Motorola XT300 leaks, it’s a portrait slider and runs Android
Motorola’s intentions in the mobile space seem to be quite clear: bet everything on Android. And it’s been working very well for them until now, so why not continue pushing smartphones running Google’s mobile OS?
Yet another upcoming Motorola handset powered by Android has leaked in the Far East. This is the XT300, it’s a portrait slider (like the Palm Pre) with a full QWERTY keyboard that looks very usable. It does, perhaps surprisingly, have the red eye boot logo previously seen in the Droid series of handsets for Verizon.
However, it’s not clear if it will be headed to Big Red, since it’s supposedly a GSM phone. Perhaps this will have both a CDMA and a GSM version, like the original Droid before it. Anyway, everything we have at this point are a few pictures and videos and a lot of speculation. The Droid brand has been used by Verizon for high-end handsets only, so that may change, or maybe someone just decided the red eye boot animation would be cute to have on pre-release software.
The camera seems to be 3.2 Megapixels, but it’s hard to be sure from these photos. If it is 3.2 MP, there’s yet another indication (along with the smallish screen size) that this is a midrange device at best.
One way or the other, I’m sure many more leaks will follow and we’ll have all the details on this handset very soon.
