Motorola VU30 info leaked
Images from an owner's manual for the Motorola VU30 have leaked on the web on Friday, revealing more information on the flip phone, which is coming to Verizon in the not too distant future. It is now known the 3G capable handset will be called the Rapture VU30 and sport a touch-sensitive external display. Unlike some other flip-phones, the dislpay will allow users to capture still images and videos via the 2.0-megapixel camera while the phone in its closed position.
As with other Motorola handsets, the CDMA/EVDO-capable VU30 will feature a microUSB connection for synching with computers and charging the lithium-ion battery. Other preliminary specs include a microSD card slot, Assisted GPS functionality and a dedicated 2.5mm headphone/headset jack.
There is still no word on launch dates or pricing information for the VU30, though an earlier leak suggested a mid-August release. [via PhoneArena]
