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.

  • I want this, hope it comes to US verizon
  • It seems likely that the majority of the MOTOROI’s specifications will make it over to the US, including the 8-megapixel camera, 720p HD video recording, 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen and high-speed GSM connectivity. However we expect Motorola to strip out the T-DMB digital TV tuner that the Korean market will enjoy
    More details:
  • What's with the back of the phone, or is that with the battery cover removed?
  • It's a security device, so if anyone tries to steal it an alarm will sound. And it the other looks like a mount so that it can sit on a special kind of stand.
  • nice reveiw, it looks good, i need this phone!!!
  • This looks like it will be coming to T-mo. Besides who cares about verizon you got the Devour coming up, stop being greedy. Lol
  • Why would I want the devour? Its only got 1.6 on it, this has 2.0 and it will get 2.1 for sure.
  • this should come for some gsm network and not some other network like verizon. verizon has those big DROID AND DEVOUR at&t and t-mobile may have this
  • Are you totally forgetting about the GSM N1?
  • But, but, ATT has POS iPhone no fairs hahaha.
  • Theres nothing special about the devour.. its just another clig in a different shape. now it would be nice if this would be a LTE device. :D
