Motorola XT800 to bring high-end Android to Sprint?

Moto XT800 Android due in China and US

Motorola has been developing a high-end full touchscreen phone that could give American CDMA carriers their first high-end, touch-only Android phone from the company. A pair of leaks show the XT800 to center on an 854x480, 3.7-inch touchscreen like that of the Droid but in a more rounded design. It should additionally be more powerful: it should play 720p video to a TV through an HDMI output and capture the same resolution for videos from its 5-megapixel camera.

The handset is known to be getting its earliest launch in China, where China Telecom should carry a version with 3G, GPS and China-preferred features like dual SIM card slots and WAPI wireless on Christmas Day for about $860 without carrier discounts. However, an FCC filing hints the XT800 may arrive in the US next year as the Titanium with EVDO Revision A and destined for either Sprint or Verizon. The former is the most likely as Motorola is already expected to provide a keyboardless Droid early next year. [via Engadget]
