Motorola leaks new phones

Motorola has unintentionally revealed four upcoming handsets by apparently posting them on their website ahead of an official announcement. Phones revealed in just such an uncommon fashion include the VE465 flip phone, the ZN300, QA4 Halo and VE66 Lux Edition. The VE465 is an entry-level handset with CDMA and EVDO network support, along with digital music playback capabilities and a 1.2-megapixel camera.

Little else is known about the other new handsets, including the ZN300 and QA4 Halo. Images of the latter's screen seem to confirm Internet widget support and application icons hint that the handset will sport a touchscreen. The display is believed to be 2.8 inches in size and sport a 400x240 resolution. An accelerometer is integrated, and the handset is also due to connect to CDMA and EVDO networks.

The Motorola VE66 Lux is expected to be a more luxuriant version of the current VE66 handset, though no specific differences from the plebian phone are known.

Pricing or release information is likewise unspecified, though more information is expected to surface at the Mobile World Congress in mid-February in Spain, if not sooner. [via UnwiredView]
