Moto Zeppelin would be touch-only

Motorola's third known Android phone may be its first touchscreen-only and first regionalized Android device. A leak Friday points to a device known as the Zeppelin that, unlike the Cliq or Droid, would depend only on its 3.1-inch, 480x320 touchscreen for input but would have advantages primarily for Chinese users; it would have two SIM slots both for regular GSM as well as for China-native CDMA services that can use the removable cards. A look at the side also reveals that it may be the first Android phone with HDMI video out and likely a powerful graphics chipset as a result.

The Zeppelin would moreover bring a 5-megapixel camera and some form of short-range wireless, although whether it's Wi-Fi or China's preferred WAPI standard isn't evident. If put through as designed, it's informally set to launch in China as of early 2010. [via AndroidOS]
