This device looks great, and has great features..
I can't wait to buy one...
I always accept the fact that with billions of people in this world, there will be some with different education backgrounds and levels BUT they should not be discouraged from posting their comments here. Right people? Inaccurate spellings or grammar are not as bad as compared to some with perfect English but manipulated people's thinking with it. "We don't need to be offensive in order to reach our objective".
I'm sure Motorola, like Sony Ericcson, Nokia or Samsung is trying to produce a competitive product. For some people, A3100 is not good enough but for others, they'll buy it. There's no need to condemn people's choice or their educational background here.
at last! some goodlooking phone from motorola.. and with wifi!hahahaha
Powerful Features with absolutely best design. Looks like i'll cancel to buy X'peria, and wait for MOTO A3100
this phone is realy perfect and complete
and very beter frome xperya,apple,omnia,...
motorola a3100 come to kill apple 3g & xperia & omnia &...
its realy powerfull whit best design features and performance
Will look at the price first before buying this phone. If the price lower than Xperia, Omnia and TouchPro, then it will be a must buy.... =D
No Radio? No problem, I have my ROKR E6 and W362 for such feature.
Look awesome, will surely get one when it releases. Hope moto doesn't drag the release date too long...
My only disappointment is that the screen should at least be 3", and why isn't there an FM radio? I mean, it's not a big deal but as a fan of Motorola from day one I would like to see them bring a phone with everything. Don't come with extra features and omit the little ones which some people find as necessities. Nice design though. If its one thing Motorola always had going for it was good build quality and design. Ok!! they played out the razr design, but Motorola is an innovator. They set the trend, and others follow. I know some of you are going to say the student becomes better than the teacher, but in this case its all about bad management on moto's behalf. Can't wait to see the Android phone. Hoping it's the flash or calgary. Again spectacular designs.

For me, my phone is a tool for business so perception is important therefore I guess color for me is mostly black, dark blue & greyish. Ha, ha, sometimes I wonder what kind of non-PDA phone I can select to buy when my preferences are narrowed down to such specs - Crystaltalk, Linux OS, bar or slide design, must be the abovementioned color. I'm probably getting more fussy as I got older (LOL).
Someone mentioned that this phone is meant for 2007 and I won't disagree AND agrees with him either. I believe it's all how we all perceive the design, the specs and the performance. Looking at the specs alone, they certainly look like my ASUS when launched in 2007 BUT the track pad, the fingerprint recognition and the 10x optical zoom are all NEVER available in 2007. (based on another earlier post's info). Maybe some people's expectations are way too high, if that's the case, many other PDA phones like HTCs, Toshiba, even HP are still embracing 2007's technology in their devices. Many years ago, I was very impressed with Motorola's MPx 300, the first Windows based phone I've seen with multiple flip angles and I thought that was innovative. Actually I still like the design until today. I was using O2 XDA IIs at that time with bigger screen which I preferred. I was wondering what if A3100's specs were to fit into a MPx300's improved body? To me, it'll be awesome.
I really hope this one comes with Crystaltalk and it'll be the first again in PDA phone industry. Again, let's hope gsmarena conduct a review on this model.

As you asked whether or not A3100 would have Crystal Talk, I tried to search for Moto's websites (HK & US) regarding my own Q9h, call me naive, I can't find anything about the availability of Crystal Talk.
Though I do recall about having Crystal Talk in my own manual, plus for Q11 & Q8, the Moto China's website stated they both have Crystal Talk.
So I'd bet US$10 A3100 should have Crystal Talk. The only 3G Moto phone being released after K3 without Crystal Talk should be the shameful VE538, which isn't made by Moto anyway. (heard being OEM by BenQ)
Out of the topic, EM35 just released in HK last nite, one chain is selling for US$241 with Bluetooth H375 free of charge. Only concern I've is I don't like red...
man Linux not work in Canada because Advance Call ID
Windows Mobile is top ... because you can install any GPS software .. like Tomtom .. Igo 8 or Garmin XT
will be iphone killer this machin
i have used motorola e6 rokr and it was really awsome and i m still having it as a secondary mobile . now i m having nokia 5320 and really motorokr e6's sound quality is a bit low volumed and 5320 is having loud but noisy . i think motorola is the best company but not known by many people but still i love motorokr and i dont want to sell it and have it till my last breath coz i have done alot of experiments on it and i started windows 3.1 on it really i promise . now my next phone will be this
it's simply WONDERFUL to see that ppl realize that this phone is GREAT!
I'm surprised but happy that Motorola managed to come up with another Windows Mobile OS PDA phone. I like PDA phone, I'm using ASUS P735 PDA phone now running with Windows Mobile 6.0 Pro, specs - 520Mhz turbo processor, 256 ROM, 65K 240x320 screen, 3G (not important to me, never used it), GPS and Wifi. Because I'm a heavy phone user, I make & receive calls with my ROKR E8, keeping my ASUS for organizing work, email, GPS, reminders, taking notes and to do list. I might not change to this model as the specs between my ASUS and this model are very close but I would say this is a good effort from Moto, the only thing to observe now is the price of this model. Since all the latest Moto models come with Crystaltalk technology, I wonder whether this model has it as I didn't see it stated in the specification section. If Crystaltalk is available, this will be the ONLY Windows mobile PDA phone in the world that has background noise reduction and automatic voice amplification capabilities just like Moto's V8, V9, U9, E8 and other latest Motorola models but built in a PDA phone.
About Windows Mobile OS phones with touchscreen (PDA phone), if a person is used to its OS and knows how to make full use of its true capabilities, it is very hard to go back to normal conventional phone. If I'm given only one choice to choose between a normal phone like say Motorola V9, SE 902 or Nokia N78 and a Windows Mobile PDA phone, I'll go for the PDA phone for sure. I'm practically using my PDA phone now for business purpose only, its phone usage is approx. less than 1% as I use my E8 strictly for communication, I like the Crystaltalk in my Moto E8 - for the listening comfort of my clients, family members & friends. For my PDA phone, I'm using it to read worldwide news between breaks(Avantgo channels free daily update via Wifi), emails, taking notes (paperless), even storing manual drawing illustrations with its touchscreen free hand drawing, free GPS for life unlike Nokia's and editing Powerpoint presentation on the go for fine tuning before actual presentation without my notebook. I also like the hand writing recognition, for me it is faster to write than pressing key buttons on a phone. (Maybe I'm so used to it)
So I would fully recommend this model for those who wants to enhance their daily productivity & improve overall performance in their career, it is a fantastic tool.
