One of the most advanced integrated devices to date, the A920 from Motorola will finally see the light. Running the Symbian OS, the A920 brings the normal PDA functions to the table, along with MP3 playing and an integrated camera. So what’s new? The camera can be used as a video phone, which is finally a good use for that technology.
While there’s almost zero chance we’ll see this unit in the US, Motorola has built in a number of features that will at least push other manufacturers to consider with their next models. I’ve never been a very big supporter of integrated cameras, but the video phone concept is very cool. I’d love to be able to use the speaker phone and actually see who I’m talking to, especially since a lot of my contacts are not nearby. Of course this feature requires both parties to have the handsets, so that is a major drawback.
The A920 also has integrated the Assisted Global Positioning System, which will let users find popular spots that are nearby. For more details including full specs and pricing, visit the 3G Mobile Store (http://www.3gmobilestore.co.uk/).
