Motorola is to launch it's much hyped Android handset in September in an attempt to try and rekindle its momentum in the mobile phone market.

Although details are sketchy, invites have gone out to journalists in the US, asking to save the date and "get their arse to San Fran" (we made that bit up but have recently watched Total Recall).

How do we know it's about Android? The friendly little green robot makes an appearance.

Motorola has long stated that it plans to adopt the operating system from the Open Handset Alliance and Google signing up hundreds of Android engineers over the last year.

Could the new handset save the company? Moto certainly hopes so.
