New Motorola handsets
After yesterday's report that covered four new Motorola handsets coming to Verizon, a Wednesday leak from the same source reveals three more Moto cellphones heading to the provider in 2009. The Niagra slider phone is similar in design to the Flash revealed yesterday, with similar sharp angles. The handset's flat, metallic keypad looks like it was lifted straight from the older RAZR, though other specs and features are thus far unknown.
In turn, the Fairbanks handset is a rugged flip phone with push-to-talk (PTT) support that doubles as an MP3 player with dedicated and easily accessible music buttons under the external display. The Harmony is yet another flip phone design with dedicated though touch-sensitive music controls that include play, pause, forward and mute buttons and a fifth, unidentified touch control.
Prices or specific launch dates for any of the handsets have not yet been revealed.
