Motorola A1600 and Q10 Could Show up at CTIA

We’ll believe it when we see it, but word on the street is that Motorola might actually bring something of interest to CTIA 2008. The A1600 (MOTOMING) and Q10 are both though to be slated for a 2H 2008 release along with Motorola’s upcoming ROKR E8, Z9, ZN5 and Z10. As such, it does make a bit of sense that CTIA would be the time to give a preview of at least a couple of the aforementioned handsets. The A1600 is Moto’s next-generation touch-only smartphone and successor to the well-liked A1200. It’s thought to be rocking a 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash, A-GPS, WiFi and a 17.5mm-thick case. As for the Q10, this isn’t the first expo where it’s debut has been predicted. The slim smartphone was thought to be making an appearance at this past Mobile World Congress but perhaps it took a wrong turn on the way to Barcelona. At any rate, it would be nice to see something of value from Motorola as opposed to a bunch of kids breakdancing and putting on ball-handling exhibitions to obnoxiously-loud music (2007 Symbian Smartphone Show anyone?).
