AT&T finally jumps on the Android bandwagon

att-android

AT&T made it official just now — the wireless carrier will release five new Android handsets in the first half of 2010. Of the five, three will be exclusive to AT&T and include:

  • a Motorola smartphone with MOTOBLUR and a unique form factor, presumably the Motorola Motus/Backflip
  • a Dell smartphone, the Dell Mini 3 that we saw at the FCC late last year and was confirmed by Dell today
  • an HTC smartphone, also an exclusive to AT&T

That leaves two remaining handsets, one of which may be the Nexus One, while the other is open for speculation. More →

Motorola sets up special event for CES, rumored to launch two new devices

After a recent major come-back, Motorola is rumored to be planning something major for CES next week. Analysts are predicting that on January 6, Motorola will be announcing an Android device for AT&T, and the only guess that leaves us with right now is the Motorola Motus. A second device is slated for Verizon Wireless, according to rumors, and if we had to bet, you’ll see the Motorola Calgary. These are just rumors for now, but we’ll see soon enough. More →

Motorola Motus coming to AT&T? Full specifications

motorola-motus

We’ve just received a full spec list for the very blurry Motorola Motus and it’s pretty interesting. Why, you ask? Besides AT&T 3G support, the specs are pretty similar if not identical to the Motorola CLIQ. Our connect didn’t flat out tell us that the handset would be hitting AT&T, but hey, we can dream right? Here are the full specifications for the Motorola Motus:

  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE
  • Tri-band 7.2Mbps HSDPA (850, 1900, 2100MHz)
  • 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash
  • 256MB RAM
  • aGPS
  • Wi-Fi
  • 3.1″ capacitive 480×320 display
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • Weight: 133g
  • 1400mAh battery
  • microSD slot
  • Qualcomm MSM 7201A CPU
  • MOTOBLUR

Last but not least, we’ve been told the Motus is not a slider but a unique “flip” phone. That’s all we’ve got for now, but we’ll keep you updated as always.

Thanks, Daddy G.!

Ultra-blurry photo rumored to be Motorola Motus

Ultra-blurry photo rumored to be Motorola Motus

If there was ever a contest for blurriest photos taken post-haste, this image of a Motorola CLIQ look-alike, rumored to be called Motus, takes the cake. There isn’t much to be said or gathered about the Motus so far, except that it looks like a CLIQ with a flat keyboard and no D-pad for navigation. Said to be coming out in Q1 2010, rumors also peg this device as packing Android 1.6 and a 5 megapixel camera, so it’s not as if anything terribly special is going on. Unfortunately, the image is far too blurry to really make out the left side of the keyboard and what the bright yellow spot is. Maybe image stabilization should be standard on camera phones now.

Thanks, Vitala!
