Motorola announces MOTOSURF A3100 and MOTO W233 Renew

Big day today for Motorola: the American company has just announced two new phones, one of which is the full-touchscreen device previously known as Motorola Attila.

The final name of Attila is MOTOSURF A3100. Sure, we knew about the A3100 part before, but now it’s all official.

Motorola presents the MOTOSURF as a “touch tablet”, saying that it’s the perfect handset for managing both your social and your work life.

The handset runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 and comes with a homescreen that can be easily personalized.

Here’s how the A3100 officially looks like:


The smartphone’s features include:

  • A 2.8 inch TFT touchscreen display
  • GSM and HSDPA connectivity
  • An omni-directional trackball
  • GPS and A-GPS
  • Wi-Fi
  • Facebook integration
  • A 3 MP camera with autofocus
  • Video call camera
  • MicroSDHC card support, up to 32GB

“We developed the MOTOSURF A3100 as a true social smartphone. Home screen personalization and access to a whole host of applications gets the info you want – fast, and at your fingertips,” declared John Cipolla, senior vice president, product development, Motorola Mobile Devices.

Starting this quarter, MOTOSURF A3100 will be commercially available in “multiple regions” around the world (Latin America and Asia included). No pricing details yet, but those curious to see the smartphone live will be able to do so during CES 2009. 

The second new handset is MOTO W233 Renew, a device that has a plastic housing built from recycled water bottles. The simple candybar is also “the world’s first carbon neutral phone” and it comes in a box that’s 100% made from post-consumer recycled paper.


Feature-wise, the W233 offers CrystalTalk technology, messaging capabilities and up to 9 hours of talk-time.

As we’ve said before, MOTO W233 Renew will first hit T-Mobile USA, sometime during this quarter, for an affordable price.
