a3100 is best phone today around whit uper PROMINENCE than other phone product but its not in gsmarena ranking ????????????????
and ve66 - zn5 too
i dont like you gsm
Ooh, touchscreen. Is that scrool thingy like the one on BlackBerrys???
Wow this phone surely has risen some emotions! Nice. I hope it's as good as it looks on the pictures and videos.
I would expect someone here to again blatantly exploit this phone's weaknesses and then is pitted against an obviously uneven fight with a high-end phone.
Dro, 08 Jan 2009My only disappointment is that the screen should at least be 3", and why isn't there an FM rad... morei think it's better to maximize in one focused oriented, than you put all features on your handset, but all the feature won't work perfectly, like Nokia did, they put all feature in every their high end phone, but lets check how they works, are they works as good as specialized phone (office phones, camera phones, or music phones for example).
So I think, it would be no problem if there is no radio on A3100.
how can people post comments here about something that is due for release yet? i wonder why? please enlighten me... thanks

I would really appreciate your input on Crystaltalk Version 2. Didn't know the EM35 has the 2nd version. If the version two has better background noise reduction feature, I'll be very interested to look into as my next upgrade.
Yes I do celebrate CNY, will have more time then to teach the other little "kid" here on growing up and put English to good use. (LOL)

Unfortunately recent comments on low end phones like VE538, or perhaps even Zn200 (not sure if this being OEM), isn't exactly positive.
To cope with the possible lost of my US$10 betting on the availability of Crystal Talk on A3100, I'll bet another US$20 on GSM Arena "not" to review A3100...that actually means I wouldn't mind to pay US$20 if GSM Arena would ever review any Moto phone again!
Thanks for your greeting, and same to you...if you do celebrate CNY. I shall be able to share some experience with my EM35 next week (Crystal Talk 2)...as I plan to put a 16GB card in the phone.
A good friend of mine, who I influcence to become a Moto user. I often call him to "test" the phone before I make the purchase, and he often gives me feedback in terms of voice quality of different Moto form factors with Crystal Talk. Of course, based on the design, any flip phone with Crystal Talk offers the best. Will have him to help test the quality of EM35.

Anonymous, 09 Jan 2009Hey people! why does motorola germany not bring phones like the em30,and now i read the em35 ... moreI'm sharing the same concern like yours in Motorola products availability in my country too. I've found out just recently that after February this year, Sony Ericcson, Nokia and Motorola will be moving out of my country, I mean their local country branch offices, leaving only importing distributors and service centres here which were appointed and does not belong to them. So there'll still be support after sales, just that without their branch office, the models coming in will be reduced depending on the models selected now from their distributors' decision, not from the respective manufacturer this time. The way I see it, this is a cost cutting step taken by these manufacturers (SE, Nokia, Moto) to reduce global expenditures when facing the on coming hard times. As for your country, I'm not completely sure on the scenario, maybe it's different so you might need to check out further. During this economic crisis, I believe the market for "cheaper" phones are more attractive to buyers in general so more people will be looking for value buy, lower price for higher specs phone. So my concern is, some bogus "companies" might come out with imitations to attract people and make some quick bucks. I've actually seen some imitated models in my country selling for very attractive prices. Just a thought from me, be careful guys.
100 Moto, 09 Jan 2009I mostly like black / silver color phones over others, even though I actually like blue color ... moreTo me, the most important feature in Motorola phones today is Crystaltalk so if Moto decides to leave it out for A3100, there must for a reason. Well, without Crystaltalk, the competition level is the same with others, with Crystaltalk, Moto is actually one level up from others. If it's true that A3100 is an OEM product then it's not surprising that it'll come without Crystaltalk and if it's OEM from Taiwan, there's a possibility this model is "made" by one of the giant PDA phone manufacturer there, just like O2 Zinc model, which was made by ASUS in Taiwan and the earlier O2 models were from HTC those day. I'm not surprised if Moto chose this direction for cost cutting measure as many well branded US products are manufactured either in Taiwan or China nowadays, in fact many of the US products that my company are importing from, we shipped them out from China or Taiwan. Contrary to many believe, Quality can be good or even extremely good depending on the product grade vs. price that we are willing to pay or can be also poor quality if price agreed is low. Let's hope A3100 is the higher grade. Based on current global situation, many companies are merging and OEM products should be more common for cost reduction, avoiding high inventory and tooling costs.
Once you've got your A3100, hope you could share with all of us on the performance. Thanks and Happy New Year (CNY) to you and your family.
why does motorola germany not bring phones like the em30,and now i read the em35 probably also not,to germany,when they bring phones like the aura?!?i mean who will buy these super expensive phones in times of a economical crisis and to a country where "greed is cool"is an important saying?they should instead bring phones for the masses!be more competitive in segments where they could sell more phones,like the music centric segment!
everybody says how bad motorola is doing,but they are doing one big mistake after the other!i thnk that motorola germany is incompetent in their job by bringing the wrong phones to their country!and why are there no motorola phones in the big electronic stores(saturn,media markt) where everybody is buying electronical devices?!?
if somebody from motorola could read this,and do something against it...
Stuart, 08 Jan 2009Yeah, red color is not for me too. For me, my phone is a tool for business so perception is im... moreI mostly like black / silver color phones over others, even though I actually like blue color myself, somehow if I can choose between black and blue on a phone (like Moto V3x/Z3), I still take the black one.
Anyway, went to my favorite chain last nite and put a deposit on EM35, which does have one copy (but I would like a new-new one!). Just hope Moto will "not" come out another color for EM35 for me to "swtich".
Back to A3100, the bad news is my US$10 with Crystal Talk "might" be in vain....because other sources indicated A3100 is an OEM product from a Taiwanese company. The Crystal Talk feature is still not confirmed yet.
The other bad news is, after reading a review in Chinese (as Moto Taiwan held a press conference for A3100 yesterday), no word was mentioned about the availability of radio.
So I still keep my figures crossed on 2 of my favorite features on A3100: Crystal Talk and radio. Though I'll still likely buy this phone afterall.
The suggested retail price is NT$15900, and under the current exchange rate, that means around US$500! Hope by the time A3100 reaches HK, price will be around US$400, which is my bottom line for any phone.
Around the same time last year, I paid around US$400 for my Q9h (after some US$120 rebate from operator). As my contract will end soon, I might get another good deal from the operator.
The good news is A3100 shall be available in Taiwan in about a week or 2.
BArt if it has a wifi and speed connections u can log on every internet radio u need. But yeah i guess ther's no FM on it
By the way ... GSMarena - dont forget that this handset has a LED flashlight at the top and 3,2Mpx camera also with LED flash - and its really important!!!
can some one tell me does this phone has FM RADIO , it will be biiiiig downfall if there is no fm receiver , thank you and sorry for bad english :)
