ZDNet had a first look of Motorola's new clamshell Smartphone which will use Microsoft's Smartphone 2002 OS and and will released on Orange's network later this fall:
Motorola, Orange and Microsoft have unveiled a new phone running Windows Mobile 2002 for Smartphones. This is not the anticipated update of Microsoft's Smartphone platform, but a slightly tweaked version of the software we've previously seen in the two incarnations of Orange's SPV.
The key physical feature that makes Mototola's MPx200 different from the SPV is its clamshell design. The MPx200 has a 176-by-220-pixel 16-bit colour screen, plus an LED on the outside. The standard internal arrangement of a combined navigation and activation button plus softkeys is not surprising. However, the phone is small and light (48mm by 89mm by 27mm and 113g), and with a 200MHz processor it's expected to be an efficient device. Ten megabytes of the 32MB of Flash ROM is available for the user, and there's an easily accessible SD card slot that supports SDIO. The MPx200 will ship with a 16MB SD card.
