We can confirm that this little guy is the real deal (though it’s Moto so anything can happen) and we can also confirm that it’s a gem. Seriously. Here are the specs as reported by

We’re not going to lie people… We’re kind of excited. The production version isn’t going to be quite as sexy as the renders of course, but it’s still plenty sexy. Now, it’s a bit lacking in some areas compared to other Android handsets coming down the pipe, but the good news for Moto is that when it hits VZW — we mean, if it hits VZW — it’ll be the only game in Android town for Big Red. reports that the Shules should be released around October of this year.
