Motorola’s Droid, the successful smartphone family which put Android on the map, this year enters its third-generation incarnation with the anticipated Droid 3. Surprisingly, Motorola Mobility chose to launch the handset in China under the Milestone 3 moniker, which is a non-US name for the Droid.

Motorola Mobility is in the middle of a website redesign that might have inadvertently (or intentionally) leaked five new Android devices. PocketNow discovered images and references to a Dick Tracy watchphone that looks like an Android-powered remote watch Sony Ericsson was working on, later released as the LiveView. Website graphics refers to a Motorola watchphone as the Tracy XL. The tagline pitches it as a gizmo “Dick Tracy never saw coming”. The device apparently sports a front-facing eight-megapixel camera that captures full HD video in 1080p.

The remaining leaks include a second-generation Xoom, a phone called Pearl and two really hot-looking slim handsets code-named Slimline and Zaha. The fact that the images have been removed “at the request of Motorola Mobility, Inc.” (but not before AndroidCommunity got a chance to re-post them) is usually a tell-tale indication of the leaks being the real deal. Check out the phone hotness and two more images below the fold.
