Moto Droid tablet spotted as China Unicom phone?
A phone coming to China Unicom, the XT701, is believed to preview the upcoming Motorola Droid tablet first spotted earlier this week. Apart from the photos, which show a large device on par with Sony Ericsson's XPERIA X10, a shot of the settings screen confirms that the device will run on Android 2.1. There is no hardware keyboard of any sort, unlike the standard Droid, but the phone has an unusual "hump" on one side.
The device supports GSM and WCDMA-based (UMTS or HSPA) 3G networks, and has a built-in GPS with Google Maps Navigation. The photos also show a 5-megapixel camera with a built-in flash and a photo editor program. A 3.5mm headphone jack will let users plug in their own headsets or headphones. An FM radio tuner is also integrated.
Despite what is probably and early look at the Motorola Droid tablet phone, there is no indication on when or even if the device is due for a North American release; if a version of the Droid tablet, it may ship early next year. [via Androidin]
