Motorola is making a comeback
In a recent discussion with one of the top mobile phone retailers in the country, we talked a bit about Motorola and how they just quietly faded away in the Philippine market for a couple of years now.
If some of you might have noticed, Motorola stores in malls have been closed for a couple of years now and no new handsets have been introduced (despite introducing several new units in the US).
According to my source, it looks like Motorola is planning a comeback to the Philippines and along with it, probably the Android-powered Motorola Milestone (the Droid), among others.
3.7 inches @ 480×854 pixels
ARM Cortex A8 600 MHz
PowerVR SGX530 graphics
133 MB storage, 256 MB RAM
up to 32GB via microSD (8GB included in the box)
HSDPA 10.2 Mbps, HSUPA 5.76 Mbps
WiFi 802.11 b/g
Bluetooth 2.1 w/ A2DP
5MP autofocus camera w/ dual-LED flash
GPS w/ aGPS support
We’re not sure when this will be but we will eventually know once the Milestone has arrived. Some handsets that are sold in Hong Kong are reported to be selling at around Php27,000 so hopefully, the official release would be around that figure.
