The first Android 2.0 handset to arrive is Korea will be Motorola’s “Motoroi“.Â Available exclusively through SK Telecom starting in early February, the Motoroi features an 8 megapixel camera, a 3.7-inch high-definition WVGA screen.Â Speaking of high-def, the handset also features 720p video recording andÂ HDMI output to play your HD videos directly to your HDTV.Â Â Â The cost of the phone ends up around 900,000 won, or $800 USD, which is right about the same price as the iPhone in South Korea’s market.
MOTOROI is a smart phone without compromise, delivering a wiser, richer web and messaging experience with the most delightful touch-interface you have ever experienced, all made possible through the combination of Motorolaâ€™s expertise in design, a truly differentiated Android experience, and the power of SK Telecomâ€™s network. – Sanjay Jha, CEO of Motorola Mobile Devices.
If the Motoroi looks a tad familiar to you, it’s because we’ve reported it previously as the Sholes Tablet/XT701.Â You guys feeling the hip on the side?
