    Motorola is working hard these days on Droid's, and the latest soon to be released will not be on your "to get" list. This new device is going under the low end device line and will be called the Ciena and thankfully the device will not hold the Droid title.

    This new devices spec sheet is as low end as Motorola can get without labeling it a Razr. The device will have a 3 inch screen, 240×320 pixels, a 528MHz Qualcomm processor, 256MB of RAM with 100MB of ROM, and 3MP camera with no autofocus or flash.

    The device will have some good things like MotoBlur, but sadly we cannot say for sure that this is the Droid X version or the horrible Moto Devour. The device will also not have the social integration and might not come with any Google services installed due to the below minimum required specs.

    Does this even sound attractive to you?

    Na,
    I don't think so. I mean after the experience you will get with this device.... You will not want Android as much, which is usual if you have a crab phone.

    ^Yup. Yea looking at the specs, Moto just said the hell with this .....unless this will be considered a regular cellphone.

    I cant see them making this a smartphone.

    This has got to be for prepaid. You'll see it at a Kmart near you soon.

    I think when someone buys this, they'll know upfront it's not a high-end phone. I suspect it'll be sold at a very low price point, and hopefully be a great offering to people who can't afford to make the trek into the high end phone market.

    Might contribute a little bit to Android sales overall, if it's priced really low. I mean, people know that when something's dirt cheap, it's not *meant* to compete with an iPhone.

    The specifications alone are so archaic and just terrible. Why even put something out like this. Maybe it is for (and please take no offense to the demographics I am referring) to elder customers or tweens that need devices that are current but not extensive in their program capabilities for lack of knowledge about os used by current customers that vary in age. So maybe this was a smart move by Motorola . I do like the round edges of the phone but that's it.

    I see this as the phone parents will get kids when they add them onto their accounts. FOr the adult Android user, its not good enough, but for a kid, it's better than a normal phone.

    Why does Motorola eve waste their time developing crap...... It's like they have a lousy development team that works when they're high, and then they have the Droid development team that's fresh out of college, and paid modestly... To be honest I am a little iffy on trusting Motorola with something like my phone, but here I am with a Droid X.....

    Exactly. This is the prepaid model. Better than any of your other options, if you ask me
