Develop Android Apps for the New Motorola Android Phones in China

Hi,   I’m Jinnan Sun, product manager within MOTODEV - Motorola's ecosystem organization. My day to day role is focused on delivering SDK add-ons for Motorola Android devices. I also help drive the growth of the Android ecosystem in China and the greater Chicago area. Today, I will talk about about four new Androidâ„¢ smartphones we just launched for the China market, along with the resources available on MOTODEV that will help you develop apps that deliver compelling user experiences on these Motorola devices.     Three of these four new smart phones are from the successful and iconic MINGâ„¢ series designed for China. The phones combine a superior Android touchscreen experience with updated MING styling and features, and include the A1680 for China Unicom's WCDMA network, the MT810 for China Mobile's TD-SCDMA network, and the XT806 for China Telecom's CDMA-2000 network.      A1680: Iconic MING Redefined for China Unicom   A1680 brings Android together with a design that reflects the classic and elegant MING heritage. A 3.1-inch AMOLED touchscreen offers a crystal clear display and excellent touch capabilities. A1680 supports China Unicom's WCDMA network, as well as WAPI and WIFI(1) high-speed connectivity for easy access to the mobile Internet. Motorola's acclaimed intelligent handwriting recognition software has been perfected for the A1680 while a sixth-generation SoftStylusâ„¢ handwriting system easily captures your personal penmanship style. The A1680 also has a 5MP camera and GPS navigation services. You can access Motorola's application storefront SHOP4APPS on the A1680.
