"The MOTOROI is an upgraded version of China Telecom's exclusive Motorola XT701 that was introduced in December 2010."
Let me know what this weeks lotto numbers are if you can see the future like that gsmarena. Haaaa!!!! You really need to fix that typo.
wow! Never expected moto to come up with some like this!... amazin!.. ALL dat features in 10.9mm??? double AMAZIN!! ... i used to hate moto, but ever since that 'milestone' happnd, tings hav changed... and now, this one is like what i have been waiting for YEARS!!
Best camera quality from Motorola yet? Better than ZN5? Anyway, well done, Moto!
I think there's a typo in the article - December 2009 not 2010 ;-)
Note that the model mentioned is an UPGRADE of the China-only model.
This one here is for the Korean market.
Korea used to have tough laws regarding what phone company can make and sell in the country. Basically, the government allowed the home companies like LG and Samsung (then there are Korea-only brands like SKY and other what-nots) and they got really, really advanced in Korea. The companies basically weren't encouraged to use Symbian, WiMo etc etc OSes (ie smartphones) and alas you rarely see smartphones here.
...Until RECENTLY the government decided to free-up some frequency to allow a SIM-based network... Being a Korean immigrant in New Zealand, and being in Korea for a long overdue trip, I've brought my W980 along and it catches a GSM network. Hmm... Korea only used to have WCDMA running the EVDO standard only 5 or so years back... They still do, just that there is a GSM network now.
Korea released the iPhone 3GS a year or so late than the rest of the world, and now Western companies see Korea as the perfect start point of selling their newest and greatest phone. I mean, it's a market saturated desperate for other brands.
Being in Korea, I've seen Nokia 5800 ads at the local subway (again, a year late), and have even noticed Sony Ericsson selling the X1 here (a few years late that).
I mean, it's great since it allows for more competition, but then it seems the competition was greater with just 3 or 4 local companies than the brands from all across the globe trying to take a pitch.
This Moto for example. The latest example of a smartphone after the X1 and iPhone. Would love to see how things turn out here...
They're releasing too many expensive phones. Release something regular people can afford please, as they are the ones which buy the most. They're the reason Nokia is so powerful and successful.
Anonymous, 18 Jan 2010wellcome to 8mp moto well done Agree, welcome 8mp camera MOTO, somebody knows if this is KODAK?
hehe....if I told you, a year ago that motorola will have the most and the best high end android devices, you would tell me that I am crazy :)
Can a capacitive device really handle handwriting recognition like they say? I've never heard of capacitive devices that can.
I believe there's an err0r on the 2nd paragraph ab0ut the date.
Well, its just the same old brand new product.
