Motorola announcing Android plans today, but what's coming?

Motorola's out in San Francisco today at GigaOM's Mobilize 09 event to finally dish the real story on its Android-flavored future -- and considering that T-Mobile's CTO Cole Brodman is co-keynoting with Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha, it's reasonable to think that T-Mobile will once again be leading the way for carrier adoption of the platform in the US (Verizon's rumored Sholes, on the other hand, might be a no-show). We'll know soon enough what's going down, but user agent profiles recently published on Moto's own site detail two Android-powered devices -- model numbers MB200 and MB300 -- that feature UMTS (and very likely HSPA in some form), HVGA displays, and in the case of the MB300, probably a 5 megapixel cam considering a mention of 2592 x 1944 resolution. The MB200's profile oddly mentions 640 x 480 in its place, and it really doesn't sit well with us to think that Moto would be working on a 3G HVGA Android phone with a measly VGA cam that reeks of 2004 technology -- but all will revealed soon enough. We're live on the scene for the keynote that starts at 1:25PM ET / 10:25AM PT, so keep an eye out for our coverage!
