    Is Motorola saving money by skipping Windows Mobile 6.5?

    Read this. Android may be considered a smartphone until Micro$oft stops playing around with WinMo7.

    Until Microsoft starts paying more attention to WM 7, companies like Motorola aren't willing to just bide their time.

    Motorola handset originally slated to run Windows Mobile has changed Operating Systems mid-stream, and will be released with Android by the end of 2009's third quarter. The "Iron Man," or "Heron" as it's called on the AT&T document, includes all the Windows Mobile specs (IE6, Pocket Outlook, Exchange ActiveSync) with the caveat "Specifications subject to change due to move to Android."

    Both Motorola and AT&T declined comment today.

    Oh I understand that, but the Sawgrass above isn't Android either. If it were I can't imagine they'd list "full html browser" as a selling point since it having Android would make that an obvious point. Also the description specifically says "messaging device", that moniker is normally reserved for a dumb phone with a full qwerty.

    I agree ugly, the tiny chicklet buttons.
    What is with the pebble shaped slider phones?

    Very bad......

    And the specs are not what a waited 2 years to see.
    A whole 100 Mhz of user memory and a 2Meg camera.

    This has to be a cheap messaging phone, not the promised show stopping smartphone promised for so long.

    Yeah, you are right. The article title threw me off: Motorola's Sawgrass, Android-powered Heron. The Heron is Android.

    Here is another good article Motorola Switches Phone From Windows Mobile To Android
