MWC 2010 - Motorola Quench breaks cover
As the mobile madness that is MWC continues, Motorola has announced a brand new Android handset called Quench.
The handset is Motorola's 8th Android addition, and will pack a 3.1-inch touchscreen, 5 megapixel camera with flash, Wifi, 3G, A-GPS and Motoblur, Motorola's omnipresent Android-powered content delivery system.
In case you've forgotten, Motoblur merges contacts, messages, emails, photos and social networking activity and delivers it to your homescreen, giving you a one-look view at all your goings on. It'll even automatically update itself when friends change their info online, so you've no need to do it manually.
It also provides you with peace of mind should you ever lose your phone, as it can be located from a secure personal information portal, and remotely deleted if needs be.
As for web browsing, the Quench supports Flash Lite, multitouch pinch-to-zoom, and has a touchpad as well as the touchscreen, for easily flicking through web pages.
There's also a new media player on board, which will allow you to buy and download music from MP3 stores, as well as integrate third party apps such as TuneWiki, SoundHound and YouTube, and stream FM radio.
Disappointingly though, the Quench will only pak Android 1.5, which already makes it outdated compared to other handsets even within Motorola's line up. Here's hoping for a 2.1 update soon, or at least a super reasonable price tag.
The Quench is expected to land worldwide in Q1, which means it can't be far away from hitting shelves. We'll be swinging by the Motorola stand at MWC for some hands on snaps, so stay tuned for all that and more at Stuff.tv.
