From the companies stand point they have captured a major segment of the market with
Yes the point is to make profit and that is thanks to good marketing not good products.
50 million sold, so what, guess you think cocaine is also a great product also cause its profits are in the billions per year...
This phone's beauty cannot be captured in photograph. You have to see it to believe it. The reflective surface is glassy and the phone do not at all look like the RAZR. It has got a very high resolution screen and the Motorola UI has been completely revamped. This phone is a joy just to behold!
Hey listen people
It doesnt matter that you guys are bored by motorolas v3 design , What matters is that motorola has sold more than 50 million of these phone and is making more money than any other poor manufacturer .
That matters .
Just as Vijay indicated,
Moto fans are impressed by shiny and reflective (ft rich, no way) phones.
The "perfect" market segment
omg!!! not again~~ moto only knows know to produce v3-style phones??? look at those 4 new phones, just a cracked copy from v3 design. really feel shame bout it. moto is paying high salary for low quality phone desingers. come on, sack all those designer la! bring out some revolutional stuffs if u wan others to support.
i like the v3, so i like the ki, but i m not seeing a biggest difference but the camera, i like the style,is a nice cell, who knows i buy one for me, if i get some money enough....talking about it, how much it costs?
Moto is milking the v3 cow too long now,
this is just a shiny v3 with mediocire fts (polyphonic tones), yes this phone will sell like cocaine to all the mindless "bling-bling" fans...
the resolution of the display is too low. only 65k TFT! c'mon!
it should be 256k TFT like all the other phones.
these are really g8 razrs to cut the other mobile's throats.
feature rich and reflective surface is exciting.
Look at SE & Nokia ,every phone have full of features but look Motorola ,nothing !!
2 megapixel camera with 20 MB memory !!!?
Seems motorola thinks just about money !!
No 3G,No WLAN,No HSCSD,No Infrared port,65K colors !!!!
shame Motorola !!
On the display:
Well we MIGHT hope that the change from 256K colours to 65K is actually a change to a display that works all year... I use my v3 in the winter only, due to the HOPELESSLY bad display, complettely useless in direct sunshine.
Maybe they learned from Nokia and Samsung that there are people trying to use the phone also in the summer...
On yet another v3 clone:
Well it is 11mm less wide! (On the cost of 2mm in thickness and 5mm in length)
So by this its more a clone of Samsung E870
moto's supposed to release phones with tft screen 256k colors.. and it's 65k.. well... seems like they're going back in time =P
Oooh a new Motorola V3i variant with a clever vowel-deficiant title. OR CLVR in their own words. Who wants to bet they bring it out in a range of new and exiting colours 6 months down the line.
it just looks like an almost carbon copy of the V3i. Unless it's priced quite low I can't see it shifting much.
Why did they keep the same low-res screen resolution as every phone they've released since the V600?? It should be at least QVGA.
