Motorola MING A1600 and A1800
Motorola launches 2 new business Smartphones: MOTOMING A1600 andA1800 based on the Linux platform. Both terminals can not be identified as compact while the the top specs list includes GPS, 2.4 inch touchscreen display and 3 megapixels camera.
MING A1600 is the natural upgrade for the former MING A1200 and it supports quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity (no 3G support). The 3 megapixels camera benefits of continuous autofocus and can be used to scan business cards or translate random text excerpts.
A1600 comes with a microSD cards slot and it also offers stereo Bluetooth support (A2DP). Wi-Fi connectivity is unfortunately not available, however the GPS module with the geo-tagging functionality is included.
The twin brother, MING A1800, uses the platform and lists exactly the same features (no WiFi for A1800 also). A1800 can peer simultaneously to 2 networks, GSM or CDMA. GSM support covers the tri-band GSM frequencies (no EDGE or 3G support), while the CDMA platform uses the CDMA 1x standard.
