The XT720 is already heading to the UK in July, this much we know. And, we've heard plenty of rumors that it's going to show up here locally on T-Mobile USA's network some time in the future. So, where's it missing? How about Germany? That's where you were thinking, right? If you find yourself in Germany and in need of a new Android fix, then it looks like Motorola's got you covered.
Details, details. The Motorola XT720 is an all-touchscreen device, which rounds out at 3.7-inches, featuring a resolution of 480x854. It has Android 2.1 under the hood, and has WiFi, GPS, and Bluetooth connectivity. It also has an HDMI out port, and it has the ability to record video in HD as well. There's going to be an 8GB microSD card pre-installed, so you should have plenty of memory to get done what you need to. On the back, you'll have an 8MP camera with Xenon flash. (Sounds a lot like the Droid X, minus the obvious differences, if you ask us, but that's not all that surprising.)
Unfortunately, if you are in Germany, we don't have a price for you. Motorola was pretty shy on that part. As for a release date? We imagine soon, but again, Motorola was pretty coy about the "important" details. We probably shouldn't keep a countdown clock, though, or a race timer to see who launches it first, T-Mobile or a carrier in Germany. Then again, it might pass the time, so don't hold yourself back if you've got nothing better to do.
