The Motorola Morrison Android mobile phone has been renamed the Dext and will arrive in the UK on monthly contract plans next month.
Specifications confirmed for the new mobile phone, the first from Motorola to utilise Google’s operating system, include a full QWERTY keyboard, a five megapixel camera and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The handset will also offer expandable memory up to 32GB and will run the company’s Motoblur software, which aims to improve the social networking experience that Android mobiles provide.
Orange has announced it will be carrying the phone in the UK and is expected to announce price points for contract deals imminently.
Other Android phones set to hit the market over the next few months include an LG phone, the HTC Tattoo and the Samsung Galaxy Lite – a slimmed down version of the Samsung Galaxy i7500.
The rush to embrace the platform follows the massive sales success of the T-Mobile G1 and the HTC Magic, both of which have sold over a million units.
