sagar, 07 Oct 2008oh really the GPS facility is free in India?.
where you got all these information?
Please pu... moreIn Hong Kong where I live, GPS is FREE using A1600...unlike certain almighty brand.
However, "A-GPS" would be charged by GPRS...which one of the network service providers offers US$12.5/month for unlimited usage, plus 600 basic mins.
I think the battery stand by time is poor, its only 180hrs. 930 mah battery is not sufficient i think for a touchscreen phone

Please put the link here, i want to view.
If what you are saying is true, then it will be run for the money. Because normally Gps will be charged by nokia (eg 6210 navigator).
If motorola provides it for free then many ppl will stand in queue for buying it.

Enquired about this phone at bangalore, it's priced around 10,500 Rupees & is available.
Dr. Jerry Mendez, 03 Oct 2008How is the cover? Is it durable or weakens after a while? Fragile?Don't know how durable you want the cover be, though from both my own experience with A1600 and observation / comments from previous A1200, the cover has never been cracked. (unless you really hit it by hard objects)

Anecky, 23 Sep 2008Can any one tell me where I can get the US map for MOTO a1600I want one too!
Initially I was told the maps would be available through my local Motorola website.
The phone has been around for about a month in HK now and I don't see any sign of any other map.
Then recently I was told the map would be available "once I get there"....meaning once I arrived in US, I click on the map and the system would automatically download the map into the phone.
But don't take 100% what I say...just sharing what I know so far.
After spending the $ on A1600 (and V9!), I don't have any $ left to go anywhere to try to download the map!
well recently i had a chance to experience this phone live, the phone at first looks cool, but its bit bulky at back thats coz of battery this actually got very gud battery backup as its got 930 mAh...
camera is prety gud wid 3.2mp wid flash 8X digital zoom & panorama mode wid 5 shots... its even got diffrnt modes likes normal bust mode, matrix mode & gif mode for taking pictures
Its got GPS wid AGPS mode all pre-loaded wid life time free navigation in india, wid 30 cities across india, it even covers 540,000 unqiue destination rechable across india ( eg like taj mahal in agra, tirupathi in andhra etc)it even covers 1200 cities across india ( eg hubli in karnataka, whr it covers some impt places & tourist spots in hubli)its runs wid complete turn to turn voice guided navigation, no payments reqiured, no map activation charge, reqiures no GPRS to function..... really excellent phone
apart from that its got same fucntionality as ming A1200... this phone is ecpected to hit indian market even before diwali
