Motorola Glam is expected to be launched in India next week. It will be the first 3G capable dual SIM Android phone in the market. The phone is most likely to feature Android 2.2 Froyo, although it currently runs on version 2.1 in China and Korea. Glam will also be the first dual SIM phone with 3G capability to run on both CDMA and GSM networks.
For the consumer it will offer an excellent choice of opting for GSM technology for voice and CDMA for cheaper high speed data access. The phone has a decent specification list with an HDMI port, Wifi, Bluetooth along with 3G, GSM and CDMA connectivity. Motorola Glam has a 3.7 inch landscape touch display with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels.
The device has built-in GPS navigation and most likely comes with Google Maps. Glam supports viewing and editing of popular document formats including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF. It also has an A4 paper optical-character recognition software combined with translation features. The phone has a 5 megapixel camera with dual LED flash, autofocus and digital zoom.
Video can be watched on an HDTV by connecting the phone to the TV using its HDMI (720p) output. A 3.5 mm jack for a headphone has been provided, but ear pieces need to be bought in addition to the phone. Motorola claims that the Glam lasts for approximately 5.7 hours of talk time or 4 days on standby on a full charge of its 1390 mAh battery. The phone is light weight at 137 grams and measuring 120 x 61.8 x 11.4 mm, it is pretty sleek as well.
