Motorola Alexander Windows Mobile Standard Smartphone
Posted by Jason Dunn in "Motorola-based Smartphones" @ 11:20 AM
That blurry photo of a photo of a phone is apparently the Motorola Alexander. There were some rumours about it last month, but as usual with rumours they turned out to be a little off (Symbian OS? Nah). If this photo is accurate, we're looking at a Windows Mobile operating system on the Motorola Alexander. It's supposed to come out in Q4 of this year, so Windows Mobile 6.1 makes sense. The camera is supposed to be between five and eight megapixels, which means you'll probably get really high-resolution crappy-looking blurry photos. Honestly, I've never seen a camera on a Windows Mobile phone that's impressed me even in the slightest.
GPS is also included, and hopefully it's real GPS and not just aGPS. No word on the processor or the storage (there'd better be a microSD slot on there!) but there's supposedly an NVIDIA GPU capable of 3D hardware acceleration...which could prove to be interesting. It's hard to tell from the photo, but this looks fairly thin - which would be a bit unusual for a slider phone.
What do you think? Does this phone appeal to you based on what we think we know about it so far?
