Motorola Motoroi Coming To The US, Wait What?!

Huh? It looks like we, the United States of America, will be able to feel the 'bump' of the Motoroi too? Um, huh? Just yesterday, we had reported that the Motorola Motoroi would be the first Motorola Android device in South Korea and we fully expected it to stay in the Far East like other Motorola Android devices. But it looks like we were wrong. Hooray?

According a SK Telecom Exec:

"The Motoroi is a different model from the Droid, and it will be launched in the United States around March," Bae Joon-dong, senior vice president of SK Telecom, said at a press conference.

And a Motorola Exec:

"The product will be launched in other markets around the world," Rick Wolochatiuk, president and representative director of Motorola Korea, said.

On one hand, the Motoroi packs some really impressive specs (8mp camera, 720p video recording, HDMI out). But on the other, it's kind of ugly and certainly not the most ideal Droid successor (in terms of style). We have some faith though, the China-only Motorola Android devices we saw at CES we're of really high build quality and we walked away really impressed. Maybe we'll fall in love with the bump like we did the chin?
