Motorola's Android smartphone details leak

With Motorola poised to launch its first Android smartphones this fall, leaked technical specifications suggesting the devices will offer significant advantages over earlier Android handsets. The specs, first published by the Android and Me blog, detail two new Android phones, codenamed the Morrision and the Sholes--the former, reportedly earmarked for T-Mobile USA, will run on a 528 MHz Qualcomm processor, and offer 256 MB of RAM. This device will feature an HVGA screen than slides aside to reveal a qwerty keyboard as well as a 5 megapixel camera complete with auto-focus, geotagging and video recording--in addition, the Morrison will target enterprise customers via support for QuickOffice v2. Other bells and whistles include an accelerometer, magnetometer, proximity sensor, and ambient light sensor.

The Motorola Sholes, said to be Verizon Wireless' first Android smartphone, will reportedly focus on gaming and multimedia features, and will boast a series of UI enhancements--perhaps most notable, the device will run on the Android 2.0 OS. Android and Me also notes the Sholes will feature a Texas Instruments OMAP3430 600 MHz processor, a 3.7-inch touchscreen, 5-megapixel camera, GPS and WiFi.
