Look, first of all. Motorola are coming out with some great phones. The mpx100 and mpx220 are almost identical in features, cept one is candy bar and the other a clam shell. Those two are smartphones and so far, looks great. Even come with a superb 1.3 mega pixel camera, with flash.
The mpx is superb, it's running windows mobile 2003 SE, is a pocket pc phone edition and it will play mp3s, wmas, wmv, etc. And it does have an infrared port. No idea why it says no in the specifications here.
It's heavy, I'll give you that, but it's just 24 grams more than the Sony Ericsson p900, so stop complaining. It's the size of a pack of cigarettes. And it's small for a pocket pc. It'll have all the functionality of a pocket pc in a smartphone size. So there you go, way better than a smartphone, way better than anyphone.
And for those of you dissin microsoft, give them some time. The windows mobile and smartphone operating systems are going to win in the long run, kiss symbian goodbye. Microsoft is the future in the smartphone/pocket pc market.
This will get a LOT of press coervarge and has a bit of a chance of dethroning the Treo as the "IT" smart phone.
Very clever keyboard design!! I hope it is also robust and durable.
I suppose that you can talk on the phone through and ear bud, while typeing ont he keaybord.. A must have feature for today's harried mobile worker.
I think there will be a great competition bitween this phone and the new "p1000" of sony ericsson which is not yet announced. I'll buy the winner.
for the picture galery goto:
To those who are still criticising MOTO, please bare in mind the leader in hand phones 10 years ago.... you amatures. And do you know who owns the satelite phone company now?
Why are they making is it so heavy? And isn't the 64K color a little out dated? Motorola should not put all the latest tech. in and still leave some behind. Maybe there is going to be a model which is lighter and packed with the features left out on this one.....sigh
when the hell are all these megapixel phones coming in the market its like i have been waiting for years i cant wait any longer
How do i figure out what phone provider this phone is compatable with.
