Motorola has officially unveiled its upcoming Smartphone devices at the 3GSM World Congress in Cannes France. The device we were referring to as the MPx300 turns out to be called simply the Motorola MPx. The MPx looks to be a very different type of phone that offers the user a horizontal or vertical alignment when being used and will include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Tri-band GSM/GPRS, SD slot, 320x240 2.8 inch screen, 1.3 MP integrated camera and a QWERTY layout keyboard. We hear it might also come equipped with a built in hand/hair dryer to squelch any perception there was a feature left out.

The Motorola MPx will come with 64MB of built in RAM and the SD slot will offer up to 1GB of storage expansion and will run the Microsoft Pocket PC Phone Edition OS. As you can see from these pictures, the device isn't exactly tiny and is more on par in size with the XDA Phone devices on the market, but this thing literally come with just about every feature you'd need. It will be interesting to see how the keyboard rates, it looks like it could take some getting used to.
The MPx100 should fill the niche for the smaller type device Smartphones that people want.
