The Motorola A3100 – powerful touchscreen smartphone

Motorola had a busy year last year, releasing numerous mobile handsets including the music playing Motorola ROKR E8 and a whole host of pre-pay devices, but started this year by announcing a brand new Smartphone, the A3100. The A3100 is one of the most powerful Motorola devices to date and features a 2.8” touchscreen display, built-in Wi-Fi and Windows Mobile 6.1 OS.

The Motorola A3100 is quad-band so can work worldwide, and features 3G HSDPA connectivity as well as GPS, multimedia player and a 3 megapixel camera.  Internal memory is 256MB and a microSD card slot is also included, which can take up to 32GB; perfect for storing all of your music and video files on.

As stated before, the Motorola A3100 has the Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system, which is capable of browsing the internet, receiving emails and opening Word and Excel documents. Connecting the device to a PC is easy with either the USB cable or Bluetooth connectivity and a trackball is also included for alternative navigation of the device.

The Motorola A3100 measures just 110 x 59.7 x 13.7mm and weights 199 grams, which is pretty small by today’s standards and battery life is up to 298 hours on standby and 7 hours of talk time.

There is no word on whether or not the device will come to the UK, but being a quad-band device you can expect it to come at some point. The Motorola A3100 will be released in Asia and South America in Q1 2009, with other territories to be confirmed.
