Here is the deal: the Motorola Heron (aka the Iron Man) is a QWERTY slider, sporting a 2.8-inch touch-sensitive display and a bunch of other features, such as 3MP camera and AGPS. The most interesting thing about it is that it´s said to run on the Android platform. According to the document, its development has moved from Windows Mobile to Android, so keep in mind some of the specs on the paper might not be present on the new version of the phone. The document hints at a November 2 release, but we are not sure if this comes true.
The Motorola Sawgrass, previously known as the QA1, is not as smart as the Heron. Designed as a “compact consumer messaging device”, it offers a full QWERTY keyboard and threaded messaging capabilities. The feature phone has a 2.5-inch QVGA display, 2MP camera, 3.5mm jack and full-fledged HTML browser. However, the release date of the Sawgrass is still uncertain.
