Motorola has introduced the first Google Android-OS powered smartphone in South Korea.

Meet the MOTOROI.

The Android 2.0-based MOTOROI is an impressive little handheld, featuring a 3.7-inch HD WVGA touchscreen display (480 x 854 resolution), up to 8 GB storage (plus microSD support up to 32 GB), HDMI-out, 3.5mm earphone jack, and support for T-DMB television tuning.

A real highlight on this smartphone is its camera power. The MOTOROI totes an 8-megapixel camera with Xenon flash plus 720p HD recording ability. The camera has a collection of preloaded functions, including red-eye reduction, camera shake reduction, panorama, face detection and multi-shot (6 shots in a row).

Then there's the usual Google collection of apps (Gmail, Talk, Maps, etc.), plus Microsoft and PDF document viewer and a program called "Optical Character Recognition," which scans, translates and reads business cards, then storing the information to the phonebook.

Seems like it would work well for both personal and professional uses.
