Motorola A1010

 Motorola A1010 Cancelled
14th February 2005

Essentially a progressive upgrade of the well-received A1000, the A1010 is a Symbian based 3G smartphone with a 2 megapixel digital camera, Bluetooth, expandable TransFlash memory and an impressive host of other features.

The "A" class of 3G handsets have always been class leaders, and with the A1010 Motorola promise to keep leading the pack. To a certain extent, the A1010 can be seen as a rival to handsets such as the Sony Ericsson P910i, and although the A1010 lacks the tiny QWERTY keyboard of its rival, it is hugely ahead in other terms.

The Motorola A1010 supports 3G and tri-band GSM/GPRS connectivity, and comes with a large 208x320 pixel touch-sensitive colour display. On the rear of the A1010 is the 2 megapixel camera with 4X digital zoom, with a VGA resolution sub-camera on the front for video calling.

MP3s and video clips can be played back on the A1010, and data can be stored on removable TransFlash memory (if you can get hold of it). You can do more than just play back media files, however, as the A1010 comes with the Picsel Document viewer which allows you to read common Microsoft Office documents and PDF files. As you'd guess, the Motorola A1010 comes with good PIM (personal information management) functions and can be synchronised with a PC using Bluetooth or a USB cable. There's also an email client and web browser.

The A1010 supports downloadable Java and Symbian applications, themes and polyphonic ringtones. Where available it can also use A-GPS (global position system) to help locate you and offer locally-relevant content.

As with some of the other recently announced Motorola handsets, this is scheduled for release towards the end of 2005 and the supplied images are clearly computer generated. Nonetheless, we think the A1010 is a useful looking handset and look forward to seeing it.
