Motorola Prototype Surfaces, Yet Another Form Factor

You have to give Motorola credit for not churning out the same handset over and over.  It’s simple to take the route of either a slab phone or sliding QWERTY, yet Motorola keeps coming up with various form factors for Android.  Take a look at the pictures below and you’ll see the first images of a Motorola phone which borrows a tad from the KRAVE ZN4 design.

According to Engadget China (translated), this unknown handset is in the prototype stage. Look really closely at the notification bar and you will see two network indicators. Does this mean it’s dual-SIM or dual-3G capable phone? It’s hard to say, but we’d like to learn more about it. Rumored specs peg the phone with a 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording. We can also see in one of the images that the phone has MOTOBLUR running under the hood. Could this be the v1.5 we saw in the recent Twist handset?

We’ll be keeping our eyes and ears open for more on this one so be sure to check back!

    Motorola is definitely back on stage and throughout these product launches, I hope they will keep up the good work, esp. to contribute the creation of the Android ecosystem.

    I had a zn4 that literally fell apart in my hand. Cool form factor, terrible real world product. I don't see the appeal of this compared to some of the new releases coming out in the near future

    Lock screen says Android 2.1. And there are a lot of A1200 lovers out there :)

    In a nutshell, he finds that interior defenders (safeties and inside linebackers) are much more likely to be done by age 30 than perimeter players (cornerbacks and outside linebackers).
