Motorola's Ming PDA Smartphone

Ming Motorola

A Techie Diva reader points us to Motorola's "Ming" PDA Smart Phone which made an appearance at CTIA this year, and somehow we managed to miss it. Available only in Hong Kong, this Linux-powered PDA sports a translucent cover that holds a very thin double-sided speaker. This clam shell features  a music player, Bluetooth, FM radio and a 2 megapixel camera. But why call it Ming? The press release explains that the "Ming means bright, clear, overt or open, clear-sighted and to understand."  The touch-screen beauty also has business card reader to easily store information in a snap.

    I just saw an “unlocked” Ming and i live in Canada. So no doubt, it will work in the US it will just have to be unlocked for about 50bucks so it can workon your network.

    Do you know if bought the Ming would work in the US? I am very close to purchasing one, but the hefty price scares me. I’d like to know if it will ever be released in US and if not will all the features work here?
