How did it become outdated? 3G,2 Megapixel snapper, bluetooth,micro SD. What? It's a middle range phone for God sakes. It does in fact look good. You people just hate Motorola. Oh I just hate fanboys like you people. Be reasonable. It's not that bad. Have you even had one of these "fugly,outdated" phones before? No? Then shut up. I've had Motorola phones before and they aren't that bad. You fanboys are just clouded. You say a phone is ugly,bad materials,bad features like the Motosurf or something when it does in face look good. Why don't you just shut up. If you hate Motorola then why the hell did you even read the post? To criticize? Oh, leave it to the professionals. You're just amateurs. Nokia is wayy worse. Cheap plastic,basic features,bar-ish design. Oh, just F:-) it!
From the keypad design, looks like the slide version of VE538, which is an OEM product which originally cost around US$177.
I just hope quality has improved somewhat since VE538, which lost the most important aspect of Moto...or a phone being a phone...Crystal Talk.
Looks nice. Doesn't matter if it's outdated, still has everything I might need. Besides, people who buy Motorolas usually have them for a couple of years before they reluctantly change the phone...
poor poor motorola...no wonder ur new fones dont sell in the Pakistan cellfone market sector...
Well, let's help out Moto and suggest the launch date: Jan 1, 1998
Black, yellow, red, green, blue, magenta! it's still the ugliest, most outdated phone ever produced by the dying Moto! goodbye, moto! (or like someone, somewhere else wrote: MoForola, lol!!)
