It looks like the Droid will soon be replaced as Motorola’s best Android phone because the feature-rich Motoroi is expected to hit the U.S. market in March.
The handset is essentially a keyboard-less Droid with an 8-megapixel camera and a Xenon flash. The promo video (embedded below) indicates it has a touch-to-focus ability, and the hardware is beefy enough to record 720p video. The phone is packing Android 2.0, and the picture gallery has also been tweaked and looks a lot better than the Droid’s. It also has Wi-Fi, 3G, GPS, up to 32 GB of storage, and multitouch out of the box, but that will likely be dropped when it hits the United States.
The Motoroi was recently introduced in South Korea, and the company’s Korean leader Rick Wolochatiuk specifically confirmed its March release in the United States. There’s no word on which carrier this will come to or pricing, but look for it get a name change before being released. I’m not too excited about the chrome bezel but I think ditching the keyboard is the right move.
Check out the promo video of the Motoroi’s camera in action and let us know what you think.
