Motorola Motogo is a Cheap Candybar Phone With Portrait QWERTY Keyboard

Motorola Mobility just introduced on the Brazilian market the new mobile phone MOTOGO, a monoblock format handset with a portrait QWERTY keyboard and that nice old central button. It reminds me of older Nokia devices, as it’s probably used to go left and right, up and down in the menus.

This model supports 3G and WiFi connectivity, it has GPS navigation and Google service. There’s also a separate search button here, that allows MOTOGO users to enjoy the full search features of Google. The handset will cost around $170 in Brazil and you should know that this model also comes with 7.2 Mbps HSDPA connectivity, a 2.2 inch TFT 320 x 240 pixel display and a 2 megapixel camera with fixed focus. The handset weighs 100 grams and has an FM radio too.

And finally, this model has a microSD card slot, 50MB of memory and support for WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, microUSB and GPS. The battery inside is a 910 mAh unit and I don’t expect a very long life out of it, to be honest. I certainly hope that Motorola will also deliver higher end handsets in the near future, not only low end models like this one.
