A new report says that Verizon may release in the future a Motorola handset similar to the XT1058 (rumored AT&T XFON), suggesting that a CDMA Google X Phone may be launched alongside a GSM version…
Motorola this morning officially unveiled the CHARM, another MOTOBLUR device for T-Mobile USA. This time, however, the phone is running Android 2.1 and sports a new form factor.
While Moto and T-Mobile have not announced pricing, and have only said that it is expected to be available “this summer,” we expect the phone to come in at a low price point for an Android smartphone due to its component selection. It features only a 2.8-inch capacitive touchscreen display with a QVGA (320 x 240 pixel) resolution. That’s quite a step down from the 5 megapixel camera on the CLIQ, with its larger 320 x 480 pixel display. If we’re lucky, we might see the CHARM as low as $50 on contract, but I expect that somewhere closer to $100 is more likely considering the CLIQ’s $149.99 current price tag.
More photos and the full spec sheet are available after the jump.
