So uh... what exactly is the function of the swiveling part? The phone is practically fine without it! And don't tell me it's for keypad cover, yes obviously that's why it's there, but that's bull!!!
A Mobile Developer, 24 Oct 2008Is this a late April Fools prank?
Why no 3G since moto have made other 3g capable phones? ... more"The round screen just means that the j2me apps will be rare because of the custom porting required."
Obviously you haven't looked into this phone, Java games can be played on a 320x240 rectangle inside the circle, no custom porting required.
Why don't you do a little bit of research before making such statements.
This is a fashion phone like the Nokia 8800's or Vertu, which don't do as much as other phones.
Motofan is back!!! original design since 2001, thanks moto for unique & brilliant ideas
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2008will never sell! ugliest moto...EVERits beautiful!! style man style!!
Motorola Aura: the reincarnation of the Motorola V70. And just like V70, it is destined to meet its demise, expectedly, that is.
sleek.. but 2MP camera.. totally disappointed!
plus, um, how the heck are u meant to talk on this thing..

Pple who r commenting bad about this phone would know it better. How good i... morehey naga,you said that this phone made from scratch resistance?? do you remember that razr V3 used to be made from aeroplane high aluminium?than do you also know that v3 now only us$100 and no one buy it because it can do nothing?i think this phone price also will be down much in 1-2 years.
no offense except you confused where to place your money or you are mobile phone maniac will buy this phone but i think most of us wont buy it because price not equal with the feature.
no wonder big mobile phone company can make much profit even in this global economic recession because of this kinda phone.
2000 usd for this phone...when people hardly pay 100 usd for a motorola...motorola always had crappy baterri life, and very hard menu...nothing new about this ..a upgrade from v70 :|
if you dont have anything nice to say dont say anything at all .......it looks cool
I suppose this is Motorola's competitor for the Vertu phones from Nokia? Why must so many people talk down about this phone with out mentioning Nokia makes similar products (by price), too? I like it, it's unique. If I was wealthy enough to afford a $2,000.00 USD phone with out it putting a dent in my bank account. I would buy it.
It s all the same, moto has no chance to create a phone which isn t looking ridiculous,
this phone will fail,1.5 inch diameter screen,only 2gb memory with no card slot,and only 2mp camera,i wonder who studies the markets at motorola.....
this phone is UNIQUE & ORIGINAL !!
but sadly too expensive (1500 euro).... :-(
Well, this phone is good looking and all but it's far from original, Motorola already had a phone like this (does V70 ring any bells), but they just updated to look sharper and with the common features every phone has now, Nokia, Samsung and LG also have phones with the same flipping style so it's no big deal, but not bad.
