The Android based Motorola Zeppelin makes an appearance

Coming forth with a name that either strikes up images of a giant airship or the music of a great rock band we now have another Zeppelin, except in this case it is the Motorola Zeppelin and it is an Android powered phone.

Anyway, these latest images are coming courtesy of DIGI.QQ.com, who have not only posted some nice (and surprisingly non-blurry) images, of course in a strange twist they seem to have neglected to take a picture of the front of the phone. That said, maybe they felt guilty there, because the images also came with a nearly complete set of specs.

Feature wise it looks like the Motorola Zeppelin is going to offer a 3.1-inch 480 x 320 display, 5-megapixel camera with flash, FM Radio, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, GPS and Bluetooth. There are however a few other items that make it a little more interesting though, and those include an HDMI output and a spot for two SIM cards — one of which is marked CDMA and the other as GSM.

That said, while it sounds good to have the dual-SIM slots, those of us here in the US are not going to be taking advantage of them because that CDMA slot is more specifically an R-UIM slot, which is good for use in China.

Moving on, it looks like this particular model will be made available in China during the first quarter of 2010, and just maybe another variation of the Zeppelin will be coming later.
