AC @ MWC: Hands-on with the Motorola Motoroi (XT720), Korea's first Android 2.0

Here it is, folks. The Motorola Motoroi, aka the XT720, aka the first Android 2.0 device released for the Korean market. At first blush you get the feel that it's a kindler, gentler Droid without a keyboard. But get the XT720 in your hand and you find that they don't have the same feeling in the slightest. No sharp angles, and the bump on the side is hardly noticeable.

The XT720 sports an 8-megapixel camera with Xenon flash, the better to blind your friends with. It records video at 720p and can output through an HDMI connector on the top of the phone, next to the 3.5mm headphone jack. The 3.7-inch screen dominates the face and makes you wonder why you'd ever think about settling for a smaller screen. We're still hoping to see this beast on T-Mobile at some point. More pics after the break.
