Motorola Charm was officially unveiled last week as T-Mobile USA’s first Android phone with a vertical QWERTY keypad. In the press release announcing the new handset, Motorola only said that the Charm would be available “this summer.”
Now we’re hearing that the Charm’s launch date might be August 25 – which, according to TmoNews, is a delay from the initially planned release date.
The alleged delay seems to be caused by “an issue with battery life.” It has also been reported that T-Mobile will provide extended batteries for the Moto Charm – does this mean that the original 1170 mAh battery is too weak to power the handset properly? And, if that’s the case, will customers have to pay for the extended batteries? We’ll hopefully find out more soon.
We still don’t have details on how much the Motorola Charm will cost, but T-Mobile is likely going to sell the new Android 2.1 phone at a low price.
