Motorola Grasp reminds us company still does Android-free gear

Chris Ziegler

It may not be the EX112 / EX115 they seem to be getting down in Brazil, but the Motorola Grasp isn't far off, proving that Motorola's still committed to delivering non-Android phones in market segments where... well, Android might kinda be overkill. The CDMA / EV-DO phone is capable of operating both on 800 / 1900MHz and on AWS bands, meaning we wouldn't be surprised to see it land on regionals like MetroPCS where AWS has started to play a prominent role. It's got a 1.3 megapixel cam, 3.5mm headphone jack, AGPS, stereo Bluetooth, microSD expansion to 8GB, and -- something Moto has been playing up since the Renew -- an eco-friendly design with a completely recyclable shell when you've finished texting on that QWERTY keypad for the last time. Look for it to launch this quarter.
