Motorola has launched a couple of new smartphones that run on Google's Android operating system.
The first is the Motorola Milestone XT, a 3.5G phone featuring a Cortex A8 ARM-based processor, a 3.7in (854 x 480-pixels) display, microSD slot, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth and an 8-megapixel digital camera that is also capable of shooting 720p videos.
The Motorola Milestone XT has a recommended retail price of RM1,799.
The other model is the Motorola Backflip, a smartphone that comes with a flip-around keypad and a touchpad.
The Backflip's Qwerty keypad not only rotates around the back of the screen, but can also be used as a stand to angle the screen towards you when it is set down on a table.
The 3.1in screen has a resolution of 640 x 240-pixels and while it supports touch input, the Backflip has a unique touchpad located behind the screen.
The logic for the unusual location of the touchpad is that it allows the user to scroll around in webpages and photos without obscuring the screen as you normally would when touching directly on the screen.
Other than the keyboard and the touchpad, the Backflip features a microSD slot, a 5-megapixel camera, Bluetooth and WiFi.
The Motorola Backflip has a recommended retail price of RM1,699.
Since both phones are Android-based, they come pre-installed with a suite of Google applications, including Google Maps, Google Talk, Gmail and YouTube.
