Motorola Motus Spy Shot Spied, With Specs and Touch-Sensitive "Unique Flip" Keyboard?

Labels: , , ,

This blurry camera photo you see above could very well be the Android-based Motorola Motus which is scheduled to launch in early 2010. Specs haven't popped up about this handset, but there are some thoughts I can tell you about the picture. Obviously, there'll be a QWERTY keyboard (slide-out, I believe) and the display is definitely a fingerprint magnet. Back to the keyboard, it appears to be touch-sensitive which will rub some people the wrong way. It'll definitely take something to get used to - especially considering there have been a bit of complaints with the DROID / MILESTONE's keyboard.

Update on November 20th: According to Boy Genius, this handset will actually sport a "unique" flip mechanism. We'll have to wait to see it in action then.

Update: According to Engadget and Gizmodo, this handset has quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE / tri-band HSDPA (850/1900/2100 MHz) 7.2Mbps bands. This means that it could be headed to AT&T. Possible specs include: a 3.1-inch capacitive touchscreen display with a 320 x 480 resolution, a 5MP AF camera with an LED flash, a microSD card slot, 256MB of RAM, aGPS / WiFi / Bluetooth 2.0 support, a Qualcomm MSM 7201A 528MHz CPU, a 1,400 mAh battery, and MOTOBLUR on top of Android.

Apple iTablet Delayed Until H2 2010, Working On 9.7-Inch OLED Model That Will Cost $2,000, Cheaper 10.6-Inch Model Expected

Labels: , , , ,

According to DigiTimes, they've dug up more rumours about the upcoming Apple iTablet. The rumour states that the tablet could be delayed until the second half of 2010, even though it was scheduled for the tablet to hit the market in March 2010. The reason for the delays is because Apple is planning to have a couple of different models for this tablet and one will include a 9.7-inch OLED display. This display reportedly costs $500 and is around 30% of the total price of the device, which would mean the tablet would cost around $1,500 - $1,700 USD. Now that isn't exactly cheap.

Fortunately, that's the price right now, but OLED displays are constantly dropping in price. It's estimated that the tablet will cost around $1,200 - $1,500 USD when it gets launched in the second half of 2010. It'll retail for around $2,000 though...

Oh yes, there'll be a lower-end model with a 10.6-inch LCD display. This model is expected to launch for $800 - $1,000 USD, which is something that you could see subsidized by a carrier.
