Motorola finally confirmed what we’ve been expecting for the last few weeks, a new MOTOBLUR handset is headed for T-Mobile. Officially dubbed the Charm, it is the first device in the United States to come with the new version of MOTOBLUR. Features include a 2.8-inch touch screen, a full QWERTY keyboard, and a BACKTRACK navigation pad on the back of the handset. Much like it does for the Backflip, the pad allows for an unobstructed view of the screen for a better browsing, texting, and gaming experience. Other features found in the phone include Adobe Flash Lite, a 3-megapixel camera, pinch zooming, multi-touch, and corporate email capability.
The Android 2.1-powered Charm is officially due “this summer” which could mean any day now. Unfortunately a price wasn’t announced for the device but we’re hearing both $75 after rebate as well as free for back-to-school promotions.
Additional features on Motorola CHARM include:
Adobe® Flash® enabled Web browsing experience to view most of today’s content-rich sites
Full suite of Google™ services including: Google Search™, Google Maps™, Gmail™ and access to thousands of apps on Android Market™
