Adding to the list of Android phones headed to South Korea, the ever-faithful Motorola Droid (aka Milestone) is landing south of the Demilitarized Zone carrying a new name tag. The Motorla QRTY is the same phone you’d expect minus one sizable difference: the hardware keyboard now features Korean characters. We are assuming it gets its new name from the QWERTY keyboard, regardless of which language is on the keys.

Unlike the Nexus One, which recently launched in Korea with Android 2.2 before an OTA update hit current owners of the handset, the QRTY will not be privy to an early release of Froyo for the Droid. Hope of an updated OS aside, the phone is now available through SK Telecom.
