Motorola have taken the wraps off of their latest Android 2.1 smartphone, the 10.9mm thick Motorola XT720, and it’s basically a keyboard-free version of the DROID. Packing an 8-megapixel autofocus camera with Xenon flash and 720p HD video recording, the XT720 also has an HDMI port, 3G/HSPA and a 3.7-inch 480 x 854 capacitive touchscreen.

There’s no MOTOBLUR, however, though you do get all the usual Google Android apps together with a trial of MOTONAV. The whole thing measures in at 60.9 x 115.95 x 10.9 mm and has WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, an FM radio, accelerometer, digital compass, GPS and a proximity sensor.

The XT720 is set to hit preorder at Expansys, Play and Clove this Friday, with a general release this month. No word on carrier partners at present, nor pricing, and they also won’t confirm when – or if – the smartphone will get an Android 2.2 Froyo update or launch in the US.

We’ve shared our first-impressions of the XT720 over at SlashGear, so head over there for the full report.
