I think this is a brilliant phone!
This phone could be a good bang for the money if priced well. Living in an emerging country I can tell you this kind of phone is exactly what we need. We do not have 3G networks, in phone internet is still too expensive, so; why whould you focus on providing those features on a cheap phone? Sadly, most wanna-be geeks, a.k.a. fanboys (we do have them) just focus on specs without looking at what makes a product worth, its avility to satisfy most of your needs. They key pad design is just great, I'd just want to have excellent sound quality, if it has it; I'll be on line to pick up this phone.
Well i hate my K3 it restarts often then. My mom warned me about moto is not durable. I guess i had the wrong decision in buying K3. It restarts it can't handle viruses (files with) but my W200 (SE) does not restart eventhough i install applications with viruses. WELL SE IS SOOO DURABLE that's why they don't put it on SALE here in the phil. i can see many people using SE phones.
syndrela, 10 Aug 2008is moto became fool to launch such type of model which has up to 8 GB memory but dont have 3G ... moreIf you're Moto's management and given:
1)2/3 of your customers (mainly US and mainland China) do not have 3G
2)The rest of x number of customers from developing countries...(those who supported Moto to sustain its no.3 spot in terms of sales volume) also do not have 3G.
What would you do? Put 3G in these phones so to make these phones more expensive with less people can utilize the functions?
Don't get me wrong, I love Moto's 3G phones and I've owned almost every single one of them, and also wait for the next ones.
What a descusting phone. Motorola you need to improve or your going to go backcrupt.

Come on, SE Fanboy. Look SE Condition now, SE has strugle more than half year and will continue and the profit falling down pretty fast. Facing off the fact what happen with SE for now.
is moto became fool to launch such type of model which has up to 8 GB memory but dont have 3G & wi-fi... why are you making people fool... u bloody .... ????
those who have qualms with motorola better shut their mouth... the rokr em30 is a cheaper version of the e8... it is intended for the mass market... i cant believe something so simple as that becomes so much complicated because of nonsense blabbering... nuff said...
pls GSMArena, can you make a review on this phone??? and also for ROKR E8?
does this phone has the same keypad features as ROKR E8? but what happened to the resolution???
but is it cheaper than ROKR E8?
I don't get it.Why motorola EM25 has overal 7.6 and EM30 overal 6.5? EM30 is way better
for the fact that motorola developes models that are reachable for medium class people it s really a step high for motorola but again motorola is making boring steps in developing thier phones fetures. I hope that they will come to wider displays, with new concepts, high level features and dont forget the megapixel cuz im counting on it, it must be beyond what is!!! be enlightened cuz buyers nowadays are so picky that those who log gets the last place. Hellomoto !!! wake up!
i fail to understand just how someone can call a phone ugly without having even held it and besides beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder imo...and yea this is indeed the miniature version of the E8 and in India you can expect this around Rs.8000...

Don't use old data. The fact is Motorola now still the 3 ranking in the global phone market ( http://www.reuters.com/article...390020080731 ). From Q1,2008 until now; Sony Ericsson is in dangerous place and struggling mobile phone joint venture. Look Sony Ericsson has falling profit pretty fast.
Every brand has class. Low End, Middle End and High End. Motorola EM30 for Low End User. For Low End User; the most important is cheap price, can call and can messaging.
