has been tipped for a release in late October. The Motorola Sholes Android smartphone is expected to have a full touchscreen display that slides aside to reveal a QWERTY keyboard. The leaked Verizon roadmap does not, unfortunately, have pricing details for the Motorola Sholes, but the Android device has previously been tipped as an entry- to -mid-range device so we're expecting something at around the $99 price point. That's unconfirmed speculation right now, however. Android Community will likely find out more, though, at Motorola's press event on September 10th, where the company is expected to unveil its new range of Google phones. We're fully expecting to see the Motorola Sholes Android smartphone center stage. [via SlashGear]

SlashGear a heads-up to save September 10th for what certainly looks to be an Android announcement. The event, to be held in San Francisco, would seem to be in aid of launching Motorola's first Android smartphones, potentially the much-leaked Morrison and Sholes. There are no details from Motorola themselves as to what's scheduled for the event, beyond the Android logo on the invitation itself. However given the various leaks about entry- to mid-range Android-based Motorola handsets over the past few months, plus the company's own admission that they've been working on Android devices, it seems a fair assumption that this is the ailing company's attempt to get back into the spotlight. You can bet that Android Community will be there in San Francisco on September 10th to cover all the new announcements, but until then we'll be scouring the rumor-mill to see if we can catch a jump on what may be heading up the show.
