T-Mobile could release the Motorola Charm later this month and it should be offered for free with a 2-year contract. So what kind of specs does this entry-level Android phone pack inside? Our friends over at TmoNews received a tip that the phone is in testing and they have some of the first info on its hardware details.
The Motorola Charm runs Android 2.1 with Motoblur and features a 600 MHz processor, 2.8 inch display (QVGA 320 × 240), 512 MB ROM, 512 MB RAM, and a compact QWERTY keyboard.
No details were provided on the 600 MHz processor, but the specs of the Charm match up nicely with the Flipout, which is another new Motorola phone with a QVGA display. According to Motorola’s developer page for the Flipout, it features a 600 MHz TI OMAP3410 that includes an ARM Cortex A8 core. In theory, this OMAP processor should be powerful enough to run Flash 10.1 when Motorola updates the devices to Android 2.2.
So even though the Charm might not look like the most impressive device, it could be one of the faster phones when compared to T-Mobile’s current Android lineup. The carrier currently has offers no high-end Android devices, but that is set to change with the release of the Samsung Vibrant on July 21st.
