Motorola has announced the upcoming availability of Motorola Charm, a touch-screen smartphone with Android 2.1, MotoBlur enhancements, a compact design and a BackTrack feature that makes screen navigation more intuitive. Charm is expected to be available this summer exclusively in the United States for customers of T-Mobile USA.

Charm provides consumers all the features of a smartphone with the intuitive navigation of a 2.8 inch touch screen – all in a compact, pocketable design. The BackTrack navigation pad, located on the back of the smartphone directly behind the home screen, is similar to a laptop touch panel and enables an unobstructed view of the Web, texts, e-mails and news feeds.

Motorola Charm will be the first device in the U.S. to feature an enhanced version of MotoBlur built on Android 2.1, which syncs contacts, posts, messages, photos and more in streams from sources such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Gmail, work and personal e-mail.
