Remember that Motorola Motoroi Tablet thing everyone wanted to see but could never get a good look at outside of Asia? Looky-here, folks.
Motorola today announced that the Milestone XT720 is indeed quite the phone. The revamped Motoroi includes a 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen with Android 2.1 (no word of MOTOBLUR but the commercial looks like it’s there). It also has some juiced-up media capabilities by recording in 720p; snapping photos with an 8MP camera, autofocus, and Xenon Flash; and playing back content via HDMI.
Price and availability have not been released yet, but the announcement was issued from the United Kingdom, making Europe a definite and the U.S. a possibility later this year. Motorola says only to “Contact your local Motorola representative” for more information about availability.
Enhanced Digital Camera & Video
MILESTONE XT720 breaks new ground for Android smartphones by offering an 8 megapixel camera with Xenon flash, 10x digital zoom, and a 720p HD camcorder. It allows users to not only capture, view and share high quality photos and videos, but also helps make them look better than ever. Key features include:
• Smart image capture: includes easy panorama, face detection, multi-shot (six shots in a row), face filter, red eye reduction, camera shake prevention and more, to improve the image quality and variety
• High definition multimedia interface (HDMI™): HDMI cable (in box) allows HD video captured on the MILESTONE XT720 to be viewed directly on an HDTV
• Memory card support: 8GB microSD card included inbox; expandable up to 32GB
