Major Handset announcements from Motorola at CTIA: Kodak phone, MotoMing 2, Rokr E10 and Moto Q10?
Since officially announcing it’s new and very late Motorola Z10 flagship at CES, Motorola has been very quiet about it’s new rumored handset line-up.
Although the leaks about the new, really cool Motorola handsets kept on coming, nothing was announced during a the biggest mobile show of the year – Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Actually, IMHO, Motorola’s booth and phone line-up at MWC2008, was one of the lamest among the major cellphone vendors.
I had a chance to ask one of Motorola VPs at MWC, why is that.
The answer was that they did not want to get lost among the flood of the new phone announcements at MWC, and decided to make their big announcements at CTIA Wireless on April 1-3 instead.
He also indicated that Motorola’s partnership with Kodak is pretty close to bearing some fruits, and that they certainly will have 5 megapixel camera phone soon and even go beyond that this year.
Today I came by an interesting video on YouTube with new Motorola phone line-up, which confirms some of the info above :
One of the really interesting things that caught my attention was this handset (about 32 seconds into a clip):
It is clearly a cameraphone, you can also see Kodak logo in the picture. It also seems to be a candybar with a new morphing keypad, first seen in Rokr E8 music phone. My guess – this is the new Motorola/Kodak 5 megapixel cameraphone.
And this one looks just like the Motorola A1600/ MotoMing 2 I told you in December:
There’s also Motorola Q9 Windows Mobile smartphone update with Windows Mobile 6.1 in it. Maybe – Motorola Q10?
And a new Music slider – MOTO ROKR E10?
Looks like Motorola is finally getting it’s act together with a pretty interesting new offers.
