Juicy Motorola Citrus goes on sale tomorrow

Motorola’s latest Android device for Verizon is surprisingly not something with the word “Droid” in it. It’s the Citrus, a 3-inch, low-end Android device to complement Motorola’s growing high-end offering.

This entry-level phone has a full Qwerty keyboard, a 3-megapixel camera, and a microSD card slot. It comes with a skimpy 100 MB of built-in memory. Additionally, it’s just an Android 2.1 device even though many Motorola products already have Android 2.2.

Despite the fact that it’s much less feature-rich than other Motorola products, it’s not that much less expensive. To get it, customers will need to plop down $150 when they walk into a Verizon store and sign a new two-year contract. They will, however, also get a $100 mail-in rebate.

However, that still seems kind of expensive for a phone that has much less than other Motorola Android phones. The amazing Droid 2, for example, is only $180 after rebate.

Motorola is also touting the Citrus as an eco-friendly device. It uses 25% post-consumer recycled plastic. So maybe it’s something to attract the die-hard conservationalists out there.

Honestly, perhaps Motorola should stick to the high-end Android devices. It’s hard to believe anyone would be willing to pay $150 up-front for a device with only 100 MB of storage and an old version of Android.
