As of late the basic design of Motorola’s high-end Android devices have been rather repetitive. The Electrify on U.S. Cellular signals a change, however, to a more rounded dare we say classy design. Besides the long in the tooth brick-ish construction of Moto’s phones is the reliance on PenTile technology for their displays. While arguments for and against the technology could be made all day long, all you really need to know is that it’s garbage. Thankfully the unannounced Motorola Spyder (see above) will usher in a new type of display that is sure please the pixel lovers out there — a 4.3″ qHD (540 x 960) Super AMOLED display.

Besides the new screen tech, the Spyder is reportedly outfitted with a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, Gorilla glass (for the display), Kevlar casing, and 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording capabilities.

Considering Samsung is the biggest user or AMOLED displays we find it a bit odd they’re not the first to market with the new, higher resolution AMOLED display. Though at the end of the day it doesn’t really matter which company outs the tech just as long as someone does.


TIMN has updated their original article with new information. According to several tipsters, the “Spyder” could very well hit the market as the “RAZR” — it’s coming back from the dead. There’s also chatter that a separate report that Engadget posted last month detailing a so-called “Droid HD” is in fact the Spyder/RAZR above. Certainly looks plausible, no?
