SlashGear had the opportunity to play with the Motorola A3100’s user interface today and must say we are pleasantly surprised. There are many widgets laid out in a wheel that can be scrolled left or right a lot like you would when using a mobile phone with TouchFLO 3D.

The Motorola A3100 was a lot lighter than it appears, weighing in at only 119g.  The front of the device has a 2.8-inch touchscreen with a talk and end button on both sides of a scroll ball that is just like that found on a BlackBerry smartphone. The 3.1-megapixel camera has a designated camera key, autofocus and designated camera key. You may also notice the forward facing VGA camera for video calling.

If you enjoy music or taking a lot of photos the microSD card slot provides up to 16GB of expanded storage. The A3100 runs Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional with a Qualcomm MSM7201A 528 Mhz processor and 256 MB flash memory. There is also support for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS with AGPS.  The standard Li-Ion 1170 mAh battery provides up to 298 hours of standby with up to 6 hours and 48 minutes of talk time.
