Sholes: About that Name
How about a little light-hearted, interesting bit of triva to pass along today?Â There’s a Motorola handset rumored to be landing on Verizon’s network later this year that goes by the codename/nickname of “Sholes”.Â Strange name for a phone, isn’t it?Â Well maybe there’s a reason for it.
According to Wikipedia: Christopher Latham Sholes (February 14, 1819 – February 17, 1890) was an American inventor who invented the first practical typewriter and the QWERTY keyboard still in use today.
The Sholes is a classy looking handset with a nice sized keyboard so it certainly seems feasible that this would be the reason for the name.
