Thanks for your explanation. I have more than 10 WM device, just wonder why this stuff can outsmart device such as the sony X1 or htc diamond etc.,
Just for curiosity sake!!
Cheers anyway and have a nice weekend
sammy, 27 Feb 2009just cannot understand why is the rating of this stuff so high 8.8??? Please tell my why?sammy,
The "rating" on this phone or any other phone models and brands are really subjective from my opinion. Be it Motorola, Nokia, SE, Samsung and others, the same person can visit and re-vote again and again even the number of Hits you see here could be misleading. Know what? I've been visiting gsmarena on my bookmarked phone model sites at the average of once every 2 days for the last 1 year, I've never put my vote on any phone models at all. Another personal experience I can share with you is that I rarely put 100% trust on website reviews anymore these days. I bought a Motorola H12 bluetooth headset AFTER reading so many mixed website reviews, some said it's a good unit and some said not. I realised some websites are actually copying the reviews from other websites. CNET actually said the H12 didn't perform as expected but I went against the reviews and bought it after testing out the actual unit physically at the shop. Until today, I'm really happy with its performance so I concluded that I'll probably accept a 30 or 40% trust on website reviews from now on and I'll just take them as a guide. I've read many product buyers actually blamed some websites for putting up a good review on something they bought and they bought them based on these positive reviews.
So for me, a 7.0, 8.0 or even 8.9 votes does not really matter, the voting result only showed that "generally" many are favorable towards a product. If you're really interested on this model, I suggest that you check it out at the phone shops, feel it, hold it, press some buttons, if they allow, put in your sim card (if applicable) to test the voice quality and volume. By then you should be able to make your own decision.
I'm just trying to be fair and realistic about this issue even though I'm a Moto fan.
are you fidgety for 8.9 vote for this phone !
this is first tuchscreen winmobile from moto after several years whit realy good design(the elegance design not VISIBILITY from picture in this site),features,performance and very good material like every moto phone ,
and every moto lover from all world waiting for thus pda phone and very soon come another model from moto that are even very beter than a3100
just cannot understand why is the rating of this stuff so high 8.8??? Please tell my why?
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2009may i know does this phone has a 'copy/cut and paste' function like the E680i? From my experience with Windows Mobile version 2002, 2003 SE, WM 5, WM 6, they all have Cut, Copy & Paste features. Just like a PC running on Windows, you can type out a sentence, highlight the full sentence to perform cut, copy or paste. You can also cut, copy or paste a file or folder from your PDA phone unit to its memory card. To me, a phone with PDA function, handwriting recognition with stylus and running on Windows Mobile OS is a good combination.

Or did you mean files or something else? It should work like other Windows Mobile devices.

Anonymous, 24 Feb 2009I just checked the price on this.. almost $420 USD and A1600 for $270 USD.. I used to have A12... moreMind to share with us what Windows Mobile / PDA phone you would get for:
as of Feb 2009?
I just checked the price on this.. almost $420 USD and A1600 for $270 USD.. I used to have A1200 before so I looked these phone over, but the price kills.. You can get so many other options for $400-$450 range phones.. This phone should be more like $250-$300 range, and A1600 for $180-$200..
new motorola phone :
HAHAHAHAHAHA Kodak is not going to save the fact that motorola are going to hit this credit crunch harder than fat man falling off the empire state building!!! Really Motorola need to escape that crocked software there running and then bring a phone that does not look like a fossel or some kind shinney terd!! Kodak are not known for good len's, sony, cannon, carls zeiss, and even the SLR range of pixon. come on keep things up to date guys your miles behind.
I SUGGEST WE ALL REQUEST MOTO TO RELEASE THIS PHONE IN EUROPE&USA!!!. I have contacted them and they said it will be available in Europe "at the earliest" in Q3. I think that if it has 136000 hits here in gsmarena and they receive more than 10000 emails , they will gladly release it in Europe or Usa earlier.
depmod, 23 Feb 2009You are right. I've been posting things in the motorola's forum but everyone has used to ignor... moreIn the past 20 years or so, I have noticed the Americans get more variety of cars (from Japan) than ever before, while the (Japanese) cars available in HK have shrinked....
Though the mobile phone market is another story, for such tiny place which requires additional software (to support 2 kinds of Chinese characters), different phone makers probably offer more than 90% of their (GSM) models in HK. Meanwhile, relatively speaking, US mobile phone market is rather boring with only a few (less than 10?) models from each company.
Can someone help me to understand how it works?
this phone has a ugly design,what is motorola doing?arnt thay gona make the z12 kick slider, with wifi 5mp cam fm radio.
Motorola still make the best phones for calls...but without gadget that kids love.
motorola used to be known as a phone industry leader, but because the razor could only do they some good there on a sinking ship, nokia, SE, and Samsung are dominating the market, But all said with that Apple's next Phone will probably revolutionize the way we use cell phones period
