Motorola Calgary (Verizon’s Second Android Phone) in the Wild
Here we go again.Â The Boy Genius Report has the first “in the wild” shots of the Motorola Calgary handset, headed for Verizon.Â Presumed to be arriving later this year, the phone looks very much like a less expensive, little brother to the Droid. Like T-Mobile’s CLIQ, this handset will have MOTOBLUR as the user interface.
We have to admit that we’re not big fans of the keyboard.Â What appears very cheap and basic has plenty of wasted space.Â Let’s hope this is not the finished product.Â On the other hand, this could be the kind of sacrifice needed in order to bring about sub-$100 Android phones.Â There is no indication as the price or launch date but you can bet it’s right around the corner.
A few specs gathered by BGR include:
- Three touch-sensitive Android keys on the display
- Optical joystick
- QWERTY keyboard
- 3 megapixel camera
- 3.5mm headset jack
- GPS, accelerometer, WiFi, microSD card slot
- Spring-assisted slider

LG’s new powerhouse device, the Star.Ahh, LG. They’ve made some decent Android handsets in the last year or so. There was the Ally for Verizon, that E720 we caught a glimpse of in Poland, and most recently, the Optimus series on Tmobile, Verizon, and Sprint. But they never really excelled at Android. They haven’t made us look at one of their devices and say “wow!” Well, that’s about to change. Meet the LG Star, a leaked device that’s likely coming out in Q1 of next year.
