Motorola Motoroi Sails To UK With Android 2.1 On Deck


According to Pocket-lint, the Motorola Motoroi – the curvy looking Android phone that could come with MOTOBLUR – is confirmed to be headed to the United Kingdom in some fashion being driven be Android 2.1. Previously, we’ve only heard that it was going the United States (outside of its already-furnished home in South Korea with SK Telecom), but Motorola confirmed the new territory during the launch event for the Android-powered XT701 in Taiwan.


This version of the Motoroi rocks an 8-megapixel camera, 720p video recording capabilities, an HDMI port, and so much more. It’s said that this version of the phone will differ internally, as well, as we should be seeing more RAM, ROM, and a faster processor (Snapdragon?) to boot. With as many changes as it’s getting, we’re wondering if this thing will get a name of its own (Pocket-Lint doesn’t seem too sure, either) but hopefully more details surface from Motorola soon.

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.

LG Ally Preorder Coming May 13th?
