AC @ MWC: Video of the Motorola Motoroi (XT720), Koreas first Android 2.0

The Motorola Motoroi's been intriguing ever since it first leaked out of the depths of wherever such leaks come from. But in getting your hands (and watching the hands of a lovely Motorola representative) on the device, you really get a sense that despite a few obvious cues taken from the Motorola Droid, the Motoroi really isn't a keyboardless Droid.

For one, it lacks the hard lines of the Droid. You're not going to be shaving or cutting cheese or any of the other tricks we lick to pull. It actually, when in portrait landscape (sideways) orientation, has more of the feel of a digital camera. And that's part of the idea, Motorola says. And having an 8-megapixel camera and xenon (read: nuclear) flash only drives that point home. Toss in the multimedia capabilities powered by that TI OMAP processor at 600MHz, and you have the makings of a darn good device. Let's hope it comes to the U.S. soonest.

Enough chatter. Let's check out the video after the break.

  • Wait... isn't LANDSCAPE sideways?
  • That's what I thought... C'mon, Verizon! Bring this thing to us! I'd buy it if I could use it in the US!
  • Bring it to sprint too! I have them and all I am missing is a truly great phone.
  • 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. Details: Those finger smudges on the video is a real Turn Off for geeks.. lol
  • sideways is landscape..vertical is portrait.
  • Yeah, that's what I thought.
  • lol. If you'd had the week I've had ...
  • Nice phone , Like it so much better than the Droid !!! I am sure T-Mobile will get this 1st , and I will buy this for the wife as I have the Nexus One . Cant wait to get this !!!
  • Please, where can Droid users (or any other Android handset user) get those green and blue soft keys next to the app tray??!! It HAS to be possible to get them somehow!
  • whoooooooooooo!
  • Guys, this is already confirmed to be a T-Mobile exclusive here in the USA. Seems to pack some serious improvements over the Verizon Droid, including a 8MP camera and HDMI port.
