Motorola MPx (MPx300) and Motorola MPx100 first pictures
After many fake ones, yesterday I think we finally saw some pictures that are likely to be the real Motorola Mpx220. A post made on coolsmartphone.com forums showed a flash animation and the poster claimed that was the real MPx220. More about this here.
Today, more information surfaced about the one of the two other models smartphones that have to be released - Motorola MPx100 and Motorola MPx (MPx300) . It was very little know about the Motorola MPx100 - only one picture has surfaced so far and it came from msmobiles.com. It shows a relatively small phone with external antenna and apparently camera.

It became clear today (02-24-04) that this was not the picture of MPx100 and the phone will be bar style. The true picture is:
The official picture of MPx100
It is now know that the phone Motorola MPx100 will feature:
- Bluetooth and IRDA
- Up to 512 mb expandable memory
- 1.3 mega pixel camera with flash
- QWERTY keyboard
- Microsoft Windows Mobile OS
- MiniSD expansion slot
The MPx100 should be available the 2nd quarter of 2004.
Until yesterday, there has been no information on the Motorola MPx300 except that it will be Windows Mobile for Smartphones 2003. Well, this might not be true. The first unofficial picture of Motorola MPx300 shows a phone with a stylus next to it. According to Microsoft:
Q: How does Smartphone differ from the Pocket PC Phone Edition?
A: With Smartphone, we're taking the mobile phone you know and love and making it smarter and a whole lot better looking. Essentially with Smartphone, you keep that trim handset you're used to carrying around and have only the data that's convenient via one handed navigation. Pocket PC Phone Edition, on the other hand, is still primarily a PDA with a stylus that allows you to make the occasional phone call.

The problem is that devices running Windows Mobile for Smartphone do not have touchscreen and the Motorola MPx300 will apparently have such screen, which brings the question that the phone might be running Windows Mobile for Pocket PC Phone Edition. So far all phones running this OS look more like PDA then a phone, so it will be ground breaking for Motorola to introduce regular clamshell design phone running Pocket PC Phone Edition. Hopefully, more information will surface at the 3GSM World Congress 2004 in Cannas, France.
Motorola has officially announced the MPx (MPx300) phone today. It will feature:
- WI-FI, Bluetooth Support and IRDA
- 320 x 240 pixels color display
- 1.3 mega pixel camera
- SD/MMC extension slot
- QWERTY keyboard
- Microsoft Windows Mobile
The MPx should be available the 2nd quarter of 2004.
