Motorola bringing 3G-ready MOTOMING to US?

updated 03:35 pm EDT, Wed June 20, 2007


An enhanced version of the MOTOMING phone, reportedly trustworthy sources claim. Demonstrated at the same event which revealed the RAZR2 and a popular phone choice for months in China and other areas where its handwriting-capable touchscreen were essential, an upgrade of the device is now said to be in the works with the addition of an HSDPA modem for 3G cellular broadband in the US as well as abroad. Added performance would also see video capture from the 2-megapixel camera improve to CIF resolution (352x288) while the menus would become livelier, according to the report.

Although the contact is currently unable to confirm when and at what cost the device would appear on American shelves, the inclusion of 850MHz GSM and HSDPA support makes it a likely candidate for AT&T's network, which uses both technologies for some calling areas and its 3G access, respectively. AT&T has allegedly expressed a desire for the phone in the past but abandoned its plans for unknown reasons. [via BGR]
