Motorola widens Microsoft smartphone line

Contracts awarded

Motorola will next year add three more handsets based on Microsoft's Smartphone OS.

So claims Taiwan's Chinese-language newspaper, the Commercial Times. And it says local manufacturers Compal and Chi Mei have been awarded the production contracts.

Chi Mei currently produces Motorola's MPx200 Microsoft-based smartphone, launched last autumn. The contract manufacturer will now work on the MPx220, which adds a digicam and Bluetooth wireless networking to the original model - both notable absences from the MPx200.

Compal will churn out the MPx100 and MPx300, though specifications were not given. ®
