Motorola has announced the A1010, an upcoming UIQ handheld with support for high-speed cellular-wireless networks.

This model is an updated version of the A1000, which debuted last year.

This device will have two cameras, a 2.0 megapixel one, and a VGA one. As the A1010 supports WCDMA high-speed wireless networking, Motorola is emphasizing this handheld’s ability to do mobile video conferencing on its 208-by-320-pixel screen. It will also play video and audio files, of course.

As the A1010 is a GSM/GPRS device (900/1800/1900 MHz), it will support both voice and data. It will offer web browsing, as well as push email, SMS, and MMS. It will also include Virtual Private Network support.

Motorola A1010 It will come with the Picsel Document Viewer, allowing it to view — but not edit — Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF documents.

The A1010 will run Symbian OS 7.0, with UIQ 2.1 providing the user interface. UIQ is a user interface for wireless handhelds. It has been designed for pen-based, Touchscreen devices such as this one.

This handheld will use TransFlash cards, so how much Storage capacity it will have will depend on the size of the card currently inserted.

It will include Bluetooth, allowing users to make use of a wireless headset or car kit.

The Motorola A1010 is expected to be available during the fourth quarter of this year.

This is just one of the many new devices being unveiled at the 3GSM World Congress, going on now in Cannes, France.
