Motorola debuts a trio of new phones
You are worried about Motorola’s future, aren’t you? It has been a while since the once-powerful manufacturer hasn’t released any interesting model, but the line-up for the beginning of 2009 will not be anything special as well. During the CES 2009 event, Moto will showcase a trio of phones it announced today.

As expected, the Motorola Renew is nothing but an “environmentally responsible” phone, with a housing made out of recycled plastic water bottles. It has eco-friendly design and packaging, but when it comes to features it is just your ordinary budget model for phone calls and text messages. Expect it with T-Mobile USA in the first quarter.

The Motorola Tundra VA76r is designed to withstand abuse, meeting US 810F Military Specifications. Although it is tough, this Push to Talk phone also has some features to offer, packing aGPS with AT&T Navigator, 3G, stereo Bluetooth and 2-megapixel camera. AT&T will offer it starting January 13th, for $200 after a $50 MIR and a two-year contract.


Last but not least, here is the Motorola SURFA3100, called „touch tablet”. This is the first Motorola Windows Mobile Professional smartphone, and like most of its rivals will come with personalized homescreen. We’d like to see the customization in other menus as well, but this will have to wait until CES in order to see what Moto has done. The A3100 is a global GSM/3G phone with Wi-Fi, GPS, 3-megapixel camera and 2.8” QVGA display. It will be available “in multiple markets” in Q1, but there is no word on the exact carrier availability.
