Specifications for Motorola's upcoming entry-level Android handset, the Morrison, have leaked, and anybody hoping the company might have injected a little interest along with what's presumably going to be a low purchase price will have to go home disappointed. The parts list sounds mighty reminiscent of HTC's existing Android devices, with a 528MHz Qualcomm MSM7201A processor, 256MB of RAM, a 512MB ROM and 320 x 480 HVGA touchscreen display.
There's also WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, quadband GSM and triband WCDMA (900/1700 or 1900/2100), together with a 3-axis accelerometer, class 6 MicroSD slot supporting 32GB cards, USB 2.0 with a microUSB connector and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The camera is a 5-megapixel unit with autofocus, geotagging and 25fps 320 x 240 video recoridng, and there's both standalone GPS and A-GPS. The Morrison will support Exchange ActiveSync push email, has a digital compass, proximity sensor and ambient light sensor.
As for a release date, the Motorola Morrison is tipped to arrive on October 21st on T-Mobile USA. No word of pricing as yet, but this is definitely being positioned as an entry-level, budget device.
