The phone runs Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread out of the box with add-on apps preinstalled like MOTOPRINT (print via Wi-Fi-enabled printers) and Adobe Flash.
The phone supports wireless charger and it will be available in Verizon Wireless Stores as well as online on September 8 for $299.99 with a new two-year contract.
