Motorola Olympus - is it real?

We love these Android "about" screens. And the reason we love them is that you can make your own with a couple of lines in the command prompt and about 30 seconds with a text editor. So when we say take what you see above with a grain of salt, we mean a mountain-sized piece of the ol' sodium chloride.

That could be the Motorola Olympus, with Android 3.0.

And possibly that weird 480x818 resolution is for real, and part of some super secret Android Tablet with a quad-core fuel-injected flux capacitor running at 1.21 gigawatts that, for some reason, Motorola is keeping quiet about. (Or if you look at the top right of the image, you'll see where the notification bar -- or something -- probably was cropped out.)

And maybe it's a version of Android running a Linux kernel that's way past the latest try-at-your-own-risk version of 2.6.36-rc7-git4 that's actually available as of this writing. But that sort of tinfoil hat talk sends Jerry into a GNU tizzy. So let's hope that's not the case, because Jerry don't need any more crazy, ya dig?

As long as we're in the midst of Wednesday build.prop Wackiness, let's revisit one of our favorite build.prop fakes to make its way into a blog post: The HTC Supersonic on T-Mobile running Android 3.0 -- on Jan. 22, 2010. Classic, folks. Classic.

So maybe this one's real, and maybe it ain't. If it's not, well, that's another one for the fake build.prop gallery. [Droid Life]

Why is it running on kernel version 2.9.x when kernel.org show that the latest is: 2.6.35?
