MOTORAZR maxx phone kick-starts Motorola's HSDPA charge

Mobile phones

Besides announcing its sleek new MOTOKRZR mobile handset today, Motorola has also unveiled its first HSDPA-capable phones, to take advantage of the 3G broadband networks being rolled out by the operators.

Pick of the bunch is the MOTORAZR maxx, a tarted up version of the 3G RAZR that supports HSDPA and EDGE connectivity, but also boasts a 2.0 megapixel camera (plus another VGA one for video-calls), dedicated keys for its music player application, and a microSD memory card slot.

The handset is expected to be available in the run-up to Christmas this year, hopefully tying in with wider HSDPA launches by the mobile operators. In the UK, Vodafone already offers HSDPA – albeit for laptop users only at the moment – while T-Mobile has announced plans to launch in August. O2, Orange and T-Mobile won’t be far behind.
