Motorola announces three new handsets, one you might care about

Motorola took the wraps off three of its latest handsets early this morning, though as is often the case for the struggling handset maker – the wraps were hardly on. The first handset, Renew W233, was first leaked some time ago and fully uncovered last week. We know it’s coming to T-Mobile early next month and judging from the response the handset has received thus far, few will be waiting for its arrival. The second handset, Tundra VA76r, was revealed on its way to AT&T back in December and also sparked little interest. Those with a unique need for a rugged handset may find it interesting but it’ll hardly be jumping off AT&T’s shelves to start the new year. Finally, we have the SURF A3100, which you might recognize by its codename “Atila”. Yep, we pretty much scooped it like a sundae back in August and while it hardly received the reception of it’s soon-to-be-announced QWERTY brother Alexander, it is a sexy little handset provided you can see your way past the stylus. The SURF is no slouch, boasting tri-band 3G, a 3 megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, aGPS and more, but it’s hard to get excited about it when we’ve already moved on to anticipate the flurry of handsets we scooped last month. Hit the jump for press shots of the Tundra and Renew.
