Motorola Zeppelin likely headed to T-Mobile on March 10

Gizmodo Brazil posted some new pictures of the Motorola Zeppelin which is likely headed to T-Mobile. Our sources confirmed the device has support for T-Mobile USA 3G bands and TmoNews is reporting a launch date of March 10, 2010.

From what we can tell, this device is part of the CLIQ family of phones without a physical keyboard. It appears there are no additional features to make this device stand out above the rest and it will likely be a new entry-level Android phone for T-Mobile. No price point has been announced, but we would expect it to launch around $149 with 2 year agreement.

Obviously, I don’t think any current Android users would be upgrading to this phone, but it could make a nice device for the younger crowd who is obsessed with social networking.

The phone is supposed to launch with Motoblur powered by Android 1.5, but we expect Motorola will update it to Android 2.1 in Q2 2010.

Rumored specs of the Zeppelin include:

  • Qualcomm MSM7201 528 MHz CPU
  • 512 MB flash ROM, 256 MB RAM
  • 3.1 inch capacitive display HVGA (480×320)
  • 5 megapixel camera with autofocus
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g, GPS, Bluetooth
  • Android 1.5 with Motoblur

    Can tmobile please bring a true successor to the G1 please. When are the next generation(snapdragon processor) of phones coming out with a hardware keyboard.

    I absolutely love the fact that they are releasing multiple phones with Android on it. The more people with Android phones, the faster people realize the iPhone isn’t the end all, be all device.

    The best thing we, as Android supporters, can do is keep our eyes peeled for Android phones around us, strike up conversation and show them apps that we know about that they may be unfamiliar with. Oh, and tell them about A&M.com. :-)

    +1 for thegreattaurus’s comment. All I want is a snapdragon (or similar), keyboard and a decent camera with LED flash. Am I (and apparently others) asking for too much T-Mobile?

    man, this is an ugly ass phone.. Motorola has got to follow the Droid design line: sober, tough, functional and (if the term fits) “masculine”
