The expected comeback of Motorola will begin next year, when more than 20 mobile phone models could be released. One of the interesting models that we have information is the Droid one, a model that could battle with iPhone, Xperia, N97 or other successful known models.
I don’t even remember last time when Motorola took the market by surprise and release a new model(perhaps was RAZR). The new Droid is something we expected from other companies, but let’s face the reality and give Motorola the credit for what they’ve done.
As the name mention, phone will come with Google Android and with little help from Verizon, the smartphone market will adopt a new model.
Construction is nice, solid(plastic+metal) and the phone weights 165 grams which is pretty normal since it supports a very comfortable QWERTY keyboard and a big 3.7-inch touchscreen. The display supports a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels and under it four capacitive buttons: back, menu, home and search.
Sliding the phone on the right will unveil a nice QWERTY keyboard. Whether you will use it for text-messaging, emails or social networks the clicky buttons will help you a lot. The 5-way navigation key could not miss on this Android model and is situated in right side of the keyboard.
The camera, situated on the back is a 5 megapixel device and comes with autofocus, dual LED flash, geo-tagging, image stabilization. Videos are recorded at a 720 x 480 resolution with 24fps.
As we mentioned the Droid model comes with Google Android OS(v 2.0) and his processor is an Arm Cortex A8(same as iPhone 3G S) at 550Mhz. The RAM memory has 256 Mb while the ROM one has 512 Mb.
Connectivity offers usual features such as: GPRS, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, microUSB port. On the top of the phone is situated a 3.5mm jack port and also there is a power/sleep button. Gps is available through A-Gps support, but we don’t know further informations about the programs that can help you use it.
In the box phone comes with a Li-Ion standard battery with 1400 mAh and capable of 350h in stand by or almost 7 hours in talk time mode.
Motorola claims the new smartphone will be released in 2010, so we’ll have to wait a little more to see if it breaks through or not.
