Motorola MT820 Transforms Into The MT810, Flip Form Factor Explained


Some new details about Motorola’s latest Android offering has turned up over the weekend. The Motorola MT820 – which seems to have undergone a name change as it’s now known as the Motorola MT810 – will remain a China-exclusive device, for the time being, and for good reason.


The flip cover part of the phone has finally been explained: it acts as a capacitive touch layer, while opening the phone will expose a resistive screen. The technology enables Chinese writers to get the precision of a stylus and the usability of their finger in the same device. Other details were to be had, too.

The phone will capture 720p video, sport a still camera that takes photos with a minimum of 5-megapixels, and an LED flash to help it all along the way. A short promotional clip has also been spotted, too, emphasizing mobile TV (which is gaining insane popularity in certain Asian regions lately). We’ll bring you more information on the device as they inevitably become available over time.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Cool idea I guess.
    Kinda like the MS Courier idea but less efficient.

  2. horrible product design. can we kill the flip-phone already? they’re all a cheap piece of junk.

  3. This is a pretty innovative way to give the ability to write Chinese characters (with the stylus) while still being able to use multi-touch. I would worry about the accuracy of the flip cover alignment with the screen, it better be a tight fit.

  4. It looks interesting.

    Kinda like the old Star Trek.

  5. i love that song, its the world cup official anthem, obviously with the guy watching the world cup, but they could at least put the flipcover like the backflip, put it behind the phone and flip the cover on when people want to use the capacitive screen.
