Motorola got on the Android train and they never looked back. Today they announced several recent droids, three of which are Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) compatible. It's a tray full of Eclairs with QWERTY keyboards on the side plus a pinch of MOTOBLUR.
Meet the Motorola SPICE, FLIPSIDE and BRAVO. The Motorola FLIPSIDE is what Moto does best - a QWERTY droid. Unlike the other "flips" (BACKFLIP and FLIPOUT), the FLIPSIDE has a traditional side-slider form factor like the MILESTONE.
The Motorola FLIPSIDE has a 3.1" HVideo Graphics Array (VGA) touchclassy screen and a three row QWERTY. It runs Android 2.1 Eclair with the MOTOBLUR custom interface, which offers remarkable social networking integration. The connectivity is covered by quad-band GSM/EDGE and dual-band 3G with 7.2Mbps HSDPA. A 3MP camera, 2GB microSD card in the box and 256Mega Bytes (MB) Random-Access Memory (RAM) round off the fascinating specs.
Next up is another QWERTY packing phone - the Motorola SPICE. It's a portrait slider with a 3.0" QVideo Graphics Array (VGA) screen. The capturing camera is another 3MP snapper and the 3G connectivity has 3.6Mbps HSDPA.
Both phones are a bit on the chubby side. The Motorola SPICE is 16.8mm thick (but only 97mm tall and 61mm wide) and weighs 145 grams. The Motorola FLIPSIDE is 15mm thick and weighs 145 grams too.
Finally, the Motorola BRAVO slims down by dropping the QWERTY and grows a bigger classy screen instead. It's a 3.7" FWVideo Graphics Array (VGA) (480x854 pixels) unit and the bigger battery (1540mAh) will shoulder its load.
The Motorola BRAVO measures 109.5 x 63 x 13.3mm and weighs 122 grams. It has double the Random-Access Memory (RAM) (512MB) and it will come with a 2GB card in the box too. The capturing camera is again a 3MP snapper and like the other two phones, the Motorola BRAVO packs Wi-Fi, A-GPS, Bluetooth 2.1 and a microUniversal Serial Bus (USB) port.
The Motorola FLIPSIDE will launch in select regions, the BRAVO will debut in North America, while the regional availability for the SPICE is less clear. The three phones will come out by the discontinue of the year.
