Details surfaced this week that tell us the top cover provides a capacitive layer for touch whereas the screen itself offers resistive technology. The rationale behind it is simple.

According to a Chinese tech site called IT168, this phone is called the Motorola MT810 "North Sea" and is headed for China. The phone is said to feature a 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video capture. Other details include TD-SCDMA network and WAPI support. Although the 3D features have not been clarified or confirmed, sites like Engadget are still holding on to the idea that it exists.
