Motorola Linux phone ships in U.S.

Filed under
Linux

Motorola announced that its LiMo-compliant Moto U9 phone is now available unlocked for GSM networks in the U.S. Available in gray, pink, or purple, the music-oriented U9 has a rounded, contemporary flip-phone form factor, highlighted by a seemingly borderless OLED external display.

The U9 was the most significant new phone design of the initial round of 18 LiMo Platform-compliant phones announced back in February. Billed by Motorola as being "stylish" and "chic," the 3.1-ounce, 3.5 x 1.9 x 0.6-inch clamshell stands out with its seemingly borderless external display. The 1.45-inch, 128x160-resolution OLED display shows animated screen savers, while nearby touch-sensitive control surfaces let users run their music player via touch, without having to flip the phone open. An internal 2-inch TFT display, meanwhile, offers QVGA resolution, and the phone can also be controlled via "speaker independent" voice recognition, says Motorola.
