Motorola MT710 due in China on December 28th

Motorola will officially begin selling its MT710 Zhiling smartphone in China later this month under the China Mobile Ophone brand. The device is similar to what North Americans know as the Android-powered Droid, and has been spotted earlier. The Chinese Motorola handset will not use stock Android, however, but instead a proprietary version of the open source OS created by China Mobile, along with supporting China's own 3G standard, TD-SCDMA.

A Wi-Fi function that supports a special Chinese protocol will also be part of the specs of the MT710. The handset will not have a QWERTY keyboard and instead rely exclusively on a 3.7-inch touchscreen for user input. A 5-megapixel camera is another known main feature.

The MT710 will go on sale in China on December 28th, but pricing has not yet been announced. [via Yahoo]
