Motorola Citrus Android Phone Coming on Verizon, Features Backtrack Touch Panel and Bing

Written By Sam on 6 October 2010

Motorola has released a full touch smartphone called Citrus to be available on Verizon Wireless network. Running on Android 2.1 and flaunting a 3-inch QVGA capacitive touchscreen, the Citrus is an entry-level affordable CDMA device with features that are basic. There is no word yet on whether Motorola will release an Android 2.2 (Froyo) update for the phone in the future or whether it will be launching a GSM variant of the handset.

Notable specs include a 3 megapixel camera and a Backtrack touch panel aimed at enabling easy navigation through mobile web pages, home screens and e-mail messages. It will come with CDMA 1X /EV-DO Rev. 0 connectivity and will hit stores in the US in the fourth quarter of this year.
