CTIA Fall 2010

Moto Droid Pro Moto Citrus Moto Bravo Moto Flipside Moto Flipout  

The Citrus is a very low-end Android device from Motorola that is headed to the Verizon Wireless network in a few weeks.

It very much resembles the Palm Pre (when closed). It could easily be mistaken for a bar of soap. It has smooth, rounded edges and larger, easy to use controls.

The screen is a bit disappoint in that it has low resolution. However, it has not only the four standard Android control keys, but two physical send/end keys as well to make phone calls easier to deal with.

The controls placed on the sides include the volume toggle and dedicated camera key on the right, and a microUSB port left. They are all nicely defined and have good travel and feedback.

The Citrus runs Android 2.1 Eclair with Motoblur. Basically, just imagine the Droid X with half the screen size and you get the Citrus. The user interface felt zippy, with no lags, and all the normal Android features were on board.

I am sure this will be a hot seller come the holidays.
