Rumor has it that Motorola is cooking up two new Android phones for Verizon and T-Mobile. Apparently code-named Sholes and Morrison, the smart phones each boast 5-megapixel cameras, video recording, and GPS navigation in one of the models. If this scuttlebutt is true, that makes two more solid entrants for Google's mobile push.
This strength-in-numbers approach was supposed to be Android's greatest weapon against BlackBerry and iPhone. Google's fingerprints would not only inspire a slew of impressive smart phones, but also encourage a robust marketplace of compelling, community-developed apps – or so the argument goes.
So, when does that happen? When do Android fans get to enjoy that?
