Moto MING A1800 Leak

At least one of Motorola's expected replacements for its MING touchscreen phone has been leaked today, says BGR. The MING A1800 is now known to be a truly global phone and will pack not just the quad-band GSM calling of the existing phone (the A1200) but will also offer CDMA for use with Sprint, Verizon, and a handful of international carriers that also use the phone standard. In an equally rare move for a US-made phone, the A1800 will also have dual SIM card slots that allow it to work with two providers at once, such as the user's normal service at home as well as a prepaid service while on vacation.

Besides the extra communication, the new MING should also come with a sharper 3-megapixel camera and a considerably smaller profile than its predecessor. Launch information is unavailable for the phone, though the report casts doubts on the likelihood of an announcement at next week's CTIA phone expo. The use of CDMA makes the phone a likely candidate for sale in the US as an official offering from at least one carrier.

A separate leak of a new MING on sale in China appears to show either a different, more advanced handset or else a closely patterned clone of the Motorola design.

    July is good, then it

    won't interfere with the iPhone Pro launch. Once the new model iPhone is launched, I don't think it will suffer from much competition. RIM makes some fine products, however and I'll be curious to see when they release their touch-screen 9100 model.
