The next Android-based smartphone to come out of Motorola will apparently be called the Zeppelin. It hasn’t yet been announced, but a great deal of information on this Android-based device has leaked out already.
Unconfirmed information indicates that it will have a tablet shape, with a 3.2-inch HVGA (320 by 240 pixel) touchscreen.
The Zeppelin is reportedly going to based on Google’s Android OS 1.5, and include MotoBlur, Motorola’s software that pulls together messages from social networking sites, texts, and e-mail.
Leaked lists of specifications also include a 5 megapixel camera and a GPS receiver.
However, at this point other details remain a mystery.
Just Around the Corner
According to unconfirmed reports, T-Mobile USA is going to launch the Motorola Zeppelin on March 10.
Pricing is not yet known, but this device is expected to be relatively inexpensive.
One of Many
The Motorola Cliq — this company’s first model running Google’s operating system for smartphones — was released by T-Mobile in October, and Motorola has been on a roll ever since.
In November came Verizon’s launch of the Motorola Droid, which is credited with making Android a major force in the phone market.
The Motorola Backflip was unveiled but not released at CES in January. Broad hints from AT&T indicate that this is going to be one of this carrier’s first Google-powered smartphones.
And just yesterday, Verizon Wireless announced that it’s going to release the Motorola Devour, another Android device with MotoBlur.
