I don't understand this:[edit]

MING is an appropriate name for this Linux-based smartphone...

Why is this? Could someone add some context? Tmorrisey 01:08, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Well, my guess is that it's a reference to the British slang usage of 'ming' -'Maebmij 03:17, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Motorola A1200 has been launched in other parts of the world. In Latin American countries, eg Brazil and Colombia, the A1200i (note the i) is known as MOTOTASK. --CesarCardoso 20:55, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

I think "MING is an appropriate name for this Linux-based smartphone" was a reference to the Chinese translation of it meaning "bright". It sounded spammy, or at the very least a subjective opinion that has no place in an encyclopedia, so I removed it. Ttrygve 15:24, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

I have a A1200,In chinese, MING mean “明” (bright),but no citation say that MING mean “Linux-based smartphone”.--ZH Evers 17:03, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Ming series - not just a single device[edit]

I'm not sure how to integrate this - if at all, so I'll leave it here, perhaps someone can make it useful?

According to this page: http://developer.motorola.com/products/a1680/ ("The first in the Motorola Ming series with Android™...") the MING is a whole series of phones, all with a similar look (clamshell with transparent cover). Unfortunately the Motorola site has no listing of the involved models, but I am certain (without definite sources, through searching for a phone) that the Motorola Krave is a successor of the Ming phone/series. See also: xt806 and a1260 (replace a1680 in previous link with these). Surely there are more.

Perhaps this site should be converted or at least include a list of phones in that series - if it really is a series? --Cyberman TM (talk) 14:32, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
