Motorola has been busy the last couple of days announcing Android smartphones for ATT and Verizon. Today it also announced the Motorola SPICE Android QWERTY phone for the world market. Here is more info on this upcoming Android smartphone from Motorola:
The Motorola SPICE is packaged with a curvy, rounded design on the outside. And on the inside it?s all Android. A full QWERTY slide-out keyboard, with a large, capacitive touchscreen with multi-touch support for text input, pinch-to-zoom and fluid flick navigation makes it super easy to send messages on the fly.
Easy Messaging with an Environmental Twist If the sign says curves ahead, you?re probably checking out the Motorola SPICE. With its attractive, rounded design and a vertical sliding QWERTY keyboard, it?s a smartphone that serves you smartly. It also is conscious of the environment by using 25% post consumer recycled plastics.
Simplify your Life and Communications Using multiple applications to check text messages, calls and calendar events can be time-consuming. But with Motorola?s exclusive Flashback application, you can now view and manage your phone communications and content all from a single application. Flashback keeps track of your call history, messages, calendar events and photos and videos, and maps them to a timeline.
Surf the Web at Ease Motorola SPICE offers a PC-like browsing experience with a full HTML browser. Enjoy your favorite Google services like Gmail and Gtalk, and stay on top of the latest social media updates with Facebook and YouTube widgets. And with BACKTRACK, the rear touch panel, you?ll be able to quickly and easily navigate and scroll through your favorite sites without obstructing your screen. Now that?s web surfing made easy...and mobile. And with thousands of downloadable applications from the Android Market, many of which are free.
The Motorola SPICE has a 3MP camera that lets you capture and playback video. Plus, all your videos and pictures will live in one convenient gallery that?s easy to scroll through and access from any PC ? no software required thanks to Moto Phone Portal. You?ll also enjoy an all-in-one music player that includes a music library, FM Radio, song recognition application and Music Store.
Motorola SPICE will be available in Q4 2010.
