Square Motorola Device Codenamed “Twist”, Due in June
The square Motorola device that hit the internet late last week via a (pulled) DroidDog article has some truth to it. We’re ready to move beyond the outlandish backstory and on to the details. Are you ready? Ok, so the phone is codenamed ‘Motorola Twist’ and it’s slated to arrive in June. From the sounds of it, this will be a compact, niche handset targeted at staying connected. Android-france was able to get their hands on what looks like an internal Motorola document (translated) that fleshes out some of the goodies associated with the phone.
Hardware specs include:
- Android 2.1 (Flash) with 1.5 Motoblur
- OMAP 3410 700MHz
- 512 MB ROM
- 256 RAM
- WCDMA / HSPA: 850/1900, GSM / EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900
- microSD card slot
- 2.8-inch 320×240 screen QVGA
- 3 megapixel camera
- Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi
- 3.5 mm Headphone Jack
- Browser with Flash support and multi-touch
- 940 mAh battery
We’re anxious to see what Motorola has in store for Motoblur, 1.5 if anything. Judging by the picture of the phone, we expect to see widgets to allow one-touch access to turning off WiFi, Bluetooth, etc. It’s hard to picture a radically different experience this early on. Our guess is that it’s subtle add-ons a la HTC’s Sense UI update.
