It looks like Motorola has finally “officially” acknowledged the worst kept secret in the industry, and “officially” released the MPX220 Smartphone (at least, it shows up on their product info pages):
Looks like all of the specs that we already knew have been confirmed (Windows Mobile 2003 OS, Mini-SD, 1.3 MP camera, Bluetooth, Photo Caller ID on the external color screen, MMS, etc.). It also looks like it will be available in black and silver versions. Personally, I’m partial to the black version. I’ve fallen in love with the cool black/blue/chrome color scheme of my MPX200. Check out the Moto site (link above) for lots of nice high-res images of both the black and silver versions.
However, there’s still no word on availability, or which carriers will be offering this phone. There are rumors that AT&T stores have received the shelf price tags and info for the MPX220, and the sources say that usually happens about 1 month before the release of a new phone, so that’s a good sign, but it’s frustrating not to know for sure when/where I’ll be able to get my hands on this phone.
Because rest assured, I will get my hands on it. It will be mine – oh yes, it will be mine…
