Motorola showcases two new 3G phones - MAXX and V3xx
The just announced MAXX, which is supposed to be the US-bound version of the Moto V3x. The new phone is 0.6-inches thick (0.2 inches thinner than the V3x) and adds EDGE, and HSPDA support. On the outside of the flip are located touch sensor music control buttons so that you can use the music player even when the phone is closed. The handset features a 2.2-inch QVGA display, 2 megapixel camera for taking pictures and video capture, and a VGA one for video calling at up to 15 frames per second. The internal memory is 50 MB and it can be expanded via microSD card. The device also includes Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR (Enhanced Data Rate), allowing up to three times faster transmission speed.
MOTORAZR MAXX is expected to be available in Q4 this year. The rumors say it will be launching with Cingular, to take advantage of their high-speed HSDPA network.
The V3xx seems to be the successor of the V3x. It has similar design (but adds some graphics on the front shell) and also adds EDGE and HSDPA. The V3xx keeps the old 1.3-megapixel camera as a main unit and a VGA one for Video Calling, but improves the Bluetooth version to 2.0.
