Tegra 2-powered Olympus Turns Up at the Market

I love flea markets. They're the perfect example of the age-old adage, "One man's trash is another man's treasure." Still not convinced? Well, one Gizmodo tipster claims he managed to snatch up an Olympus at a market recently. That's a Motorola Olympus, by the way, not a camera.

In case you've just tuned in, the Olympus is a Tegra 2-powered Android phone that's supposed to be headed to AT&T in the next few weeks. Though AT&T has confirmed it's getting the device, Motorola hasn't yet formally announced the Olympus.

Gizmodo cites its tipster as saying he bought it not knowing it would power on. However, power on it did. By holding volume down and power buttons he was "able to access a developers menu with a lot of features, one being a bypass activation screen." "This is a pretty cool phone," he conceded.

We'll bet. The pictures sent to Giz betray an HDMI port as well as a microUSB support and a forward-facing camera. Other than that, there's not much in the way of new information. Still, click through for a full gallery of pictures of the device.
