Exclusive: Upcoming Motorola Sprint Android smartphone with QWERTY keyboard?
Motorola and Sprint Wireless testing a new Android smartphone with touchscreen + physical QWERTY keyboard.
After releasing the XPRT smartphone, Motorola and Sprint partnering again to create a new portrait QWERTY Android phone, according to a source familiar with the project.
According to the tipster, the next QWERTY Motorola smartphone is curvier compared to the Motorola XPRT (the overall form of the phone), and the phone will include an Android 2.3 Gingerbread out of the box.
We also asked for other new features of the new Sprint Moto phone, and the tipster added that the physical QWERTY keyboard of the unannounced phone was slightly modified, now with a “smile pattern,” compared to XPRT’s “ruler pattern.”
Update: We delayed publishing this post because we have decided to wait for an “evidence”, and luckily, we received one from the source who requested anonymity.
The photo shows a Sprint logo printed in the middle of the capacitive Android buttons and the physical keyboard. We also compared the intriguing phone from the Sprint Motorola XPRT and we are 100% sure that the phone photographed is not the XPRT. The tipster is also claiming that the phone could include 4G WiMax.
