Gsmhelpdesk.nl has posted information on four phones, which according to them will be part of the 2008 product line of Motorola. We are rather skeptical about it, but will post this information. All phones are with code-names, which is typical considering there is lots of time until they are released.
Motorola SKARVEN is 8-megapixel cameraphone with optical zoom and 2.8” inch, 16 million color display. Similar to the Z8, it uses the kick-slide form-factor but judging from the blurry image, we guess it will also have touch-sensitive buttons. If this information is right, it will be one of the most advanced Motorola phones.
Motorola X PIXL is rumored to be the first phone, launched in cooperation with Kodak. A 5-megapixel candybar, it is also targeted as dedicated cameraphone and as rival to the Sony Ericsson K850 and other models from the class. Rumors say it will be available as the Motorola Z12.
The third new phone is the Motorola TEXEL which is targeted to the music fans. Similar to the E8, it has multilayered keyboard (nine layers of characters) with “morph technology”. This means that each key can display (and respectively execute) nine different functions.
Motorola GENGHIS is the last phone that the site scooped. It is QWERTY-equipped phone for the masses. Considering the Q-family, it may run on WM6 Standard OS but still this is definitely not sure.
According to the site, Motorola will keep the ROKR branding for its music-dedicated phones, but will start other families: ZOOM for advanced cameraphones and MULTI Q for the Q-like devices that have business-oriented functionality
Next time GSM Arena MUST include drop test to test for one's phone solidity. hahaha.
2 drops - cover crack
5 drops - phone malfuction
10 drop - LCD gone
20 drop - totally destroyed!!!!
the circle is for navigation of songs ... it functions much like an ipod
Bonafide fingerprint magnet and doesn't look like it'll survive a drop
It is mentioned that it has a 2" screen. I dont think so. Anybody have any idea about this??
Wow, so basically with this phone you get four things in one. A phone, the keypad lights up. A music player, the music keys light up, a camera, the camera keys light up. SMS, keypad again.
My question is what is that circle in the middle for? Is that a new type of navigation like the ipod wheel...? If it is NICE!!!!!!!!
Not bad, but sounds little bit rough.
Too small screen but wide key pad.
I do not think it has many function, though.
Impressive looking from those pictures. Too bad it's not 3G & the screen seems a bit small!
i don`t like the design.....the sensitive touchpad....just holding the phone is dificult....this is the reason why normal phones have buttons you have to press them....
can any tell me plz is motorola going to give f.m.radio feature in its every handset from next year means 2008
