Motorola EX112, EX115, and EX245 Get Scoped Out

Labels: , , , ,

Some Motorola handsets have just leaked out and they're going to be hitting Brazil sometime in the future. First up is the Motorola EX112 (pictured above on the left) will be available in two variants, the other is the EX115, which sports dual-SIM card slots, a 3MP camera, quad-band GSM connectivity, and a full QWERTY keypad. The EX245 is the handset on the right and it sports a touchscreen display, a 3MP camera, and a widget-based homescreen which is similar to Android. These handsets will be hitting Brazil soon - like I said - but there's no word on the price tags or the exact release dates.
