Compal to make Motorolas

Taiwan's Compal Communications will manufacture two handsets for Motorola, codenamed the Atila and Alexander, according to a Friday report. More importantly, the report reveals that shipments of the phones will allegedly be delayed from the original fourth quarter of 2008 launch to the first quarter of 2009. Both cellphones will use the Windows Mobile operating system, support 3G data networks and have built-in Wi-Fi modules.

The quad-band Atila features an iPhone-like 2.8-inch, 240x320 touchscreen and includes the Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system. It will reportedly be Motorola's flagship handset.

The Alexander is believed to include a five- or eight-megapixel camera, as well as assisted GPS capabilities. It sports a full QWERTY keyboard behind its sliding top panel.

No pricing or detailed release information for North America is known about either handset.
