Motorola showed off the Linux-based MOTORIZR Z6 and MOTOMING A1200 cell phones today. Kinda weird names for a phone of you ask me.
Both are quad-band GSM phones, while the A1200 also supports EDGE for high speed network access.

The Z6 is a slider phone that uses designs that resemble the company's hugely popular RAZR. To gain access to the phone's keyboard, you slide the screen up. The phone supports global GSM access, and includes high quality stereo sound and has a built-in music player.

It also supports Bluetooth, has a 2 megapixel camera for photos and video, and has a memory card slot for up to 2GB on a micro-SD card. The phone will support Bluetooth printing, and it features an airplane mode so that you can turn off the cell phone, but still listen to music.
