According to this Infosync World article (http://www.infosyncworld.com/news/n/3588.html) Motorola's A920 UIQ 3G phone may be available as soon as June in Australia. This information is largely gathered from this 3 Australia article (http://www.three.com.au/index.cfm?section=Explore&pid=450&pageid=481&sid=8 54). Hopefully this device will be availible in other countries as well.

The specs sound awesome,its not as stylish as the p800 but i'd live with it,man,AGPS,it even has the couple of buttons and jostick/or whatever i really miss in the p800,it even comes with i 32 MB memory card and there are allready 128MB ones available but i guess that's where the price comes in,920$!!! Well,considering the features i dont think its too much,but its a lot of money! Will it work only on 3G networks?

Remember its an Austalian website so I assume its Australian dollars not US.

About 2.5 to the pound approx 400

I don't know..... it has a certain retro chic about it.

But I am impressed that it will play WMA files. I didn't think Microsoft would allow for such a thing on the evil Symbian platform.

Any info on whether its a 3G device only?

Yeah, and it's still a ugh...Motorola..

Only thing I like about it is the built-in GPS function.

And, Langdona, you did a little misspelling there, at the specs list. The screen resolution is 208x320(same as the P800(UIQ)), not 308x320.

hehe, yeah, screen res kept me wondering for a few secs :-)

And it's 65536 colors , or easier 16bpp color mode ;-)

It's interesting... we will have to wait and see :-)

It says it works with GSM 900/1800/1900 so theoretically it can drop down to 2.5g as and when required to work with the "old" operators.
