Today Motorola announced its latest phone for Boost Mobile, the Rambler. The Rambler is a feature phone that sports a full QWERTY keyboard, a 1.3 megapixel camera, and support for email and instant messaging. The device also offers Bluetooth connectivity as well as GPS support, and offers some standard features such as a speakerphone and voice recognition support.



The Rambler will be available on August 11th on Boost Mobile's website for $99.99 before taxes, with free shipping. It also be sold through Best Buy retail stores and dealers, as well as in Best Buy.


We all know that the Droid 2 is coming. And, we are all pretty much certain that the Droid 2 is coming next month. And it looks like folks at Best Buy may be under the same impression.


Though, we're curious if someone, somewhere, who has anything to do with the merchandise being placed out there, has any idea (officially) when the Droid 2 will actually get released. We'd like very much to talk to that person, or persons.


In any event, as you can see from the image, that's clearly a case for the Droid 2. Even if you can't tell from the aesthetics, there's a big label at the bottom of the box that says what phone it's for. Doesn't get much clearer than that, we imagine. Then again, someone could have marked all of the boxes incorrectly, but that's not likely. So, at this point, considering we already have the user manual, and now some cases, let's go ahead and say that Verizon needs to come forward and announce this handset already. We're waiting!




Motorola is obviously just about at the end of the tunnel as their financial results are starting to get better and better. This time around the company reported 162 million US dollars of profit, which compares very favorably to the 26 millions earned for the same period last year.

Of course what interests us the most is Motorola mobile division, which managed to push 8.7 million handsets for the past three months. Those generated 1.7 billion dollars of revenue and 87 million dollars of profit. Okay it's not like they are lighting their Cuban cigars with Benjamins in the Moto HQ, but it's certainly good enough considering their recent track record.

The bad news is that some legal statement brought them 228 million dollars that certainly added for the positive financial result and it's unlikely that such a thing will happen again next quarter. So Motorola will need to keep up the hard work and hope that by the time the mobile division gets separated it can continue to be in the black, relying on sales alone.

Releasing more devices like the Motorola Droid X, which enjoyed a great reception in the US will certainly help. And fitting some GSM radios in those might help in the rest of the world warming up towards Motorola too.

Motorola Charm Set to Woo the Market

Motorola has just unveiled the Motorola Charm in the US, with a likely launch date for the United Kingdom soon. 

The new handset runs Android 2.1, one of the latest versions of Google's popular firmware. Using Motorola's spin on the software, Motoblur, the handset has a clear focus on social networking. 

With a 2.8-inch touchscreen and a QWERTY keyboard, the latest device to come out of the US embraces user input. The option to type as well as tap will come in handy when users need to get their fingers around an important message in a hurry. 



The phone also comes with a 3MP snapper, perfect for quick uploads onto Facebook. A 3.6Mbps HSDPA speed and Wi-Fi also come on board, along with connectivity via Bluetooth. 

The headline feature of the device is what Motorola have dubbed the 'BackTrack'. On the back of the device comes an optical trackpad, meaning users can scroll with ease through web pages and texts. 

Adobe Flash also comes installed for a more desktop-like web experience. 

Among other features on the phone comes CrystalTalk Plus. By employing a second microphone on the device, the handset can remove distracting background noise for clearer and cleaner calls. 

With the handset running Android, the device comes with the complete Google package. Gmail, Google Search, YouTube and Google Maps with GPS come pre-installed to provide a more complete internet experience.

"We believe that CHARM with MOTOBLUR adds the social ability and workability consumers are looking for," said Jean-Pierre Le Cannellier, the senior director of North America marketing for Motorola Mobile Devices. 

(Quench XT3)


Motorola is having great time with Android the latest Moto droid is the Motorola Quench XT3. We've seen it before under the name XT502 Greco though its specs have been lowered somewhat since then.

The Motorola Quench XT3 is a touchscreen bar, similar to the original Motorola Quench. The Quench XT3 runs Android OS 1.6 Donut. Another change to the official spec sheet compared to the rumors is the 3MP Camera.

The rest of the Motorola Quench XT3 specs are standard Android fare 3.2" HVGA touchscreen, a 600MHz Qualcomm MSM 7227 CPU, Wi-Fi b/g, GPS and support for microSD cards up to 32GB.
The Motorola Quench XT3 will be launching in Taiwan some time in August alongside the original Motorola Quench.Taiwan's Far EasTone Telecommunications will carry the Quench XT3 though no price has been announced yet.
