there is a second generation of the motorola mpx in spring 2005 with 64MB RAM instead of the 32MB RAM in the current version so the new one will be twice as fast hopefully there will be other improvements like the colour screen
A few words of caution on the Sidekick... it has a few games you can download, but it's NOT anything like a Gameboy nor does it pretend to be. Also the OS is Sidekick specific and can't be tweaked by a typical user. It allows viewing of MS Word documents and pdf file, jpegs, but no movies, Excel, or other stuff. It's mainly a way of send/receiving (communicating) mail, surfing the web. It will Outlook sync... sort of, but again it's not a Windows OS by any means. The Sidekick camera is rather weak, but usable. Again, I believe the Moto MPx will be a quantum leap over the Sidekick... we'll soon find out.
also the sidkick 2 looks like it will be cool for gaming with the directional pad and the gba look plus the qwerty keyboard looks cool and the colours are cool it also looks to have the same kind of user interface as the Gizmondo (the new gaming console phone out Feb 2nd) so i guess it has Windows CE.net os does this mean that it will support windows mobile 2003 files or not ?
wow i just seen the Sidekick 2 looks pretty awesome thanks for the info a-poda it looks like a game boy advance then when you flip up the screen it is like a laptop go to: http://www.t-mobile.com/promos/sidekickII.asp?WT.mc_n=Skick2_index&WT.mc_t=OnsiteAd to see what it looks like
Seeing as this phone isn't out yet,perhaps motorola can correct some glaring flaws with this phone.
1.Needs a 256k screen.65k screens are so 2003/2004-ish.
2.Windows Mobile 2004,codename "Magneto" is going to be out soon.You can't install new windows mobile OSes like you can with XP,so this is gonna be a huge complaint among dissatisfied customers.
Memory and battery life seem to be issues, but everything else seems to be there and then some. As a Sidekick 2 user I am pretty happy with my toy, but the MPx has potential to be a real tool and a toy. Can't wait to hold one in my hands to see if it has that WOW appeal. Hope T-mobile picks it up and is available soon here in US... for a decent price... er, make that a fair price.
I totally agree with the other guy.. this fone rox and looks like a laptop but the thing is that the keypad is a bit small and might be hard to use..but this it rox like a mini pocket pc..
The concept of the MPX is ok but I motorla took to long to get this one out I already found pda\cell just as good or better and they wont cost me an arm and leg. Nice pda to look at but too much hype
it just arrived in malaysia , and i saw it near some shops near my workplace...looks reaaly beautiful ...i like the shpae and the shape of thekeys...much better than the nokia comminucator's small outer screen..but both too expensive, for that price i can get a laptop!!
Waited a long time for this....disappointed...any suggestions for another pda phone?
hi! i love mobile phones. and for me flip phones are the best. i have a LG u8120 its a nice flip phone. i had it for atleast 4 months now. but now that i saw the motorola mpx, i said to my self its going to be my next phone,and surely the last phone. i mean look at it!!! its beautiful.
I heard the processor is 200mhz and the L2 is 512k like an Intel processor inside but modified by motorola engineers... hmm.. will it be nice... if using AMD processor nowadays.. lolz
Its HUGE! Its a TWO handed opperation just to flip this brick up! And dont MOTO knows that.. size DOES matter to CONSUMERS?!
it is a great phone! The only concern is the processor speed....200MHz ??to operate BT, Wi-Fi, MS OS....?? No way, u will regret! I used O2 Xphone & HP h6315 (within 3mths)b4 which run on TI processor 200MHz, u will see the performance when more applications run or your RAM used >60%. To run MS OS with Wi-Fi & BT, min processor speed is 400MHz.
