T-Mobile let it slip through its Twitter account Wednesday that the Motorola Charm will be available beginning Wednesday, August 25. The carrier also announced on its Facebook page that the Android device will carry a price tag of $74.99 with a contract.

If you're not familiar with Charm it sports a quirky rectangular design in "golden bronze." The 2.8-inch capacitive touch-screen is smaller than we'd like, though it has a full QWERTY keyboard.

The handset runs Android 2.1 and MotoBlur while offering a 3-megapixel camera with Kodak Perfect Touch technology, voice dialing, Bluetooth, a personal organizer, a full HTML Web browser with Flash Lite support, Wi-Fi, GOS, a media player, CrystalTalk Plus technology for enhanced audio, and the full range of Android options.

T-Mobile has the full details on its Web site, but we'll get a full review as soon as can. For now, it offers a good range of features for the price even if the design doesn't stand out.
