Some leaks on the internet recently indicate that Motorola is planning to release a new RAZR thin communicator running on Windows Mobile 5.0. The new device is code named Motorola Franklin, the name will probably change on release. The form factor of the Motorola Franklin is the same as some devices from HP and BlackBerry, but the Motorola device is smaller and lighter - just 112נ64נ12 mm and 115 g. The smaller size however can be a disadvantage with such a keyboard - quick calculation reveals that the keys are about 6.5 x 4.0 mm, typing on them can be a challenge.

Preliminary Motorola Franklin specs:

  • Quad-band GSM 850 / GSM 900 / GSM 1800 / GSM 1900
  • 112 64 12 mm, 115 g
  • TFT QVGA display - 320 240 pixels, 65K colors
  • 1.3 MP camera
  • GPRS Class 10, EDGE Class 6
  • 128MB flash, 64MB RAM memory
  • MiniSD card slot
  • Bluetooth, infrared
  • Stereo speakers
  • 1130 mAh battery, 8 days stand-by
