Great news for all those in the US who want a high-end Motorola Android smartphone but don’t like the Droid: it looks like the MOTOROI (announced yesterday in Korea) will be launched worldwide – the US included – starting March.
According to The Korea Herald, SK Telecom senior vice president Bae Joon-dong has confirmed the launch of MOTOROI in the US, while Rick Wolochatiuk (president of Motorola Korea) mentioned that the new Android handset will reach other countries, too.
Most probably, the MOTOROI will have a different name in the US – maybe Motorola Sholes Tablet?
Regardless of its name, the smartphone is one of the best Moto ever had, featuring a 3.7 inch WVGA touchscreen display, HSDPA, GPS, Wi-Fi, HDMI, 8GB of internal memory, and an 8MP autofocus camera with HD video recording. The price of Motorola MOTOROI for the US is not known at the moment.
A quick video preview of the Korean MOTOROI can be watched below:
In related news, Samsung, LG and Pantech all plan to launch Android phones in South Korea in the near future.
