An AT&T employee revealed in a reply to a question on the AT&T Share Facebook page that the Motorola Olympus, likely revealed in pictures several days ago, may be releasing as soon as December or January. The Motorola Olympus was previously unconfirmed by either AT&T or Verizon, who are both rumored to be launching a variant of it.

BoyGeniusReport contends that one of their readers was the individual who asked AT&T the question. Shortly after BoyGeniusReport mentioned AT&T's confirmation, the response from AT&T Share was deleted and replaced by a statement saying that "This response was posted erroneously. We don’t have any information to share about upcoming devices.”
The Motorola Olympus is rumored to feature a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, which will likely propel it into the spot of AT&T's flagship Android device. If Motorola intends to get this device out in time for the holiday season, they would have to start moving soon to get any public awareness of the product before the shopping is done for the holiday season.
However, the sheer fact that the AT&T employee was not sure about a release date leads me to believe that the launch is still several weeks away, likely sometime in early to mid-January. This makes sense from Motorola's perspective if they want to put Android Gingerbread on the device, as the release of Gingerbread should be coming any day now.
