If a slide posted to the PPCGeeks forum is both legitimate and accurate, then T-Mobile customers have two pretty nifty smartphones headed their way next month in the HTC HD2 and Motorola CLIQ XT. The HD2, a device we’re positive that anyone who at least occasionally frequents this site is well-versed on, is said to drop on March 10th with the CLIQ XT two weeks later on March 24th. What on earth is the CLIQ XT? Apparently it’s the Zeppelin, the physical-keypad shunning, pure touchscreen alternative to the somewhat maligned CLIQ. Still not getting it? Well, we did see it in the silicon the other day. The question is: Will we actually see it and the HD2 with T-Mobile branding next month? More →
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 →
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?
