Upgraded MOTOMING coming to US ?
“According to sources, we may see a 3G version of the MOTOMING phone here in the states soon. An upgraded version of the phone would include the 3G capabilities, a 2MP camera with a CIF resolution of 352×288 and livelier menus. I don’t know about you, but I really enjoy menus that are quite lively. No word on when we might see this hitting the US, but it is guessed that AT&T will be one of the first networks to pick it up.” via slashphone.com
