Lumpy Motorola MOTOROI Gets Official, Only Useful In Korea

Remember that leaked Motorola, with the right-side tumour? It’s just got official as the MOTOROI (great fun if you say it aloud), and while it’s destined for Korea only, it has an extra trick up its sleeve: handwriting recognition.

In actual fact, the MOTOROI has five ways to get those words across, with a 3×4 keypad, full QWERTY, half-QWERTY, handwriting and writing pad listed. The specs sound great, certainly improving upon the CLIQ and Droid’s internals.

Running on Android 2.0, it’s got native apps multitouch on that 3.7-inch WVGA screen, takes photos with an 8-megapixel camera, records video in 720p, and has an HDMI out and a T-DMB TV tuner for watching 24 of South Korea’s channels. 8GB of storage and a microSD card slot are pretty decent for storage options, and just like with its older brother the Droid, it comes with a docking station.

Unless you live in Korea, it’s unlikely you’ve read this far. It’ll be on sale next month exclusive to SK Telecom, though don’t hold your breath on it making a western world appearance any time soon. [Motorola]
