isn't this phone from about 2001/2002? or somewhere there? motorola has been left behind i see and think the first cell phone i saw was a motorola from the eighties....
2,000 USD for such an exclusive & well designed phone is nothing for people who can afford it. Motorola should charge 2,000 Euros instead...

The Aura is definately graceful.. Tested this model and it really surprised even me.. The swivel is what it claims and holding it in your palm makes you feel a few thousand dollars richer and luckier in whatever you do. It makes you wanna hold on to it wherever you go.
Had this phone tested for a few days and it did amazed the people around me especially those who are into fashion. The grip, shine and the display which certainly would put a WOW when you look at it for the first time.
To those who tried to critize this piece of art that is produce without additional fashion labels, i bet that you can't even afford a cup of Blue Mountain coffee.
It certainly has a lot of fans who don't have time to visit this site regularly as they are way too busy watching their money grow.
But it's good to see that here is where all the real hate are nurtured and especially those who claimed to have owned too many to be true.
Well, one thing left to say is 'Stop Dreaming' and 'Start Living'. You don't have to love just one. Love all, you will see that the greatest all comes in a balance.
Each brands has their own which makes them their own kings.

although today motorola had a little bit stuc... moreSorry for being out of the topic, though keep in mind when Moto released its E398...still one of best in terms of stereo speakers, actually started the "music phone" trend...when others, especially the I?music brand, had absolutely no "music phone" offering...and that very same company still refuses to offer 3.5mm plugs on their phones.
Also if you have a chance, see if you can perform a comparision test between your iriver unit vs. Moto's E8.
I still have my Moto E2, which offered the best music at its time. I briefly tested E8 and its music quality was even better than my E2!
My Nokia 6500c got 2MP camera & my 8800 Arte got 3.15MP camera, but when compare to my Motorola V9's camera (2MP only), the above mentioned Nokia phone's camera produce much worse pictures even in the day time. Those Nokia camers are almost useless at night! I do not use my phones' camera too often, only once in a while when I travel out of town for business - the phone's camera mainly use for snap shot when needed.
My V9 2MP camera, although without a flash, can take clear & bright picture in low light surroundings - SE phones are probably even better in this regard.
I use my phone mostly for business conversations & I need them to be very clear; & Motorola phones are best in this area. 8800 Arte is almost as god & louder too, but 8800 Arte do not have the function to cut surrounding noise!....so Moto V9 is still better!
As I had mentioned, I use my phone mainly for business talk; & those conversations usually last for quite a long time. There is a problem with almost all Nokia phones - they all get very hot from approx. 10mins to 15mins of continues conversations...to such a level that can ,make me feel extremely un-comfortable & wanting to drop the call immediately!
8800 Arte's camera reaction is also extremely slow!
I have the confidence with Motorola phones & I bet this high end, high quality MotoAura won't disappoint...
Wish that Motorola will produce a 3G version of this Aura, like LG with their Prada phone, so that I do not have to change my phone & hence the sim card when I travel to Japan/Korea for business!
nicolas, 23 Nov 2008motorola is bad i hate no exist, nokia and sony ericsson are the best mobile phone i am not question on the phones/brands you like
although today motorola had a little bit stuck with function
but i am a fan of moto
i can tell you all,
they made the FIRST dualband, tri-band, quad-band phone, the FIRST HSDPA phone, the FIRST flip phone and "rotate style" phone, the FIRST phone with GPRS, the FIRST phone(exclude wm phone) using mini-USB and micro-USB, the FIRST phone using Micro-SD, etc...
if i say other brands copying motorola, i probably say they are the leader
and their crystal talk for their mic is brilliant and cannot find in other brands
it made my conversation clear, and remember "mobile phones" are use to talk
if i want taking photo, i have a nikon/canon cameras
if i want listening mp3, i have a iriver CLIX
if i want mobile internet, i have my motorola, always connecting HSDPA, but when i use nokia E66, always 3G, few times HSDPA (i don't know why...)
