Motorola® won’t update Charm or Flipout beyond Android™ 2.1

Motorola handsets are the ones that have gained prominence and importance over the past decade. Starting from the very basic models, the brand has introduced a variety of apps and services through its upgraded handsets and a variety of models. The latest news doing the rounds in the technology circles is about the decision of Motorola to pull back its plans to update the Charm (T-Mobile) and Flipout (AT&T) handsets with Android 2.2 Froyo. These smartphones were released with Android 2.1. This further adds them to the growing list of Motorola handsets being left behind on older versions of Android. Thus, there have been more devices in the list that would never see an upgrade. Most recently, the company decided that the Cliq XT would stay on Android 1.5 and it would not have features such as live wallpapers or Google Maps navigation.

After updating its Android software upgrade timeline, Motorola had said that the Flipout and Charm handsets would remain on 2.1 for as long as possible. We can only hope that the new handsets such as Droid X or Atrix 4G get more than one update. Probably the problems arise from having to work with a lot of hardware configurations and form factors. On the other hand, these issues can also stem from the Motoblur interface that overlay Android. It could be possible that Moto integrated the custom UI too heavily, which prevents it from acting quickly for rolling out updates. There could be another likely scenario wherein these phones are not being sold out as much as what was anticipated, and that it would be a loss of time and resources on working on updates for such a limited quantity of devices.

Motorola® Atrix

Motorola and Lenovo have introduced products which defeat the concept of mobile phones, in light of their introduction of tablets, which, when connected to their docking stations perform like laptops. It is definitely an interesting concept of the smart phone in the 4G world today. Are we looking at carrying our laptops in our palms, or, something beyond that? Both these giants have proven that we can move around with a mobile phone, without the bulk of the laptop, and performing as a laptop when we want it to, back in the office or home premises where we need more competing power, beyond what we have on the move.

This Atrix attempt, of merging the two worlds of the smart phone and the PC, sounds great. With the dock you no more have to keep playing with a small little virtual keyboard and can use the full keyboard and mouse provided. The long battery life and the unique built in charger, will provide long haul operations like on flights, and with a larger display also. The resolution on the dock screen, a 15 inch display seems a bit low, and may call for improvement.

Motorola Atrix also has a sleek media player application with fairly decent audio and video. The docking station or the laptop shell as we call it, is using, a modification of the standard Android OS, and in future may be run using a Motorola version of Linux. The web browser on the laptop seems good. The shortcuts to folders, directories, file-browser, Mozilla Firefox etc. seem to be an interesting development. You can also make and receive phone calls using the speaker phone provided in the laptop, or the Bluetooth headset of the phone, allowing you to do everything that you do on your phone even when docked.
