Not as impressive or ground-breaking as their newly released Droid, the Motorola Crush phone has just been announced by the US phone maker.

Motorola Crush

Simplicity is a key element on this phone as it only comes with two physical buttons on its front face – a power switch and a keypad lock key. It also comes with a 2.8-inch 240x400 touchscreen, 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, 3.5mm jack, hot swappable microSD card slot (up to 16GB), EV-DO Rev. 0 connectivity, and a 950 mAh battery. Its not exactly overflowing with high-end features but quite usable in this day and age. You can check out the full press release over here.

Its price wasn’t mentioned, but its specs suggest that Motorola is targeting to the more budget-conscious spectrum of the market with the Crush. US Cellular is confirmed to be coming out with this new touchscreen phone before 2009 comes to a close with no clear indication that other carriers will be following suit.
