Motorola MT720 Targets China’s Business Users

We just happened to be checking out Motorola’s website this evening when we stumbled upon another Android-based handset.  You’re looking at the MT720, which is an OPhone flavored version of Android.  Somehow this model flew under our radar.  After a quick look around some of our favorite sites, everybody else seemed to have missed it, too.

As Motorola puts it, this smart phone targets China’s high-end business users and features a resistive touch screen for writing characters.  In terms of hardware, the MT720 is identical to the MT710 in every way.  In fact, the only difference we could find between the two is that the MT720 features Flash Lite in the browser whereas the other does not.  It also appears that the MT720 has some sort of a leather carry case/cover attached to the phone.

The meat and potatoes specs:

  • Marvell PXA310 624 MHZ processor
  • 256MB ROM, 256MB RAM
  • 3.7-inch” 480 x 854 (FWVGA) resistive touch screen
  • 5 megapixel camera w/ autofocus, dual LED flash
  • VGA secondary camera
  • OPhone 1.5
  • Ambient light sensor
  • Assisted GPS
  • Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR
  • 3.5mm headphone jack
  • CMMB mobile TV

We’d like to see Motorola, or any other handset maker, bring a resistive touch screen to the US, if not only to provide additional choices to potential customers.
