Rumours are abound the Internet that Motorola is about to launch a dedicated movie phone that will offer 30 frames per second and allow users to play feature length films on the go.

Although details are sketchy the phone is expected to be launched next week.

Speaking at the Software 2007 conference in Silicon Valley, Motorola Chief Executive Ed Zander briefly described one of the several devices the company said it plans to announce at an event next Tuesday.

"We are going to show a device next week", Zander told several hundred attendees of the business software conference, saying it would show 30-frames-a-second, full-motion video. "It is a media monster."

The good news is that the new device is rumoured to be available first in the UK and Europe rather than America.

Zander also said Motorola has partnered with another company that can fit feature-length movies on SD cards.

Already trialled in the UK by Carphone Warehouse, movies on SD has yet to be a success with high costs of £20 per movie blamed for the slow take up.

Pocket-lint would love to be able to tell you more, however we are currently under NDA on breaking any more information on the announcements.

We will have full details of the new handsets on Wednesday 16 May.
