With only a few days to go before the launch of the DROID X on Verizon, you would think that Motorola and Verizon would be focusing all their attention on a flawless launch. But as usual, the two companies are already looking down the road, working on the next big thing.
OK, “big thing” may be a huge over statement here since the leaked Motorola WX445 will most likely be Motorola’s smallest Android handset to date. The Motorola WX445 will most likely feature a capacitive screen measuring in between 2.5 and 3 inches, a 1170 mAh battery, 3.5mm headphone jack, MotoBLUR, and Android 2.1.
Those who have had the opportunity to play around with the phone describe it as having the look and feel of the Palm Pre, minus the keyboard and build quality. There’s no doubt that Verizon is looking to fill the lower end gap in their Android lineup that was left when they discontinued the HTC made DROID Eris. We are hoping that the Motorola WX445 could finally be the first Android phone to be offered for free on a U.S. carrier, just don’t come knocking on our door when Verizon decides to price it at $99 after a $100 Mail-in rebate.
