We first heard of the Motorola Morrison when it leaked on T-Mobile’s 2009 Android Time Chart. Soon after we saw the first Motorola Morrison picture. But now, thanks to an anonymous phandroid tipster, we’re seeing the clearest picture of the Motorola Morrison to date:

(click to enlarge)

Apparently a Moto employee is already walking around with a working model and let this bad boy out of his sight a bit too long. Unlike the last picture of the Morrison, we can clearly see that Android is the OS.

Notice this blue beauty is emblazoned with the Motorola and T-Mobile logos, leaving no questions where it came from and where its going. This time around we can make out 3 distinct hardware buttons which previously were unidentifiable due to the white background – now Android makes a lot more sense. The buttons are (1) back, (2) home and (3) call/menu/action/something. It’ll be interesting to see how that last button with the 4 boxes functions considering the needs for “Call” and “Menu” both need to be addressed, unless done somehow or somewhere else.

Also of interest is that this version of the Motorola Morrison is black and blue as opposed to previous pics we’ve seen that showed a white and blue model:


This is normally where the corny black and blue joke would enter… but I decline. Its too much of a softball and what this means for Motorola is no joking matter. I really hope Android helps them return their handset division to glory.

If Motorola were to offer black and white versions with different interior colors like pink, green, orange, etc… they could really have a hit on their hands with the teen market. Of course it all depends on who they’re targeting, what the price range is and whether or not the phone works well. Hopefully we’ll find out in late 2009 as this sucker is supposed to hit for the holidays!
