Moto Android Early Leaks

Motorola's first Android phone will be considered a high-end device but will have a unique angle, a Coroflot job posting found by AndroidGuys shows. While Android is said to be useful for both high- and low-end phones, Motorola's first device will be regarded as a smartphone. In a unique twist, however, the company says it will focus on "social networking" with the handset. The effort positions the phone as a device for mainstream users rather than the business audience Motorola has normally courted with its Windows Mobile-based Q series.

Technical details of the phone are expectedly left out of the listing, though the focus would suggest an emphasis on the keyboard. The company has also readily adopted 3G, Wi-Fi and now GPS on various levels with devices like the Q 11. Android isn't believed to be surfacing on Motorola's hardware until 2009 but could see a launch with Sprint as soon as the early portion of the new year; it's unclear whether the first model will be that described in the job posting or a new example.
