Details of the Motorola MB520 "Kobe" leak

Soon there’ll be a new Android phone in AT&T Town. A phone goin’ by the name of Kobe. Moto Kobe.

Details have leaked of the device from both the UPnP Forum, and the Wi-Fi Alliance, but today, Engadget got some insider knowledge on the matter, including a couple of benchmark screenshots, and a run down of the specs.

The device will be a slate form-factor running a Droid 2/X style Motoblur UI, on a 3.5″ 480 x 854 LCD screen.

Under the hood will be a 800MHz TI OMAP processor (Engadget say either a 3440 or an underclocked 3630), PowerVR SGX 530 GPU, 512MB RAM, 2GB internal storage with a bundled 2GB microSD card, and a 3 megapixel camera (without flash).

A 3 megapixel camera seems peculiar in this day and age, but I know I’d take a good quality 3MP camera over some of the 5MP phone cameras I’ve used (*cough* HTC Hero *cough*), but, judging by the lack of a flash, the use of a 3MP sensor is first and foremost a cost consideration, rather than an attempt at quality over quantity.

Engadget’s source also says that it is heading to AT&T, and will come loaded with Swype, Vlingo, and DNLA support, but — sadly — there are no other details right now.

As usual, we’ll be here to let you know such matters as they emerge.
