MOTOFONE
The MOTOFONE handset redefines wireless communication with high design, smart features and easy functionality at a low price. Combining Motorola's award-winning design sensibility with intuitive and easy-to-learn functionality, the MOTOFONE enables even the newest phone users to embrace mobile communication with confidence and style.

Connecting the Unconnected
Billions of people around the world have yet to make a phone call - and billions more have only just begun to explore wireless technology. The need for communication is growing and the demand for cost-effective phones keeps increasing. The MOTOFONE is designed to specifically meet the universal desire to stay connected -- with friends, family, and business associates, old and new.

Speaking Your Language
To help bridge literacy gaps, the MOTOFONE offers a redesigned user interface with innovative voice prompts in local languages* to guide the user quickly and easily through menu navigation, messaging, and other functions. In addition, graphical icons visually demonstrate the menu features as well as network status and battery strength. For pre-paid customers, the MOTOFONE automatically reports the status of their pre-paid account after each call or message*, allowing consumers to stay in control of use and expense.

Looks Good, Sounds Good, Built to Last
Surprisingly thin and easy to carry, the MOTOFONE features a revolutionary ClearVision display that leverages Electrophoretic Display (EPD) technology to provide users with a large, high-contrast screen viewable even in bright sunlight. The ClearVision display combined with a flush-fitting keypad and dust-resistant design makes the MOTOFONE durable in active everyday use. And it sounds great too - with polyphonic ringtones, speakerphone and powerful volume - communication is loud and clear.

Its the most wonderful, I have ever heard about. As informed to us, this phone is unbreakable. We have tried throwing the phone against the wall with all might. It still does not break. A person with 300 pounds weight tried to crush it. He couldnt. Moreover, signal strengths were so good in places where other mobile lose their network. All this at a price of Rs. 1655/- in India

It seems to be a good LCD mobile who are sick of colour display which goes black in stand by, so you can see time, signal strenght, and battery any time without reading glasses. Thickness is another rich feature while price will also be good for all.

Hei, it was about time someone decided to make a basic phone, although the screen is a bit too "basic". It all depends now on the price. If you sell this phone for like... 3 dollars, then it's a bargain.

Yet again most companies will probably give this phone for free along with some services. So it will preatty much depend on their policy.

The phone may become a hit in countries where people can not afford fancy 3MP camera phones.

Yes, very nice, but useless phone because of type of display. Phonebook and SMS would be torment on such displey.
Came on, Motorola, change display to matrix EPD.
