We here at BGR are well aware that Motorola’s Tao (aka Sholes) is the current object du désire for Android lovers and smartphone junkies alike, so we’re pretty encouraged by a rumor being peddled by The Street that would see Motorola announce the Tao next week. Ordinarily such rumors are approached with guarded skepticism (especially considering The Street’s not so hot track record of late), but we see no reason to doubt this particular tidbit. Not only is CTIA kicking off in San Diego on October 7th, but Motorola’s own developer conference, MOTODEV, also starts the very same week. Add in the fact that the Tao just recently got clearance from the FCC and someone felt brave enough to go wild with some pics of the device, and we’d say this phone is ready to burst onto the scene.
UPDATE: We’ve heard without a doubt that The Street (more like Skid Row) is wrong and this handset won’t be introduced next week.
