The Motoroi returns with T-Mobile bands under the hood, while visiting the FCC
Remember the Motorola Motoroi? It somewhat resembled the DROID except for an upgraded camera and flash, and a bump on the side of the phone. Launched overseas in February, we have actually managed to see the unit for sale unlocked at local kiosks specializing in imported cellphones. It appears that those in the U.S. who have been hankering after this device will have a shot at a subsidized model after all. The MB710, as the unit is referred to in FCC documents, and its bump, took the opportunity during the Independence Day holiday period to visit the FCC. With the radio supporting the WCDMA 1700MHz AWS spectrum, it is clear that this unit is heading to T-Mobile. A draft copy of the user manual also has a reference to "MyFaves". The handset will feature MOTOBLUR and be running Android 2.0 at launch. The FCC filing says that the MB710 will have an 8MP camera with xenon flash. While the Motoroi was launched with the same display specs as the DROID (3.7 inch screen, 480 x 854 resolution), the MB710 could have different specs. Neither T-Mobile nor Motorola has confirmed the existence of this device, but visiting the FCC to stop for a chat would be the first thing necessary if, say, the MB710 was heading to T-Mobile later this year.
