Moto Sholes to be known as Tao at Verizon

Motorola's Android-powered Sholes A855 handset has recently passed the FCC in a filing, indicating it should be ready for sale in North America. While photos, a feature-set and user manuals aren't available for about another six months, a data sheet confirms the Sholes will include EVDO Rev A network support and have a Wi-Fi radio. The phone is expected to reach Verizon stores in October, where it is likely to be renamed to the Tao.

Other specs of the device include a 3.7-inch, 480x854 resolution touchscreen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Built-in RAM is capped at 256MB, but 512MB of storage space is built into. An 8GB microSDHC memory card should be packed in with the device. Otherwise, there is an autofocusing 5-megapixel camera and GPS.

There is still no word on pricing. [via PhoneArena]
