Motorola releases the XT626 its first Android first dual-mode iDEN and 3G Smartphone in Korea
According to our good friends over Engadget, the Motorola XT626 has been spot over at the FCC in the USA, however, today, the Motoroal announced that this new phone will be first made available in Korea and will be available via KT Powertel.
Despite being freshly announced, the XT626 is far from being the most exciting Android Phone that we had the chance to see and don’t expect much since this new Moto will only be powered by Android 2.3 and come with a 8Mpix Camera with Digital Zoom and LED Flash, with a 1.3Mpix front facing camera, WiFi BGN, Bleutootn 2.1+EDR , 4GB of memory and PTT or Push To Talk function.
Finally, the XT626 is Motorola first dual-mode iDEN (Integrated Digital Enhanced Network) and 3G phone being put on the market!
Despite having an English and Korean press release in our hands we are still unable to tell you what CPU comes with this new XT626 smartphone and what is its screen size and resolution.
The Motorola XT626 doubles up as either an iDEN device or a smartphone based on the SIM cards inserted. With iDEN push-to-talk functionality, you can make instant phone calls, group talks or group text messaging whenever you need to. With Android 2.3, you can use apps or access the Internet over WiFi or 3G, as well as making calls on the 3G network.
No matter where you are, the Motorola XT626 can keep you in touch with your team thanks to a pre-loaded application that enables push-to-talk capability over WiFi when the iDEN network is not available. You can also send MMS messages and you’ll never miss a push-to-talk message even when you’re in a phone call.
“Motorola XT626 offers true communications flexibility with support for both iDEN and 3G networks in one device,” said Greg Page, vice president and general manager, iDEN, Motorola Mobility. “With the advantages of both push-to-talk and Android-powered smartphone features, Motorola XT626 opens the door to new opportunities for service providers and professionals who need to stay in touch with their teams anytime, anywhere.”
KT Powertel will offer the Motorola XT626 under the model name DOUBLE V at their service centers nationwide from early July. For more information on the Motorola XT626 features and pricing, please visit KT Powertel’s website at www.ktpowertel.co.kr.
