a1200 have better desin but a1600desin is not very good a1200 & a1600 have 90percent similar function !! so why a1600 is very expensiver than a1200 ???? the price of a1200 is about 210 us$ but a1600 with low desing & more than 90percent similar function with a1200 and no 3G & wi-fi is about 460 us $ ??? why ? why ?? it is a negetive rank for motorola company ??
Yes this has the same functions as its previous version the A1200. Only good thing is that it reads the sms back to you in a robot voice. Other than that once again a crap phone from Motorola. A question really..why does Motorola build boring phones? Hello? The V3 design is so prehistoric. Why incorporate it in all their models?
vaio, 25 Aug 2008i'm sure this type is priority for china market thats why no 3G because in china the goverment... moreOne of the reasons for Moto to focus on 2G phones is the fact, People's Republic of China, is developing its own TD-SCDMA 3G system, which is quite different from the rest of the world.
Some sources indicated the government even purposely delays the release of WCDMA 3G license to other operators in PRC, so to ensure its own TD-SCDMA system is protected.
If 1/3 of your customers are willing to pay such "premium" for phones, especially for such compact touch screen device where N & SE can only dream of making, why not charge more?
my name is sboyyo, 25 Aug 2008I hate this phone. its rubbish, this phone makes me sick to my stomach. Thje camera is poor an... moreIf you hate this phone so much, why did you get one in the first place? Or are you making comments without owning one?
I hate this phone. its rubbish, this phone makes me sick to my stomach. Thje camera is poor and production quality is what i would from motorola. anyone who has this phone needs some serious therapy!!!
hugs and kisses
i'm sure this type is priority for china market thats why no 3G because in china the goverment still talks about the 3g regulation thats explain about the chinese handwriting in the picture.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970This phone costs around USD$383 in Hong Kong as handset only. No contract.
Looks like a moto accomply of the late nineties......remember?
I prefer the A810, at least is simple, and more modern than this....
Playing around with both of these models, the A1600 has a much better camera than the A1800.
Anonymous, 06 Aug 2008whats the diference between this and the a1800?A1800 also supports CDMA, which A1600 doesn't. (and one has to pay near US$200 for that!)
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2008Might just be a faulty battery cover. It happend on the PEBL. My mother-in-law's W375 is the ONLY Moto phone I've experienced with faulty battery cover so far, which even Moto itself admitted the problem.
