It's been about a week since spy shots of the Motorola Alexander surfaced, and it appears that it will be followed by an inbred cousin dubbed "Atila" that was born without a QWERTY keyboard. It will also be the first Motorola device with tri-band UMTS/HSDPA. Other features include: quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, 7.2Mbps HSDPA, 1.8Mbps HSUPA, 2.8″ QVGA 240 x 320 screen, Wi-Fi b/g, a Qualcomm 7201A chipset and Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. As usual, no release date or pricing has been announced just yet. [BGR]



The phone looks good, but that is not Motorola's problem. They need to veer away from Windows Mobile if they are going to get anywhere. So, unless they develop their own intuitive operating system, this will just be another Windows Mobile phone.
