Despite the promise of a whole host of expensive smartphones, Motorola is not ignoring the budget sector as it has announced the forthcoming launch of the A1210 mobile phone.
Reported to be the sequel to the Ming handset, the new A1210 is presented in a similar flip chassis. To be run on a Linux operating system and powered by a TI OMAP850 processor, the mobile features a large, 2.8 inch, TFT touchscreen that packs in 240 x 400 pixels.
Observers say that the phone also includes a built in camera. The specification is a reasonable 3-megapixels. Entertainment is supplied, according to the Mobile Whack website, via a FM radio whilst short range wireless connections can be made via the Bluetooth facility to accessories such as a headset. The A1210 will arrive with 64MB of memory but there will be a microSD slot included to increase the memory size.
There have been no reports relating to a UK release date or a UK price.
