Detailed Specs for the Motorola Charm

Charm-official

Not charmed with the Motorola Charm just yet? Maybe a look at the specs in detail will do a little to change your mind about this mid-range phone with full QWERTY keyboard. For all intents and purposes, the Charm sits nicely in with other phones in its range, but certain specs like a 600MHz Cortex-A8 based Texas Instrument OMAP 3410 with PowerVR SGX graphics and 512MB RAM easily sift this one to the top of its contemporaries. Here is a little bit more of what you can expect:

  • Support for Exchange, Gmail, IMAP, and POP3 email
  • Bluetooth 2.0 + ERD (A2DP, AVRCP, BPP, HID, HSP, OPP, PAN)

    I wish I could rip one open and stick its cortex-A8 processor in my Cliq XT. Instead, I’ll just save up for a Vibrant.

    That’s not detailed.

    i didnt think i would care for a phone having the blackberry style outlay but man, it has better specs then my OG G1… sigh….. i’ll be patiently waiting for the project Emerald.

    Do not buy motorola phones with motoblur. Motorola has proven they will not deliver timely updates, especially if your carrier’s name does not start with V. Do yourself a favor and stick with stock Android on HTC.

    What about screen resolution? Other supports say QVGA which would mean 320×240. That’s probably the only spec here I couldn’t live with… don’t want to take a step down from my Palm’s 320×320. Form factor is right though.

  • Alex

    Aaron, HTC phones for the most part do not use stock android, so I have no idea what you are talking about.

    Back to topic: I would never think I would like the looks of this phone, but I do! I think it will be good for people transferring over form blackberry of winmo. I personally would never get one (want Droid X) but for people who like this kind of form factor, I think this phone is a real win.

    I real like this phone. I am using a crackberry 8330 right now and I am so tired of it I don’t think blackberry has anthing going for them now a days personal saying the phones that are hot right now is the iphone and anything running android these days. My service provider is MetroPCS and I have bine thinking about leaving them and going to T-moble and if I do the Motorola Charm is the phone I am getting!!!!
