Motorola XT860 4G to be launched by Bell on August 9?
Not long ago, Bell has officially announced that it would release the Motorola XT860 4G in Canada sometime “this summer.” Now Mobile Syrup claims to have the handset’s exact launch date, and that’s August 9 (next week).
There is still no word on the smartphone’s price from Bell, but it shouldn’t be more than $150 with a new 3-yr contract agreement.
The XT860 4G is the Canadian version of Verizon’s Motorola Droid 3, and comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 5-row sliding QWERTY keyboard, 4 inch qHD (960 x 540) display, 8MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, 1.3MP front-facing camera, and a dual-core 1GHz processor.
The Motorola XT860 4G will be included in Bell’s “superphone” category, where customers can currently find the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G, the Motorola Atrix 4G, and the HTC Sensation 4G (all three being dual-core Android devices).
