i was once moto-user, n i loved my V70 although its feature is not up to my expectation (at that time)
Love this phone, but dont think it;s worth $2k.
the rebirth of extremely beautiful v70. pity the price is sky high. samsung armani n lg prada cost less than $1000 yet they are equipeed with touch screen. i wish moto will make a cheaper n more economical version of moto aura.
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2008Motorola copying Nokia 7373... Sigh... Maybe they don't have a designing department anymore. W... moreIf Moto copied 7373, didn't 7373 copied from Moto's own V70/V80? It took the almighty brand YEARS to copy such idea...
Not to mention about flip phones...when Moto was making 5200...the almighty brand took YEARS to copy and made the 7200...with the supersize mon!
First of all: Why do u call a person shameless for commenting a cellphone, that's very uncool of u, don't be disrespectful, not a way of democracy dude.
Second: I do think motorola produced this model to save their economics, they haven't really been successfdul with their phones lately, sure hope they'll strike back!
Very nice job by Motorola, shame thou (speaking of price)
I am a Moto guy from way back! (loved my Ultra-Classic with the BIG NiCd battery!) Why all the fuss over which phone is better all the time? Can't we all just get along? I am not a Nokia fan, but I think some of their phones are the bomb! To each his own. I sell phones for a living (dying?) and I am the antithesis of the average user...I don'r care about a camera..or internet..or silly kid games. I want to make phone calls with my phone! If I had the dough...I would be all over that phone! Quality cost money...and that Aura phone is not your average camera with a phone stuck to it!
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2008Motorola copying Nokia 7373... Sigh... Maybe they don't have a designing department anymore. W... moreDo you read the comments before you post your dumb comment? How many times have u Nokia crazy boys been corrected obout the swivel thing being from the old Motorola V70 and V80 back before colour screen? FYI Motorola is always ahead of time in terms of design. Your Nokia just makes a lot of features that can't work well together or multitask. I'm writting this on an S40 Nokia 6234 but when and SMS comes in I'll have to EXIT OperaMini to check the message(or it'll irritate me untill the song ends) and go back to the application and start over again, wheras my good old Motorola V360 would suspend the game/application and resume where I left and would've finished writting this ages ago because it finishes all my words for me.
what a shame things are so bad for motorola they have to go back all those years to a not very popular at the time design to try and revive their flagging brand, $2000 for a mobile is nuts and anybody who would pay that for something that will be obselete in 6 weeks is also nuts..............
Mike, 23 Oct 200816M color LCD display (maybe OLED)that is the reason for this price. The reason behind the insane price is the matterials used in the construction/manufacturing of the phone which are some precious metals and the other thing being Swiss made. It's like special Mercedes SLR (not sure about Maybach), Rolls Royces and Bentleys being made in England by special Engineers and Craftsmen just for exclusiveness and only a handfull of those being made for rich people who don't want to have something that the average Joe has. It's that plain simple. BTW thanx GSMArena for bringing that phone on the biggest phone forum.
Motorola copying Nokia 7373... Sigh... Maybe they don't have a designing department anymore. Who buys these Nokia copies anyway. For that price you can get a real Nokia and much more.
You are the shameless person. Why the hell you are comparing this phone with 7373? This is the rebirth of v70. And this phone is out in comparison for Arte series. You are gone mad to compare this with 7373. No way!
The phone does not look anything like the Nokia 7373. None of you remember the Motorola v70?
7373 is copied by this phone?! You're out of your mind! Motorola made the first phone with rotating front panel - v70, years after the v80 emerged. And 2 ago your favorite 7373 was announced. Motorola has always shown innovative design in their creations.

no its not a copy of Nokia 7373, its a rebirth of the classic Motorola V70. If its a copying thing, im sure Motorola came up with the swivel design first and not Nokia, the same thing with flip phones.
looks good , but it is a modified copy of nokia 7373
and at $2000 no one will buy it. maybe around $900 it would be alr8
zT, 23 Oct 2008I noe that Moto wants a share of Nokia's high end phone. but designing a decent look and smash... moreIf you can tell the difference between a 262K and 1600K color mon, that's fine.
Though I doubt the majority of the users, even most of us here, can really tell the difference.
If you like the almighty brand, which can take "years" to copy ideas like turn phone or 3G phones with touchscreens, that's fine and I'd suggest you to go back to your almighty brand forum.
