The Motorola Citrus is going to be released by Verizon Wireless tomorrow. This inexpensive model will run Google’s very popular Android operating system and have an entry-level feature set.
It will have a tablet shape with a 3-inch QVGA (320 x 240) capacitive touchscreen. Users will type with an on-screen keyboard, or the Swype text-entry system will be an option.
This device is going to have an unusual feature, the backtrack — a touchpanel located on the back of the device.
The Citrus will run Android OS 2.1, and have 1 GB of internal storage plus a 2 GB microSD card. Users will be able to swap this out for higher-capacity cards, up to 32 GB.
It will support Verizon’s 3G network (EV-DO Rev 0) as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS.
This smartphone is also going to include a 3 megapixel camera, a 1150 mAh battery, and a 3.5 mm headset jack.
