It seems a new Android phone is on its way to T-Mobile stores, but it might not be the superphone you’re looking for. The Motorola Charm, revealed in leaked training materials sent to Engadget, is running an enhanced version of Motoblur on top of Android 2.1.
However, what makes this phone unique is its form factor, a candybar style with a front-facing keyboard, similar to many Blackberry devices. The materials also note a variety of changes and additions to Motoblur in 2.1:
- Seven home screens
- Motoblur widgets can now be resized
- Widgets include enhanced functionality including “Like” for Facebook and “Retweet” for Twitter
- Usual Android 2.1 enhancements, such as multitouch and 3D Gallery
No technical specs were included, but given the nature of the device, you shouldn’t get your hopes up.
