Motorola CHARM

Last updated: Nov 16th, 2010.

The Motorola CHARM is the very first candybar QWERTY Android phone to hit the scene. This phone finally gives those last Blackberry users that are on the fence about Android to give it a shot.

The Motorola CHARM is not a powerhouse by any means, but it is the perfect option for people that are looking for a small form factor with a touchscreen and a full QWERTY keyboard. Onboard you'll find a 3MP camera that won't worky any wonders but certainly snaps decent photos. Add to that the social capabilities of MOTOBLUR and you've got a nice, compact and capable messaging Android phone.

The Motorola CHARM is exclusive to T-Mobile.
