Motorola has announced the MT917 Android smartphone, which will be an TD-SCDMA exclusive for China Mobile. The phone's highlights are a 1280 x 720 4.5-incher (~330 ppi), a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, 1 gig of RAM, 13 MP camera (capable of 1080p video capture) on the back, and speaking of which, the back is made of Kevlar just like on the RAZR.
The phone is due to launch mid-December on China Mobile's network and there's no word on global availability just yet.
The phone is among the slimmest around with a 8.5 mm profile (not quite as slim as the RAZR, though) and will offer a scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass display, Kevlar fiber back, zinc frame and splash resistant coating on the inside and out. It will come with Android 2.3 Gingerbread but hopefully will offer ICS some time post-launch.
We'll be eagerly awaiting a global GSM variant of the MT917, that will enter the elite among 720p-bearing phones and, hopefully, have a non-cyborg name to go along with it too.
nice specs, but i wonder if the parts are quality stuff. but considering where they are being made and selling I'm sure its not top shelve stuff.
you people are funny! i bet most of you saying "wtg"m "ftw" and all other praises just because of the camera. i'm sorry to break your excitement. in technological matters devices are in competition. sure 13megapixels first of moto...
Moto good but battery performance not good...
