Motorola Quench XT5 specs revealed, not quenching your thirst for Froyo

Specifications and an image of the Motorola Quench XT5 have trickled out, and it looks like another low- to mid-range handset that we'll love to hate.  Besides what you see in the picture above, the Quench XT5 will come running Eclair (Android 2.1), have 256 MB RAM and 523 MB of ROM, FM radio and DivX playback ability.  No word on processor speed.  One thing to note -- this doesn't appear to have any sort of NinjaPhilBlur, so you vanilla fans in Europe may be pleased with it.  Yes, Europe, as this appears to be the successor to the original Quench, so we expect it to hit Europe first --  and there's no word on a Cliq or Dext version just yet.  [CellPassion via Engadget]

  • Looks nice w/o ...Blur. Hey Moto, howsabout putting in a way to turn off ...Blur in the Froyo update to the X? Please? I'll give you my sister. Well if I had one that is.... I'll shut up now.
  • The specs sound like the D1. What size is the screen? If it's not locked down it could make a decent developer's phone.
  • Is it just me or does that look an awful lot like a droid eris?
  • Why did they switch around the buttons again? Make up your minds!
  • I'm OK with mid-range devices because I'm sure they'll have a market, but they should be priced accordingly. With the top tier Android devices going for around $199 (even $0.01 on "special") I'm thinkin these mid-ranged devices should start in the $50-$100 price range and even FREE on "specials". These mid-ranged devices are going to compete with the top flip and candy bar style phones. Man, eventually Android will RULE!! I like the FM radio feature but wish Android devices would imbed the HD Radio version of the chip vs. the regular static ridden analog FM radio. Even the Microsoft Zune has HD Radio FM.
