Rumors were rampant that Motorola's touchscreen-based Atila
would be launching somewhere in the wide world next quarter
, and said whispers are shaping up to be right on target. The typically reliable iDNES
has it that the A3000 (same device, people) has been certified for use by China's telecommunications authority, which pretty much signals that it'll be on sale in the not-too-distant future. Specs wise, we're told to expect a 528MHz processor, Windows Mobile running the show, Bluetooth, a microSDHC card slot and a QVGA display. It's not certain the cost nor the exact release date, but we'd say that should all be much clearer at CES. Hear that Moto? Much clearer at CES.
