Motorola XT560 makes an entrance: Android on budget
The Motorola XT560 won’t impress you with specs, but it promises to do so with its price. You guessed it right - the XT560 brings Android on budget and in a neat compact package. The handset should first get launched in Europe in the near future, and later arrive to other markets.

The Motorola XT560 allegedly features a smallish HVGA display, but the actual size is not known. There’s also a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 800Mhz processor, HSDPA 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity, all of that powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

If it comes to US shores, the XT560 could well end up on some of the regional carriers, but up until now it’s not even official yet, so don’t hold your breath for it just yet.

I like that design. But what's with that Single core 800 MHz processor that Motorola has been so fond of these days?

at least use a MSM8255t that is found on the sensation xe and most 2nd gen windows phone . That gotta be the fastest single core chip I ever seen (intel atom put aside , for now)

It's a new processor based on the Cortex A5 architecture. It's made to bring the armv7 instruction set (which the newer A8, A9 and A15 chips are based on) to the low end to replace the older arm11 cpu based on armv6 instructions. That low end phone is probably on par with a nexus s performance wise. Also the LG Optimus elite uses the same cpu as well. The a5 can be built in single, dual or quad core variants with clock speeds ranging from 500 Mhz to 1Ghz
