Motorola expanded its Ming lineup today by launching three new Android handsets specially designed for China. The eclectic three include the A1680, the MT810, and the XT806. Destined for a different wireless carrier in China, each handset sports the distinctive design and signature transparent flip screen of the Ming handset series.
With WCDMA onboard, the A1680 is bringing its 3.1-inch AMOLED touchscreen to China Unicom’s network. The A1680 also includes WiFI, WAPI, 5MP camera, GPS, Motorola’s alternative SHOP4APPS app store, and the SoftStylus handwriting recognition system.
A step us from the A1680 is the MT810, an OPhone OS 2.0 offering that is slated for China Mobile. The MT810 should look familiar as it has been spotted earlier this year in a high-profile leak. The MT810 features a 3.2-inch touchscreen display, 720P video capture and playback, CMMB television support, and access to China Mobile’s Mobile marketplace.
Last but not least is the XT806, an Android 2.1 offering destined for China Telecom. The XT806 includes a 3.2-inch, 300dpi touchscreen display, 720P HD video capture and playback, CDMA/EVDO connectivity, GSM for global roaming, GPS, and Motorola’s alternative SHOP4APPS app store.
With the debut of these three handsets, Motorola now offers eleven Android handsets in China. So much for the prediction that the spread of Android in China would be hampered by Google’s tense relations with the Chinese government. Motorola has single-handedly dispelled that myth in the first eight months of 2010.
