Motorola's Zepplin is led to photographer
Ok, ok, enough Led Zepplin jokes. Motorola has become synonymous with hot Android phones in just the last 3-4 weeks or so and here comes another unit. The Chinese web site obtained a picture of this handset, which is expected to get a worldwide launch in the first quarter of 2010 after it first debuts in China. This is the same route being taken by the Dell Mini with a launch in China followed by a worldwide release.

The Zepplin offers a 3.1 inch touchscreen with resolution of  320 X 480 pixels. Wi-Fi is on board as is GPS and a FM radio (natch, so you can listen to all of those Led Zepplin songs on the oldie station...oops! Another LZ joke, sorry!) No word on cost yet.

Looks to be a dual band phone. I wonder if Sprint and Verizon will pick up this phone?

The fact that there's a CDMA "slot" indicates it would be for the Chinese networks. Or at the very least not any of the CDMA networks in the US.

i want this phone if it really is android... dual cards, 5 mp with led (albeit the camera wont be spectacular).. i dont think it'll be 3g though as it will drain the battery.... but its still good for me...

samsung memoir is a 8mp cam with flash and its 3g... plus theres many 5mp cam phones running android that are 3g. I dont think theres an android phone without 3g... why start now. the way i see it. 3g is becoming a standard even for dumbphones.

Man...this is one terrible looking phone. AND it's a MOTO. 5.0MP camera? I guess, what about the rest of it. Android OS? Man...but it's still a MOTO tho. I'm disgusted. Do wish that more American carriers would pick up more of the devices offered overseas.
