Official press release about Motorola MPx220 from Motorola – Official press release about Motorola MPx220 from Motorola claims to have obtained a pre-release copy of the official Press Release from Motorola on the upcoming MPX220 MS Smartphone (that I’ve been drooling over for months – this WILL be my next phone).

I’ve had an MPX200 for about six months now, and I love it to death. The MS Smartphone platform is perfect for the uses I have for it – it’s a phone first and foremost, and all of the functionality is built around that usage paradigm. Much easier to use as a phone than the Pocket PC Phone Edition I had for year before getting my Smartphone.

The MPX220 improves upon it’s little brother in the following main ways:

  • Windows Mobile 2003 for Smartphones OS – optimized and fast, plus adds a few new features
  • Bluetooth – for connecting to wireless headsets, PDAs, computers, cars, etc.
  • Integrated 1.3 MP camera with 3x digital zoom and LED flash

I got my MPX200 from CompUSA and unlocked it to work on T-Mobile, since AT&T Wireless is the only carrier that has the MPX200, but their GRPS access fees are outrageous. Nothing compares to T-Mobile’s $19.99 unlimited GPRS internet access.

Can’t wait for this phone to arrive. No carriers have been announced, but I’m hoping it will be available on T-Mobile, to save me the trouble of unlocking.

Hurry up, MPX220!
