Let’s begin with the MOTO MT710, which we already know about, since its official site has been up for a while now. This Motorola phone will use China’s own 3G standard; TD-SCDMA (Time Division Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access) network. So is most likely that it won’t make it to the States.

But the other two new devices from Motorola; the XT701 (aka Sholes) and the XT800 have a chance to make it here. Something worth mentioning is, these three new Motorola smartphones run Android and have a nice 3.7-inch 854 x 480 display. And they also come with most of the goodies you come to expect from an Android phone. For now, Chinese people will be enjoying these Motorola phones, but we may see them later next year making their way into Europe and the US.

Let’s begin with the specifications of the Motorola XT701 (aka Sholes):
