I don't get it: What was Apple thinking to allow Motorola mess with 'the ipod idea'. The iPod is stylish, strong and easy to use. None of this can be found in this phone. First of all it's plain ugly and looks no way near the iPod. Second the iPod is extremely easy to use, which can not be said from Motorola. Clumsy and complicated menu's.
I don't get it
I wonder what has been improved over the E398?? I mean, is there anything in terms of quality, because other than that it's identical with the old brother...
Motorola's V and E series are very much only 3 or 4 base models, from then on everything gets duplicated with minor improvements...like the V5 and V6 series.
This phone will find it's owner I think, but in no way is it going to replace an iPod unless you can upgrade it to at least 2GB of SD memory.
This phone has already been on sale for the last 2 years! It is the Motorola e398 painted white with new firmware and an extra button ... what a joke!
and one more thing guys.... why doest i-tunes make everything ok... its rubbish!!! you have to keep a hard copy on your pc!! taking up more space.... Iriver 20g plays video and is better value! apple and moto both suk!
why would anyone ever waste their money on this piece of crap! come on people this phone was out in uk last year with black eye peas loaded onto it to try and sell it... it didnt sell then..... Buy a cheap pay as you go phone and an i river.... much better option!
Get the nokia 6680 or 6630 (very loud phones!!) whats the difference in having itunes or normal mp3's downloaded from the computer to phone by either usb or memory card reader. Motorola are going back in time and not forward.
P.s this phone has a nice megapix camera (JOKE!!!)
No way to think about this phone , all futures alreday available long time back ! waaaz up Moto
mn...i liked this phone...but havin a VGA camera is a major drawbak....nw tht i think of it...it sucks!!...ill keep the iPod...screw u motorolla!
I don't see the point - people willing to spend this much on the new phone should just get a Nano, glue it onto a k750 or something and you're good to go :)
what's the point with this phone ?
it has no Mpix camera
it has no gigs memory
it has no special styling
every feature of this phone already available in another brand for 1-2 years. ie. NEC e616 (my old phone can do same thing as this ROKR)
I love moto.. users who once use moto are readily available to pickup any moto handsets and can make out the menu easily.. even though they look diffferent
The worst of all mobiles are the NOKIA... they change skin but inside they are the same old stupid, time consuming, hanging, boring menu, virus prone... with a F@#$ed up interface and display. And it acts like a radio.. Ask any nokia guy to mnavigate to the volume control application of his mobile and you will see him surfing as he is on google.com. comeon guys.. why radio when there is mp3. dun worry . one day moto guys will get for you a "worldspace" included into their mobiles... dont insult the class of a moto asking for a meagre "radio". thats fit for nokias... something they should have so that one can pass time
apparently no bluetooth data transfer and worst part it has a VGA camera, do they think they are 2 years behind or soemthing, plus 100 songs wont mean it can replace an ipod
this phone is so cheap..... like it looks old and junky why ot somthing cool, the Toshiba MP3 wcdma/gsm handset looks more like an ipod and much nicer with a enriched 2.2CCD cam~
Wasn't this a phone? USD250, better to put my money on new nano 4GB flash memory iPOD player. Too disappointed with Motorola phones. Every version is the same, just curious what the engineer doing there? Still sleeping?
the phone is good, but is a low-end itunes phone, a rival for w550i/w600i definetly not for w800i which is the best in its class and top-of-the-range.
hmmm... features ok.. but i can't believe that this is made altogether with ipod... which supposed to be the rival for sony ericsson's walkman phone.. this is really dissapointing since W800 is alot better in almost every features.. e.g. W800 memory up to 4GB, camera 2MP, smaller in size and basically you can do alot more things with W800 than with this phone
