All in all, the smartphone should prove a great addition to Verizon's offering, at least this is what the marketing materials Motorola published suggest, along with the leaked specifications on the phone's hardware.

The smartphone is also said to include a large 4..3-inch touchscreen display on board, as well as with an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with support for HD video recording.
It runs under the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, though we would not be surprised if Motorola announced that it will receive Ice Cream Sandwich soon, especially now that Google is preparing to take over.
As stated above, all these detail on the new Motorola phone are only rumors for the time being, but they should all be put to a rest in several hours, so stay tuned to learn the news.
