Motorola XT316 introduced to FCC, won't be staying in America

Brad Molen

The FCC spends a good chunk of private time with countless handsets, a majority of them never even making it onto American shelves. The Motorola XT316 took its turn at a meet-and-greet with the Commission, and has the paperwork to prove it. If you're shooting off blank stares in our direction right now, an explanation is in order: the XT316 is an even smaller version of the Droid Pro with a passport specifically stamped for China. Details are scant at the moment, but we do know it will be a 2.8-inch Froyo candybar with a portrait QWERTY keyboard and WCDMA 850 / 2100 bands. If you are at all intrigued by such a device, we're going to break your fragile hearts; the XT316 won't have complete 3G connectivity in the US, so it almost certainly will not be picked up by any of the major carriers.
