see I dont get broadband... I live in the country, no high speed dial up either, just straight dial up... I love 3G and wifi hotspots.. i need 3g and wifi on a phone... thats why i got e51. I used to love moto so much, just kinda lame now. too much looking the same and too many low end models. I like this phone but probably not gonna get it until 5 years later when it's $100

i dont think all phones need 3G tech, especially music phones lyk this phone. in my opinion, there is no point paying extra for good mobile internet speeds when you have a grat broadband connection on your computer.
dear unknown i dont think u know how imp is 3g tech in a fone. 1 st know why fones need 3g tech and then post ur opinion. bye for now
the only thing lacks on tis fone is the 3g technology
If you want 3G technology; see and buy other 3G Phone. My question is your brand adore have all type has 3G technology? If not; so you has stupid opinion.
Motorola Rocks the Red Carpet in True Hollywood Glamour
ROKR™ E8 Makes a Fashion Statement with Hollywood’s Elite
Los Angeles, CA – February 6, 2008 – Motorola will deliver the ultimate in music luxury when it hits the red carpet and debuts the ROKR E8 in true Hollywood style. Continuing its yearly tradition, Motorola presented each of the Academy Award® nominees in the directing and four acting categories with the not-yet-available ROKR E8 – making them the first U.S. consumers to experience the product.
Each nominee received their ROKR E8 in a personalized, custom-made box. Keeping up with the latest red carpet trends, the ROKR E8 arrived encased in a keepsake box wrapped in an iridescent faux iguana print with a contrasting, yet complimentary, textured inside. Female nominees received a fashionable fuchsia colored box (with a rose pink interior), while the male nominees received a handsome cobalt colored blue (with a dusty blue interior) box. Each box was personalized with the nominee’s name and category.
The nominees also received the Motorola S9-HD™ headset, giving them a wireless music experience. The Motorola S9-HD is the new benchmark of wireless music powered by Bluetooth® wireless technology and enhanced with high-definition audio and ear buds that reduce background noise and improve comfort. The unique behind-the-head design creates a secure and stable fit, plus easy to use controls for track selection, volume, play/pause and send/end that allows the user to manage music and calls from the headphones.
Motorola designed ROKR E8 to deliver an uncompromised consumer experience for music or talk. Using breakthrough and patented pending ModeShift technology which presents which presents users with only the controls they need, at the time they need them, magically transforming from music player to phone with the touch of a button.
When powered off, the surface of ROKR E8 is smooth, with no visible keys. Power on the device and it presents a virtual numbered keypad on the front surface. With one “press” of the virtual music key, the phone keypad disappears and control keys for the music player – play, pause, fast forward and rewind – appear in its place.
ROKR E8 marks the debut of the new FastScroll™ navigation wheel from Motorola, a variable-speed touch control that lets consumers easily scroll through all of the content stored on the device. With a gentle slide of the thumb, the wheel quickly scrolls through your music (music mode), contacts (phone mode), calendar (phone mode), or multimedia (imaging mode) content. With 2GB of internal memory and optional external memory up to 4GB, you can take your music wherever you go. Music transfers quickly with USB 2.0. The device is compatible with Windows Media Player 11 on the PC, which also provides access to more than 200 online music stores.
In phone mode, ROKR E8 provides outstanding voice quality using Motorola CrystalTalk technology. The powerful device can receive calls while downloading2 or playing music, text messaging, surfing the Web2 or taking pictures. Quality construction and materials help make ROKR E8 durable and reliable, and a high gloss front, aluminum soft back, spun metal side keys and engraved banding offer the modern style expected from Motorola.
my information is from websites i have seen.
i hope it does come out with no problems, i really like the idea behind this phone
do u know forsure it is coming out in march, best bet is to probably wait and see how it works in north america, considering this is the first one like this from motorola sure the first one is gona suck as most of them do
Thanks to Singapur's ppl for the info. So, when it's avaiable in some country(the first avaiability ofc), and someone is from this country, interested in the phone and reading here, will be nice to tell us the price, avaiability and his live experience with the E8..
From the mobile-review.com's words, the pic's shows only 10% of E8's real charm.. So, we wait for the ipod mobile killer(I except iphone, for me thats a bad try from Apple, but still they made their huge sells.. I'm have very respect in Apple, I even want the new MacBook Pro, one of the greatest laptops avaiable.. For the Mac Pro i don't need to say words.. it's gergous!) :)
Direct sunlight? So? Not a big problem. How about other shinny phone? How about screen can to be mirror? The fact is when Motorola Rokr E8 show in CES 2008 is not in the dark room, right?
this fon has great innovations, no doubt about that. it's why it won awards at the 2008 CES. im a fan of the form factor and the technology this monster has underneath its charred skin. oh yeah, i'm an absolute fan. but with keypads that solely rely on lighting, i jsut can't help but doubt the effectivity of its use under direct sunlight. thoughts anyone?
Hahaha... You are so funny or you in the jungle so never know about Landscape screen. Landscape screen is not a bit funny; that's normal screen. Landscape screen use for Motorola Q Series, Motorola Sidekick Slide, Nokia 9300, Nokia 9500, Nokia E90 and much more.
In the market around January to March 2008.
The price around USD 400.
i love this phone and am defenitly getting it when it comes to the uk in Q1
Just had a thought , even though the screen i landscape which might seem a bit funny most phones i have 2 take pics in landscape so with this one you dont even have to turn the screen . LOL
