Motorola Sholes the most desired Android phone

Last week we introduced our first weekly Android poll and asked you, “Which upcoming Android phone are you looking forward to the most?” There were many phones we could have listed, but I chose the three that we know are launching in the United States by the end of this year.

Verizon should launch the Sholes in December.

Verizon should launch the Sholes in December.

To no surprise, the Verizon Motorola Sholes came in first place capturing 43 percent of the vote. The Hero and Cliq were tied with 22 percent each and “Other” finished with 12 percent.

Both the Hero and Cliq are essentially first generation devices since they feature the same Qualcomm chipset as the T-Mobile G1. On the other hand, the Motorola Sholes is expected to be a second generation phone and the first to ship with Android 2.0. The Sholes is rumored to feature a Texas Instruments OMAP3430 chipset and offer twice the performance of any competing Android phone.

The top response for “Other” was the Sony Ericsson Xperia X3 which is rumored to feature a 1 GHz Snapdragon chipset. The Xperia X3 is said to be coming in 2010, but it remains unknown if any United States carrier will pick it up.

Some other random responses to “Other”:

  • Anything w/o an old Qualcomm in it.
  • T-Mobile UK Pulse
  • HTC Tattoo
  • Cellular South Hero
  • Samsung Instinct Q
  • HTC HD2 Running Android
  • Anything with Nvidia Tegra
  • SciPhone N12
  • I’d rather hear that Donut is compatible with G1
  • ANY Android phone that even thinks about coming to ATT
  • Your Mom

Check back tomorrow for our next weekly poll. Enough people complained about the hidden results that we decided to display the voting percentages while the poll is live.
