Motorola launches Android-powered Ming A1680, MT810 and XT806 in China
Motorola has launched not one, not two, but three new Android smartphones in China, all part of the Ming series and all coming with “Ming styling” (thus being touchscreen devices with transparent flip covers): A1680, MT810 and XT806.
Motorola MT810 (aka Moto Beihai) is available via China Mobile and uses OPhone OS 2.0.
It features a 3.2 inch screen, TD-SCDMA, mobile TV, “a suite of pre-loaded intelligent business applications”, 720p HD video playback, and D1 (720 x 480) video recording.
Motorola XT806 (Qilin) runs Android 2.1 and is launched by China Telecom. It comes with CDMA/EVDO and GSM connectivity, 3.2 inch display, GPS, and HD (720p) video recording.
Made for China Unicom, the Motorola A1680 (also known as Moto Lucky 3G) features: 3.1-inch AMOLED display, WAPI, Wi-Fi, GPS, “a sixth-generation SoftStylus handwriting system”, access to Motorola SHOP4APPS, and 5MP camera.
All three Ming Android smartphones are designed specifically for China and they won’t be launched in other markets.
According to Motorola, “more than half the Android smartphones sold in China in the first half of 2010 were Motorola devices,” so these new Mings will probably sell well, too.
