Guess you have never seen messengers, couriers, and people who work at warehouses who need to SCAN barcodes / RFID's, etc...

Mobilemaster, 03 Jul 2009This phone is great, but is too big!! I reccomand ya guys to choose the Sony Ericsson Satio, o... moresatio is not the only 12MP camera phone, samsung has it also...
btw, this phone is great enough,, Moto just need to add HSDPA, radio, and maybe better camera.
the best part is, this is an outdoor phone!!
this is a smart-outdoor-phone. Hope it will come to indonesia ASAP with 3G/HSDPA.
motorola has no brain! he think we are just kids!!!
this phone is like a big toy!! just look at this size and the color of keyboard! tits a shame
This phone is great, but is too big!! I reccomand ya guys to choose the Sony Ericsson Satio, or the X1 device, those are great phones! Satio is the only one 12MP smartphone, and is cool.
Man when I saw the phone I thought it's one of the primitive hand held devices from the early 1990's.
Motorola your designer really sucks! Sure enough the features are nice but man this phone looks like a bath soap soaked in pure black unadulterated oil. Yuck!
Others say that this phone is built for those people who are always outside the office. Question is who are these people? Dont they ever get into an office and stay their to do their job.
Try to look and feel the market. Dont try to do it your way, you have been losing for the longest time. Help the market get what they want.
Ppl, it's a _rugged_ phone, not a smartphone for geeks like HTC Diamonds. The phone is very nice and enough for the most tasks, but
no HSDPA, that's why I'll stay away from it. Motorola, you don't have a brain. If this phone is used by the security who walks around a wifi-covered object, that's okay. But some people also move around the city. And outside the city where is 3G but no wifi networks at all. Why don't you think about this?
Worst smartphone 2009 ever! (to date, maybe Moto will make even worse units later, as they seem to go back in time...)
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2009excelent features only the camera is a litle poorNo 3G is excellent? Also look at the resolution!!!
Does any Motorola phone have 3G? I think it's 3G that killed Moto, really!
The specifications suggest, this one is a serious application based armor plated phone for those spending more time on field than in office, and those who need the unique barcode scanner etc. It’s an evolutionary model, suggesting the phone is much more than just a device to make voice calls, browse net, click pictures, play media, and find your way (GPS).
This actually re-opens up the industrial grade build quality in cell phones. Phone like this could be held up against the bandwagon lot like, hum-V in cars / G-shock in watches / Swiss army knife.
Not sure if this product will be a big-hit in the market, but it will surely last forever with those who get to buy it.
Also it opens up a niche segment. We could have so many more things in our phones:
Temperature / humidity / air pressure sensors,
Speed radar detection
thanks Motorola for inventing a wireless telephone set for the uses of 19th century.
Anonymous, 31 May 2009Guys are you from 90s. Check out Samsung's Omnia HD!No Samsung unit can scan any barcode or RFID's like Moto's MC-series.
Don't know how many times I need to mention, this "device" is NOT intended for the mass market, indeed no consumer can likely purchase ONE unit right out of any phone shop.
So other than the GSM capability, this phone simply CANNOT be compared with any other GSM phone in the market, as the intended customers are TOTALLY DIFFERENT.
So to the rest of you, stop your non-sense comments about how this phone looks so 90's or whatever being behind others....as its barcode / RFID reading capability already being unmatch by anything else in the market.
Of course I do expect some only know how to write English but can't read...
