According to the president and representative director of Motorola Korea, Rick Wolochatiuk, the Motorola Motoroi is likely to make its way to other markets around the rest of the world, including the United States. The Motoroi has also been referred to as the Sholes Tablet in media speculation.

This is good news for many Android faithful who have been waiting for a ‘top end’ device for a while. It is important to remember that there are already phones (e.g. Samsung Omnia i8910HD) out there which offer an 8MP camera, 720p video recording, GPS, etc. on the market and despite the excellent offerings of the Droid and other recent devices, in terms of the hardware upon which it runs, Android is still lagging behind the very best. The video below shows the multitouch facilities of the Motorola Motoroi in action, including some pinch zoom fun.
