Although not a huge amount is known about the new device, it is likely to be aimed at the market created by Nokia's N900 internet tablet mobile phone.
Rumours suggest that the new smartphone, named the XT701, will sport a large 3.7 inch touch screen using capacitive technology and a high native resolution, making web browsing and media playback central to its operation.
The X701 will also support 3G and HSDPA for mobile internet access and with Android pre-installed it will come with the full set of apps and functions that you would expect from a smartphone running Google's operating system.
Other details include a five megapixel camera, built-in Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth and support for high capacity microSD memory cards of up to 32GB.
Rather than mounting the touch sensitive buttons for controlling the camera and media functions on the side of the device, the leaked photos suggest that Motorola has chosen to place these on a protruding hump towards the base of the phone.
Speculation suggests that the Motorola Android tablet phone will hit the Chinese market first, with US and European editions to follow later in 2010.
