Around the sides of the phone you'll find a volume rocker, micro USB port for charging and data transfer, an HDMI out and a 3.5mm headphone jack. On the front is a 1.3 megapixel camera for video-calling and on the rear is an 8 megapixel camera capable of capturing 1080p video.
The phone is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor which is backed up by 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. This can be expanded with a microSD card up to a further 32GB.The phone measures 127 x 67 x 12.7mm and weighs 178g - though feels lighter in reality.
The phone runs Android 2.3.5 but Motorola has guaranteed this will be upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich by the second quarter of 2012. The Android UI has been skinned by Motorola and the company has included the MotoCast software for remote TV viewing and Smart Actions, which can help save your battery life. It is also compatible with the various webtop peripherals such as the Lapdock.
Speaking of battery life, Motorola promises 12.5hr talk time with 8.5 days standby time from the 1785mAh battery.
We'll have to wait to see if Motorola will change from tradition and bring this latest Droid to the UK but we won't be holding our breath - which is a pity as it's a decent phone with an excellent keyboard.
