Motorola has formally announced its upcoming Microsoft Windows Mobile-based smart phone, the MPx220, almost a month after a preliminary press release briefly appeared on the company's web site.

The MPx220's hardware specifications remain the same, but its introduction has also been put back, from Q3 to Q4, a new press release reveals.

Motorola MPx220As previously reported, the handset features a 176 x 220 270,000-colour display and an integrated 1.23 megapixel digicam with a 3x digital zoom and flash. The original release said 1.3Mp, but we were told soon afterwards by Motorola staffers that it should have read '1.2Mp'.

The handset supports Bluetooth, and includes 64MB of Flash ROM, but there's no indication of how much RAM is on board. However, there's a Mini SD card slot capable of taking a 512MB memory card. The unit weighs 113g and measures 8.9 x 4.8 x 2.7cm. Its design is broadly similar to that of the 200, but the screen hinge is mounted further down the keypad half of the clamshell device. The 220 will be offered in silver and black colour schemes.

The MPx220 will offer quad-band support - 850, 900, 1800 and 1900MHz - GSM and GPRS connectivity.

The smart phone's existence wasfirst revealed last December when it emerged that Chinese manufacturer Chi Mei had been contracted to manufacture a bigger Motorola smart phone line-up. ®
