Do you remember the images of the Motorola Rival A455
that we showed you back in March
and then in early May
? If not, here are some new ones that we just received today, showing that it will be available in a silver & black combination and a purple & black combination. The choice of colors and overall styling make it look like it is mostly geared to teens, so it's good to know there's also a sliding QWERTY keyboard
for all the text messages they'll be sending out. Other features include a QVGA display, 2MP camera, microSD memory card slot, and a microUSB charging port. The display is touch sensitive, but appears to be only used for dialing phone
numbers. There's no word yet on pricing, but it's in Verizon's system as with a projected release date of June 10th. With the enV3
out in two days and enV Touch
later next week, it will be interesting to see if the Rival lives up to it's name.Motorola Rival A455 Preliminary Specifications
A friend of ours was able to nail down the final specifications of the Motorola Rival. First off, the screen resolution is 176x220, not QVGA as originally thought, and it is 2.2" in size with 65K color support. The camera is indeed 2MP, the headset jack is 3.5mm, and microSD support is 8GB. The size of the Rival is 3.8"H x 2.0"W x 0.71"D and has a weight of 4.40oz. Release date is set for June 10th.
