Say hello to the Motorola Calgary, Verizon's other Android phone in the works. We've seen it before, albeit in a much more glamorous light, but this Motorola Android device is reported to pack MOTOBLUR, something not available on the Droid. It looks like Verizon is positioning itself to offer two different Android experiences--the high end, iPhone 3GS-competitor in the Droid and the lower end, featurephone replacement in the Calgary.
The picture above shows that the Calgary has 3 touch-sensitive buttons along with an optical joystick. It's a QWERTY-slider device so keyboard fanatics won't lose their buttons. BGR reports that the Calgary will also have a 3-megapixel camera, 3.5mm headphone jack, Wi-Fi, GPS, and microSD.
To us, the picture of the Calgary looks like a prototype. We're betting that Motorola will add a bit more flair to the commercial release. With that said, it looks like Verizon and Android are going to be sitting in a tree this holiday season. We can't wait.
What do you guys think? Anyone interested in the Calgary? Or will it be all Droid?
