Motorola Motoroi Gets Upgraded on its Way to the UK


Posted on May 11th, by Evan Selleck in archive. No Comments

When the Motorola Motoroi was announced late last year, everyone was shocked at two things: its curious hardware design, along with the fact that it didn’t seem to be running Motorola’s BLUR User Interface (UI). To make it all better, though, Motorola managed to get Android 2.0 under the hood, which made plenty of people out there pretty happy. And, while the Motoroi may not be the hottest ticket on the market, Motorola obviously wants to get their interesting piece of technology in as many markets as possible.

But before the device can make it to the UK’s market, it has to get improved. What’s a better way to do that, then to have it get some significant hardware improvements under the hood? Let’s go over the similarities, first: Android 2.1, 3.7-inch WVGA touchscreen, 8MP camera with Xenon flash on the back, 720p video recording, and an included HDMI port.

The word on the street is that the processor under the hood is about to get significantly improved before it lands in the UK, which makes us wonder if the legendary 1GHz Snapdragon processor is going to find its way into another handset. The Motoroi would definitely improve with the beefier stats, so we hope it gets it. As soon as we know more, we’ll pass it along.
