A leak document picked up by SprintFeed suggests that Sprint will launch the Motorola Titanium, an Android smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard, on July 24th for $149.99. The Titanium is no secret as Motorola officially announced it in May, but the company didn’t provide pricing or launch details at that time. The phone supports push-to-talk and offers a military-grade ruggedized design that’s resistant to dust, shock, vibration, low pressure, solar radiation, high temperatures, and low temperatures. It’s equipped with a 3.1-inch touchscreen display and a 5-megapixel camera, but sadly only runs Android 2.1 (Eclair). The price and date aren’t official just yet, but $149.99 sounds about right to us. More →

Rumor and speculation abound as an unknown Motorola world phone has been spotted at the FCC. The handset includes CDMA 800/1900, GSM/GPRS 850/900/1800/1900, EV-DO Rev. A, standalone GPS, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and WiFi 802.11b/g. This particular feature set suggests that the phone is a smartphone, not a feature phone. It is also reasonable to assume that this is another Android handset as Motorola has embraced Android as its smartphone platform of choice. The phone is identified by the codename “Titanium” in the FCC documents but may in fact be the Zeppelin. The Zeppelin was revealed by digi.QQ.com to be a dual-sim CDMA/GSM phone slated for China. Digging deep into this initial rumor uncovers the suggestion that the Zeppelin may be codenamed the Titanium. Zeppelin = Titanium = our mysterious FCC phone, which is headed to China and not the US. Case closed?
