Motorola WX445 spotted with Verizon branding

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.

    Will. Not. Buy.

    I do not want MotoBlur aka “wait 6 months for the update”. CDMA sucks balls.

      Well… not sure what you’re gonne buy besides the Nexus One. HTC has Sense, Samsung has TouchWiz, SONY Ericsson has UX, Motorola has MotoBLUR, and even LF has their own UI on top of Android.

      Yes, there are a few exceptions here and there, but most new phones running Android have a custom UI which will delay the update process.

      Also, if you’re reading this blog, you’re most likely a power user who’s not even interested in a entry level phone with a small screen and slow processor. This is somethign you would get for your kids instead of the LG Chocolate, not a replacement for the DROID Eris.

        Samsung Galaxy S (Vibrant, Captivate, fascinate, epic4g) will probably get supported by Cyanogenmod. They’ve already rooted the Galaxy S. If that happens, that would make the galaxy series the best of the breed right now in terms of the android experience. Touchwiz on the vibrant isn’t bad, but it’ll be nothing compared to what the mod community will come out with.

    Why are all these other phones “ready” and “optimized” (quote motorola) to run blur 2.1, but not the cliq?

    I would be willing to bet that these custom ui’s are built to hold these devices back. Its like a stop gap between having too update and continue to support the device and releasing a new one. we will update the phone here in 6 months or you can buy this new one that just came out that is way better. Go to hell wireless carriers. Android has spun out of control.
