Moto 智尚 为你非凡

2010, a year that I need to complete and close out my Mega Project.

2010, a year therefore I have no budget allocation for underwater world holidays.

2010, a year therefore I have no budget allocation for gadget too.

2010, a year that the Jack Bond is struggling to survive.

2010, a year that I would have to live with Jack Bond that is currently in coma.

Finally, before 2010 becomes history, tropical Santa Claus arrived with a box...


Unboxing...




The Motorola XT800 Android Smart Phone. Check out the detailed spec here.

Hold it in my palm, the phone is not as heavy as I thought because of its chrome and glossy design. It feels just a little heavier than the Jack Bond phone but definitely bigger in dimensions...





It measures 120x62x11mm and 137g with 3.7" huge screen, comparable to iPhone 4's 115x58.6x9.3mm and 137g. No wonder it's called the iPhone killer in China.



On the left, a mini USB port with cover for charging and data transfer, as well as Up and Down button for volume. On the right, a mini HDMI 1.4 port with cover and Camera button. Yes! An HDMI port! And this genius is capable of 720p playback and output to any HDTV! On the top, a Power and Search buttons with the headphone connector sits at the middle.

Now to the back and inside the phone...


5MP camera with LED flash. An 8GB micro SDHC 4 card and dual SIM that supports CDMA and GSM networks simultaneously! Cool huh? Unfortunately, you only get 3G on the CDMA network whereas GSM is only up to GPRS. Bad bad bad to use here. Sigh~

Anyway, it seems the rubberized back cover is made of high grade rubber...


It's nice to grip and not sticky.

That's the phone. The box bundles with a bunch of manuals...


And accessories...


From top: ear phone, batter, USB cable, USB power plug, HDMI cable and a case.

Overall, nice package, very solid build and light in weight for such a size, full with accessories and looks promising. I shall check into its software, the Android 2.1.
