Motorola could soon have a new touchscreen phone

Tech website Engadget has been told that a new Motorola phone with a full touchscreen is "almost ready for retail".

According to a source it simply calls "an anonymous tipster", the handset may include a Kodak-branded five-megapixel camera with a xenon flash and – possibly – Google's Android operating software.

However, Engadget countered this by stating that Android's inclusion is "not very likely" due to the lack of "start" and "back" buttons on the device.

This also rules out the chance of it coming equipped with Windows Mobile 6.5, the article said.

"It seems that Moto might be working on some serious hardware to compete with ... well, anything," the website added.

Those wanting to sell their mobile phone and get an improved model might want to see what current handsets Motorola has to offer, such as the Aura, Jewel and Z10.

Also available is the U9, which is a smooth and rounded shape available in pink or purple colour schemes.
