Motorola is making a big statement this year in Canada. They recently launched the Motorola Milestone and have announced that 3 new Android-powered devices will “coming to Canada with all three national wireless carriers in the first half of 2010”.
The devices are the Backflip, Dext and Quench and all have Motorola’s custom version of Android called MOTOBLUR which combines all your Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Gmail and syncs your work contacts, email and calendar together on your home screen.
Pretty exciting stuff – nice to see Motorola bouncing back! According to the release the Backflip, Dext and Quench are described as the following:
MOTOROLA BACKFLIP – Backflip’s unique reverse flip design makes it easy to enjoy videos, music and photos, while its QWERTY keyboard allows you to blast through e-mails, texts, news feeds, social network messages and more. Navigate quickly and easily through menus and features with the new and unique BACKTRACK feature. BACKTRACK is a touch panel located on the opposite side of the device, offering you a new way to scroll through the web, texts, e-mails and news feeds without obscuring the home screen.
MOTOROLA DEXT – Flick through your latest updates and fire back a response on DEXT’s slide-out QWERTY keyboard – no apps to open and no menus to dig through, just instant social gratification. Snap photos with DEXT’s 5 megapixel camera with autofocus; upload photos simply to your favorite photo sharing or social sites; and make and take clear calls even in noisy environments with dual microphones and noise cancellation technology.
MOTOROLA QUENCH – This sleek, customizable touch tablet fits nicely in a palm or pocket. QUENCH’s easy-to-use touch pad and enhanced browser bring to life content rich web sites (busy banners, full videos) that many of today’s phones can’t handle. And with pinch and zoom capabilities, it’s easy to enlarge and enjoy all this great content.
