Setting out to charm T-Mobile subscribers with its unique form factor, Motorola’s latest Android-powered device offers a compact touch screen and comfortable QWERTY keyboard in a BlackBerry-esque package that is a first for Android phones.
The Motorola Charm is powered by Android version 2.1, and features MOTOBLUR v.1.5 — Motorola’s social networking-centric interface — for close integration with favorite social networking sites including Facebook and Twitter. Charm users can use a home screen widget to easily flip through an integrated stream of status updates, and effortlessly re-tweet posts, like comments, and even comment on their friend’s Facebook updates.
The Charm offers a 3-megapixel fixed-focus camera, zippy 600 MHz processor, 2.8-inch display with multi-touch support, WiFi, aGPS, and pre-installed 2 GB microSD card (with support for up to a 32GB microSD card). Despite its unique design, the Charm is also equipped with an accelerometer.
