Moto claims Android cameraphone first

Talks up XT720's USP

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Motorola has introduced the first Android 2.1 smartphone... with a xenon flash.

A boon to mobile phone photography fans, to be sure, but a clear sign it's getting harder for phone firms to come up with USPs for their products.

Still, the XT720 has an impressive spec: a 8Mp camera, 480p video capture capability, 8GB Micro SD card in the box, HDMI cable in the box and a 3.7in, 854 x 480 display if you want to look at footage and stills on the handset rather than an HD TV.

The XT720 is a 3G HSDPA/HSUPA handset with 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth too. It has GPS on board - and Motorola's MotoNav route guidance app - and an FM radio.

Moto claimed the handset's 1390mAh battery is good for up to nine hours' talk time or 320 hours on stand-by.

Motorola hasn't said how much the XT720 will cost over here, or when it will appear on shop shelves, though it did say Expansys, Play.com and Clove will be taking advance orders on 11 June.

Well, except Clove, which is already doing so, ahead of 1 July availability. Its price: £434, SIM-free. ®
