The Motorola XT806 is bound for China and is one of the few remaining flip phones - but it's no ordinary flip phone. It runs Android, has dual-mode CDMA/GSM support and captures 720p videos with its 5MP camera.
A feature that is very important to Chinese customers is the handwriting recognition, which suggests a resistive display. But if it's like the Motorola MT810, it might have capacitive touch functionality too.
The Motorola XT806, like the other MING phones puts a new spin on the old flip form factor. The flip is transparent and you can see the display underneath. On the MT810 it served as a capacitive digitizer and rumor has it that it even turns the display into a 3D capable unit. There's no info on whether the flip on the XT806 can do those things, though.
Anyway, the Motorola XT806 screen is a 3.6" TFT unit with 854x480 pixels resolution. The Motorola XT806 is powered by a 600MHz TI OMAP 3430 running Android (version unknown). It's primarily a CDMA2000 device for China Telecom but it does support GSM/GPRS/EDGE too - though chances of seeing it travel West are low.
The Motorola XT806 supports Wi-Fi, but lacks GPS. The 5 MP camera comes with auto-focus and the aforementioned 720p video recording.
The Motorola XT806 is not official yet, so some features might change or new ones get added (here's hoping for the capacitive/3D display thingy).
I have one of these and it does have GPS. It is a great phone!! I really like it and it works well even here in Australia once you work out how to change all the language options to english.. which was quite simple. It was not network locked when I b...
