Motorola today announced two upgraded devices it hopes will bring Linux into the hands of mainstream users - even in the US. The company has also announced it will launch another music-focused series series of phones, this time focusing on integration with Windows Media.
- RIZR Z6: a sleeker take on the RIZR Z3, the Z6 has an angular glossy look to it. Has all the same features as the Z3, including quad-band GSM/EDGE, 2 Megapixel camera with flash, stereo Bluetooth and MicroSD slot. However the Z6 now runs Motorola's Linux-Java platform and features a music player with tight integration into Windows Media Player 11. Due out in some countries this quarter.
- Ming EDGE: An update to the A1200 Ming sold in Asia, this version has the same look but adds quad-band GSM and EDGE to the touch-screen based smartphone. The Ming also features stereo Bluetooth, a 2 Megapixel camera, MicroSD slot and new software that allows you to write words in your native language on the screen and have the Ming speak them in another language.
Ming in America?
I already lost the iPhone to Cingular. Ming for T-mobile!
