So What Is The Motorola Charm Packing Inside?

Just a brief update to yesterday’s post showing off the first image of the Motorola Charm in the wild to add in some rumored specs.  The Motorola Charm will be released with Android 2.1 and it packs a 600mhz processor with 512 ROM and 512 RAM.  What we originally thought was a 3” screen turns out to be 2.8” and we hope that the .02” doesn’t make a huge difference in your purchasing decision.  Unfortunately, our source did update us with some unfortunate news on the screen, comparatively low quality QVGA if the information received was accurate.  Sporting Android 2.1 with a modified version of Blur, it will include resizable widgets. We’re also hearing it’ll be touted as a lower end Android device despite having specs similar to more mid ranged Android devices in the T-Mobile lineup.  Our source did want to state that the phone was incredibly pocket friendly and should definitely be coming in at an attractive price point which matches up with our information perfectly.

    Once this phone comes out tmobile will rollout the 2.1 update for the cliq.

    I think specs are right for a low-end phone. Let’s face it, mid-range devices have better screens, processors and internal storage nowadays.

    I hope the arrival of this phone means my CLIQ XT will get 2.1 soon. I might also pick this up as a back-up phone its not too bad for a low end device.

    To be quite honest, I’m in love with this device.
    The “unique” form-factor really has me reminiscing on some days of glory with past BlackBerry handsets and the T-Mobile Dash.

    i still think physically, this will look better in person. however i don’t care much since i wont be buying it [i'm sure the phone will make so many people happy though]

    .02 does not seem right… .2 seems right to me?

  • cellswag05

    I feel real bad for you guys that are hoping for the cliqxt to get 2:1 the phone is finished.

    • William

      I get that feeling to. It’s why I recently picked up the MyTouch Slide. HTC seems to have a better record on getting it’s products updated. Even if they don’t, XDA will. :-)

  • pororo

    I hope this phone has shortcuts like the Blackberry. If it does, it will be a pretty good messaging phone.

  • TMOprophet

    low-end indeed, whatever….should make someone happy, just not for me.

    I also hear that the Motorola Charm has a 600mhz processor, compared to the 528mhz on the cliq and cliqxt. It also has 512 megs of ram opposed to the cliq/xt’s 256.

    So those aspects are in fact better. Not to mention it DOES have android 2.1.

    So yeah, while the screen isn’t fantastically huge and the camera is just a “meh” resolution, as long as the price is decent, it will be a great phone.

      I really dig the form. i hope its the same internals as the Flipout, if so that 600mhz processor(omap3410) is the same on thats in droid. granted at a slightly higher clock and minus the graphics core. and as for the screen, qvga is usable with android. i have the tattoo and after a hack from xda to show all of the market apps it was fine. my biggest issue with that screen is trying to type…. i fat finger letters constantly.

  • Ned flanders

    This looks like a good device,has good specs. This isnt something i would own but I think it will sell well.

  • dans

    And now the Cliq XT is listed as being free with new service and the original Cliq is $149??? What’s going on over in T-Mobile land?

  • Mog

    Compared to the BlackBerry Curve 8520, the Charm features a larger (and, oh yeah, touch-sensitive) screen, a better camera, a faster processor, and it’s still cheaper, too! An Android phone at a Curve price is pretty impressive, any way you slice it. I mean, it’s lined up with a bunch of cheap Samsung dumbphones in that “free for back to school” ad.

    I really wish we were getting the Flipout, but the Charm is charming enough. It’s basically a Flipout XT.

    I LOVE candybars. Had a Moto Q on VZW before my dash 3G on T-Mo. Love that too. Not too hip on Android, but I like this form factor. Heard it has a navi-pad on the back. Only a 3.6 MHz radio though. Arggh. Hope they come out with a nice snapdragon version with HSPA+ radio, kick-ass screen and camera and maybe Froyo or Gingerbread on it by the time I’m up for renewal. Might defect from WinMo to Android by then if this all pans out.
