Moto on MING in Spring 08

Motorola will not only update its MING touchscreen phones with the A1600 but with a budget model, the company's Taiwan chief Bill Chen has confirmed to the press. While the company's current A1200 phone (pictured) has always been targeted at upscale Chinese and others who need touch input to handwrite their local languages, a second phone will be aimed at a wider range. It remains too early to reveal the specifications, Chen says, but both devices will support at least "2.5G" Internet speeds over supporting cellular networks and run the Linux-based MOTOMAGX interface.

Both phones are slated to be released in spring 2008; no unveiling date has been revealed but may occur roughly in time with the advent of the Mobile World Congress event held in February. A US version of at least one of the phones is expected at a later date given the release of an unlocked MING A1200 in the country with the addition of EDGE Internet access.
