Ever wish you had a stylish personal assistant who could manage your calls, calendar and documents, keep you connected to important information all day and all night, and follow you wherever you go?
We'd heard rumors that Motorola might be working on some extremely high-spec devices for the Chinese market - a place where the company has had good footing for many years - and here we go : Give a warm welcome to the new MT917 Android, a smartphone with a 4.5-inch 1280x720p display and a 13-megapixel camera, an amazing combination of extreme good looks, extreme power and extreme TD-SCDMA speed.
At just 8.5mm thin and protected by KEVLAR fiber (not unlike the RAZR series), scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass, a zinc frame and splash guard coating inside and out, this is one device that doesn't compromises in style or durability. So review your e-mails, work on a document, or take in a movie during your next business-flight.
The phone is destined for China Mobile's TD-SCDMA 3G service, so American and European imports won't benefit from high-speed data - but it's an encouraging sign that Motorola is right in the thick of the 720p hunt kicked off by devices like HTC's Rezound and Samsung's Galaxy Nexus. Look for the MT917 to launch in mid-December.
