This is called opportunity lost .Motorola had a great chance to roll out a competetion for n91 as well as w800 but what they did! oh my god an old crap renewed version of e398 .the design is a great let down and the specifications are dull .compare a 2mp cam with a vga camera oh my god .they just wasted the contract with apple for itunes.this phone stands no where.
I-pod shuffle is less than 100€ and far better than this ugly thing.
Moto phones easily get damaged and speakers have always been moto weakness.
50% of the problems with moto phones are due to not working speaker, and this often happens with phones which are only few months old.
Maybe moto fixed this problem in this model, but if it is not so I think they made a phone which is a huge nonsense.
(Music phone need resistant speakers more than stereo sound!)
Anyway, though N91 and W800 don't have i-tunes, I think they are still the best ones among music phones.
its great this is fanstastic ths phone has a video recorder the rokr e1 is GREAT!!!!!
waaaaaa i love this phone it has now a VIDEO i like the motorola e398
VGA cam is crap otherwise this phone is a wanna be version on w800i!!! buy that coz its better...
So what's so cool about this phone? I listen to music on my 512MB MMC for almost one year on my 6600 :P
all the wait for nothing the nokia n91 is much better than this fone
Hmm...a replica of e398...peepz i've got only 1 thing 2 tell ya..i've used e398 and it simply SUCKS
Many of moto fans were waiting for this phone to be announced and hope it keeps to the expectations.
Excerpt from BBC : Announced by Apple boss Steve Jobs the device will be able to store about 100 songs and play them out randomly like the iPod Shuffle.
100 songs and VGA camera. Still interested in this, anyone?
E398,that all this is plus the itunes software,it doesn't have a megapixel cam,nor can the storage be increased from 512MB coz' that's the largest available as GSMArena says..and stereo sound but no headphone jack,hmmmmm.....i'll wait for the N91,probably apple will give out the itunes software for the mobile platform and N91 will suit it.
people, this cell phone is a base for E398 like said before by others, it has a lousy camera wich i have tried, even nokia 3650 has better image and even though it's a very old model, now this might be a cheap solution, but i recomend to buy the cheap version (Sonyericsson w550) or the complete version (Sonyericsson w600)with are very good cellphones.
The volume is so bad. Some more the battery didn't last for long when playing music. Totaly not worth USD250 if susbrice Cingular. USD 100 still can be accept. Motorola always is behind the compatitor. Sad.
Hmm I do believe that with a magical wave of ones hacking wand you could have made this phone from an e398. Watch this... Abracadabra .::POOF::. instant i398. Hmm, not much to write home about.
nice phone, too bad it doesn't have a megapixel camera. can't have everything i guess. i'm sure the stero speaker must sound good though.
