Moto WX445 surfaces as Verizon's low-end, touch-only Android

WX445 to be Motorola's starter VZ smartphone

A scoop this Saturday has uncovered a new, low-end Android phone destined for Verizon. Motorola's WX445 -- likely to receive a more elaborate name later -- would be touchscreen-only and have a three-inch or smaller, standard resolution touchscreen. Unlike its cousin the Devour, it wouldn't have a QWERTY keyboard, and is described by an Engadget source as resembling a Palm Pre, only with a cheaper look.

Not much else is known about the phone, but it would have the same lower-profile Blur interface as the Droid X and a small but possibly still adequate 1,170mAh battery. Next to the camera is an unusual square patch; whether that's related to the camera or a backside trackpad isn't known.

Launch info is equally as mysterious, and the phone currently runs Android 2.1 despite the likelihood that the Droid X and original Droid will both have 2.2 before the WX445 arrives. The existence of a working, Verizon-labeled example hints that the wait for the phone may be short and that it could at least be ready before the end of the year.
