Motorola Olympus tablet gets certifications

Motorola's 2011 plans may have solidified today with the discovery of three certifications for a mystery device. The Olympus MB860, believed to be one of Motorola's tablets or possibly the Terminator phone, has passed certifications through the Bluetooth SIG, the Wi-Fi Alliance and previously the UPnP Forum. The sites publicly list it as a smartphone, but the Bluetooth SIG unusually changed the name of the device to a vague BT0001, suggesting Motorola had a vested interest in keeping its real model number and purpose a secret.

The exact nature isn't as clear. Olympus has been floated as the likely name of a tablet, but it may also be a very high-end smartphone. Both devices would use an NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset, according to rumors. Motorola co-CEO Sanjay Jha is believed to be personally interested in the Terminator phone project and may be more likely to shepherd its own information. The main tablet effort so far is believed to be codenamed Stingray.

Regardless of the nature of the hardware, Olympus is likely to show in the early part of 2011 and could be unveiled at the CES technology expo in January. [via Phandroid]
