20 to 30 Motorola Android smartphones coming this year?
Today, while launching the Moto Dext in Singapore, Motorola talked a bit about its plans for 2010.
CNET Asia was at the Dext launch event and interviewed Spiros Nikolakopoulos, vice president of Motorola Asia’s Mobile Devices unit.
Mr. Nikolakopoulos declared that Motorola wants to release 20 to 30 Android smartphones by the end of this year (probably including the Motorola Shadow, MOTOROI and Motorola BackFlip). Some of these upcoming smartphones will be available only in local markets, which might mean that the 20 to 30 estimated number includes slightly different versions of the same model (like the Dext and the Cliq).
Now let’s hope that most of the new Moto Android handsets will have multi-touch, as rumored not long ago.
As for non-smartphones, Motorola will continue to launch them, too – and they will be based on either Brew, or on the company’s own operating system.
