T-Mobile has a spanking new smartphone on offer for the masses, and we’re talking about the Motorola Charm here. This unique touchscreen handset will come with built-in social networking capability, complete with the Android 2.1 operating system (hopefully an Android 2.2 update will be released in due time), not to mention their proprietary MOTOBLUR enhancement to help customize the Android experience on Motorola’s range of smartphones. Apart from that, its compact design and a BACKTRACK feature further drives a more intuitive screen navigation experience, especially so for a new user. More on the Motorola Charm in the extended post, so read on.
You can expect the Motorola Charm to be made available Stateside from T-Mobile later this summer, although an exact release date has yet to be revealed. Just what does the hardware offer? For starters, the display isn’t as large as some of you out there might want, although it ain’t no slouch either with a 2.8″ touchscreen, and since it has a full QWERTY keyboard, you won’t find yourself fumbling when it comes to composing a long email or text message. As for its BACKTRACK navigation pad, it is located on the back of the smartphone straight behind the home screen in a similar manner to that of a laptop touch panel, providing you with an unobstructed view of the Web, texts, e-mails and news feeds. Apart from that, Android 2.1 and enhanced MOTOBLUR features lends the Charm new customization and filtering options.
Here’s a little bit of trivia – the Motorola Charm is the first device in the US to boast an enhanced version of MOTOBLUR built on Android 2.1, where it will be able to synchronize contacts, posts, messages, photos and more in easy to manage streams, making sure you’re always up to speed when it comes to various sources including Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Gmail, work and personal e-mail. With Adobe Flash support built-in, a 3-megapixel camera, CrystalTalk PLUS for enhanced audio and call quality with a second microphone for increased voice quality that filters out background noise, this mid-range Android phone looks set to make a decent splash, don’t you think so?
