Motorola Enzo, Opus One to hit CES ramp

December 31, 2009, By Sanjeev Ramachandran


The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that opens in Las Vegas in a week’s time from now would be witness to the arrival of two new Android-based smartphones from the Motorola stables.

It is expected that Motorola could go ahead and announce the two phones for two different carriers just in time for the opening of CES. While one would be for Verizon Wireless, the other is expected to hop on to the AT&T network. The phone headed for Verizon would be Motorola’s second for the carrier, while the AT&T phone would be the first-ever Motorola Android phone to debut on the network.

Android-related blogs have started going to town with expected specs and more about the two upcoming phones. It is being said that the first phone which would jump on to the Verizon network will be the Enzo or the Backflip as it would also be known as. Meanwhile, the second device which would go to AT&T would be the Opus One, which would look and act similar to the much hyped Google Nexus One. So say the Android bloggers.

From what we manage to learn, the Enzo could come with a Qualcomm MSM7201A processor, 512MB ROM/256MB RAM, a 3.1-inch display at HVGA, five megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, GPS, Android 1.5 and Motoblur, Motorola’s phone sync service.  Meanwhile, the Motorola Opus One would boast of a Zeus XScale processor, 512MB Flash / 256MB of RAM, 3.1-inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen, 3-megapixel camera with autofocus and flash, accelerometer, proximity sensor, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, a microSD card slot and Android location-based services, integrated into the iDEN GPS engine.

It has also been pointed out that Motorola would throw in an OLED soft keyboard screen on to one of the devices, while the other might come with a physical keyboard similar to the Droid.

One good news we get to hear is that Motorola might not attach a heavy tag on to these phones. We are told that the two phones would be aimed at the mid-range, below Motorola’s immensely popular Droid.
