Motorola Olympus Found At Flea Market

Of course, we're never too sure that what our tipsters have told us is the truth, but this one claims he bought Motorola's unannounced new flagship at a market. The very same Android that's leaked all over the place recently.

So far we know the Olympus (model number MB860) is running Android 2.2, has a Tegra 2 chip, looks larger than the Defy and is said to be heading to AT&T in January.

Our tipster told us that "he bought it not knowing it would power on. apparently by holding volume down and power I was able to access a developers menu with a lot of features, one being a bypass activation screen.

this is a pretty cool phone."

From the photos, we can also ascertain that there's a HDMI port as well as a microUSB port for charging/syncing, and a forward-facing camera. It does look larger than the Defy, as we said before, so that means the screen size is going to be larger than 3.7-inches.

The most important rumoured spec of the Olympus is that it's running off a Tegra 2 chip, and so far none of the leaks have been able to prove that. Perhaps we could ask our market-foraging tipster to prise the phone open for us? [Thanks L!]
