Motorola WX445

Verizon seems to be the Android king with all of its recent handsets running Google's mobile OS, and now we have another phone to add to that list.  The Motorola WX445 is running Android 2.1 and is a low-end option for Android fans who don't always need the biggest and the baddest.  The device has a flashless camera with an unknown megapixel count, a touchscreen size between 2.5 and 3 inches, and an 1170 mAh battery.  The tipster that leaked the device to Engadget says it's running BLUR, however it may just be the newer not-quite-BLUR skin seen on the DROID X.  The tipster also said that it's "not a very impressive phone," resembling a cheap-looking, keyboardless Palm Pre Plus.

The Motorola WX445, which I'm sure will receive a name change before launch, definitely seems like a good fit for someone who wants an Android phone on the cheap.  Perhaps even a first-time smartphone buyer who may be a little intimidated by the gigantic DROID X.  I don't know about you, dear readers, but the Pre Plus form factor is something that I'm interested in because it's small but usable, as well as easily pocketable.  There's still not much solid information, including any sort of release date, but we'll be sure to keep you updated as we learn more.
