Motorola Quench XT5 diagrammed, spec'd?

Chris Ziegler

If you lost interest after seeing the picture, we can't necessarily say we blame you -- trackballs are so 2009 -- but be that as it may, Motorola still hasn't announced or released its long-rumored Quench XT5 model. The slate has popped up on Cellpassion today with an apparent diagram (from a user's manual, it would seem) along with a bunch of specs that would place it squarely in the low- to midrange of the crowded Android arena: Eclair, integrated FM radio, DivX compatibility, and 3.2-inch HVGA display stand out to us, as does triband 7.2Mbps HSDPA radio. Interestingly, 850MHz isn't one of those 3G bands, which let's us safely rule out a US launch -- logical, of course, considering that the original Quench was a European CLIQ XT in the first place. Around back, you've got a 5 megapixel cam with flash, so not all's lost -- but needless to say, it better be priced aggressively to get any traction at this point.
