.1.
The most interesting aspect of the handset, in a physical sense, is the rather odd chassis design that, seen here next to the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, offers the user an asymmetrical layout. Other confirmed features for the new phone include the squashing of the 8-megapixel camera rumour. This now appears to be nothing more than a 5-megapixel model. Still a good specification, nevertheless.
According to the Engadget website, the new Sholes will feature a large screen spanning 3.7in plus GPS for location finding and a built in FM radio for entertainment. No distribution, price or release details are forthcoming yet. However, obersevers believe that the phone will be released during 2010.
