17+ Androids Assault the iPhone

Rumored: Motorola Heron

The Motorola Heron is designed as a lower-end Android phone, but, of course, a low-end smart phone is still packed with plenty of features these days. It was expected to launch on AT&T's network in the middle of this year, but with the addition of the Android OS, it seems the launch date has been dramatically delayed, if not cancelled in its entirety by AT&T. But we’ll get into AT&T’s shenanigans shortly. The Heron has a 2.8" touch screen as well as a Palm Pre-style slide-out QWERTY keypad. It will also have a 3.0 MP camera with LED flash. Unfortunately, it appears to be rather lacking in storage. The smart phone has only 128 MB of internal storage, but again, it will be expandable with a microSD card. It still touts a perfectly manageable 256 MB of memory. As for a launch date, it’s hard to say if it will even launch at all, but hopefully the delays are simply due to Motorola adding its newly developed MOTOBLUR interface.

    the Huawei U8220 is sold as the T-mobile pulse in several coutnries in europe for some time now.

    its basically the same as U8230. wich is sold in several different countries. (custom roms for the pulse based on U8230 rom are available to get rid of the t-mobile branding and stuff from the pulse.)

    i do believe there is a pulse 2 or pulse mini announced but i dont have the excact details
