Motorola may have yet another Android device up their sleeve, and a Droid tablet

December 3, 2009, By Thomas Antony

The Verizon Droid may have been a lifesaver for Motorola. It is reported that some 100-200 Droids are being sold every week. The Android-based handset was released to overwhelming hype a few weeks ago and attracted long queues and crowds at the Verizon stores.

Now , revealed in photos, is a mysterious new handset from Motorola. It is a full touchscreen Android handset with a sleek black, rounded appearance. In another leak, a keyboardless version of the Droid smartphone was spotted in photos. It could turn out to be a followup to the Motorola Droid in the form of a Droid tablet.

More details below.

The first device I have talked about, is a never-before-seen handset. From the pictures, we can seee that it has an 8-megapixel camera along with Dual LED Flash. The handset will also apparently have an 800 MHz processer with a 3.8-inch full touchscreen display. Nothing more is know about this device.

In case of the keyboardless Droid, there are a few details known about it. The prototype had the 3.7-inch 854×480 display as the original Droid handset and connectivity to UMTS/HSPA data networks. It also runs on the 550MHz OMAP TI 3430 processor as the Droid smartphone.. What is new, is an HDMI output for direct output to larger displays, and an 8 megapixel flash with Xenon flash. The production version is expected to run the upcoming Android 2.1 . The leaks originated in China and it is not known when it will be available in the US.

In other news, Motorola is showing its commitment to touchscreens by investing in Sensitive Object, a developer for handheld touch-based devices. This gives Moto, access to the Anywhere Multitouch technology which uses sound rather than finger resistance or capacitance to detect touch. It works by detecting the waves emanating from a touch on the screen.
