Say hello to the new Motorola WX404 mobile phone. Remember, it landed in the FCC last week and finally it has gotten official. The device is also known as the Motorola Grasp. The Motorola WX404 cellphone is a CDMA/EDVO/AWS and it will be released by MetroPCs for the US market. We have found out that this mobile phone will have its release date by the third quarter of the year, though we don’t know the exact date yet – hmm, seems as though the only thing that’s left to do is to sit back and relax while waiting for more information in terms of its release.
We all know, that Motorola’s been pushing their way to the Android trend, however this one’s different as it doesn’t run Android. Instead, the handset boasts that it is an Eco-friendly device because it is BFR and PVC free. In short, it’s made out of recyclable materials.
Specs and features-wise, the WX404 comes equipped with a 2.2-inch LCD screen at 220 x 176 pixel resolution. The handset is also packed with a full QWERTY keyboard, stereo Bluetooth 2.1, GPS, music player, a 1.3-megapixel camera, a 3.5 mm audio jack, microUSB port, and a microSD card slot as a support for expansion of up to 8GB. The downside though is that the Motorola Grasp doesn’t have an Infrared connection, or Wi-Fi (a factor that mobile users look for in a phone). Still, consumers can expect features of full messaging capabilities such as SMS, MMS, and IM and email.
As for the rest of the specs and features, the handset also offers additional ringtones, Web browsing, voice memo, and Java enabled applications. The WX404 has dimensions of 2.4×3.7×0.5 inches and weighs 3.7 ounces. It is accompanied by a Li-Ion battery which promises talk time of 5.3 hours, and standby time of 429 hours.
The company’s still mum about the price, though we don’t expect to break the bank to avail the handset. Also, there aren’t any words yet as to whether the WX404 mobile phone will be released in other regions.
