Exclusive: First Look at Metro PCS's Motorola Phone

We just told you guys about a rumored Android 2.1 phone headed for Metro PCS yesterday and we’re back with pics to prove it.  A source of ours came through with four images of the new Motorola handset which bears a passing resemblance to the T-Mobile Cliq. 

The specs we broke yesterday stay the same – Android 2.1/MOTOBLUR powered by a 600MHz processor and a 3-megapixel camera.  On top of that we can now see it’s a 4-row sliding QWERTY with a somewhat odd looking button setup.  The circle surrounding the homescreen could possibly double as a directional pad for all I know.  Given Motorola’s penchant for unique form factor I wouldn’t put it past them.  The keyboard itself isn’t too remarkable aside from the addition of a “.com” button on the bottom row.  I’m guessing the screen size to be around 3.1-inches or 3.2-inches based on the Cliq-ish design.

Personally I’m glad to see Motorola continue to push out a new form factor each and every time.  Although this phone is highly unlikely to win any awards it could still be a bargain given MetroPCS’s $50 all-you-can-eat plans.

Of course we’ll be more than happy to share anything else we can get our hands on as it pertains to this, and any other phone.
