Motorola Motus Landing On T-Mobile?


Ah yes its that time again. The rumor mill is churning! Above you will see what is rumored to be T-Mobile’s second Motorola Android device with MOTOBLUR. NOTHING has been confirmed so please take this as a very small grain of salt, in other words: its a rumor. The guys over at AndroidandMe have received specs for the “Motus” from an anonymous tipster. And guess what? According to the specs, this handset supports T-Mobile’s AWS 3G network. The handset appears to be closely related to the Motorola Cliq that debuted November 2nd. What sets this handset apart from the Cliq is the outer design. It features a reverse flip keyboard and a rear directional touchpad. For those of you that have no clue what a reverse flip keyboard is, it’s basically a keyboard on the back of the phone (when it is closed). And the rear directional touchpad is supposed to be a crazy touchpad on the back of the device. I don’t know what kind of insane designers Motorola is hiring, but this seems like a pretty “cool” idea. According to AndroidandMe the device is expected to release Q1 2010.
