Meets most of your requirements. 200 euros might be a limiting factor here, you will have to make some compromises, decide which features you want most. If you can compromise on touchscreen, you can get some nice stuff. For Image editing, you can find some cool Symbian apps if you opt for a S60 set or try to get a JAVA application otherwise. Tell us what do you come up with.
Hey, i like speech recognition E8 but i also want good battery life, good audio output, but i also prefer touch screen, cause its easy to msg by writing and typing on its keyboard, and do lg coojie has speech recognition. i like imaging and music too
in sony ericsson u can zoom in save image in diff sizes.
is lg cookie that
my budget is b/w 15euro to 200 euro.
main feature i want is
image and video editing
music(it should not hang)
amazing battery life like sony ericsson

simple answer first...
yes you can install java apps on beat. java apps can be installed on almost any set except a few low end ones.
now time for a more complex answer...
dont go for samsung BEATs, their sound quality and fidelity is not good, check it out here http://www.smape.com/en/reviews/motorola/RMAA_test_1.html . There are a few good sets in E8's price range which might interest you keeping music, vids and cam in mind :
- LG cookie KP500 : good audio, big screen for videos, good cam, really cheap for a touchscreen phone, but no 3.5 mm jack
- Nokia N81 : good audio, big screen, better cam than E8, great support for symbian applications
- and finally E8 : awesome sound, great call quality, easy msging, 2GB builtin mem + upto 16 GB card tested and working, nicely built, but screen is small for vids and cam is poor (sorry to say). if you wanna save money and can sacrifice a bit on looks, EM30 is there with same audio engine as E8 and much cheaper.
well, i selected E8 as i'm an audiophile. i've found E8 to be the sexiest phone around and i dont bother about other things. thing might be different for you or same, i dont know. better do some research before finalizing on any cell, sorry if i've confused you :P ask us if you wanna know anything else, we're always on the lookout to help :)

You can find a number of useful applications on getjar dot com. Download the jad and jar files, place them on your memory card, browse them from your phone's file manager and select the option to install.
While downloading, make sure that application's resolution matches your mobile. As a matter of fact, a lots of good applications come with flexible screen size which fits on all screens.
Hope it helps :)
can i install applications such as dictionary, games etc like installing application on nokia and sony erricson on this fone
it is the best set in moto
becoz 2gb internal slim nice cam nkeypad n sound is too horrible

1. Make sure your battery is not deep discharged, check your batt in some other E8. I've seen a few cases where E8 batts got deep discharged, and phone cant recharge the baty from such a low level. As a result, you can neither switch on the phone nor charge the battery.
2. If there was an update error, get your original (stock) firmware from any of the modding site, get the necessary third party tools and reflash your firmware to original one. Once you are back to your old factory firmware, you can then retry updating using motorola updates.
If you opt option 2, be sure to download only a stock firmware and not a modded one. Also match your firmware and bootloader version. About half the times, the third party flashing tools used can update your firmware even if your cell is not starting at all, so you might have a luck here. But remember that this might void your warranty.
Personally, I'd suggest you to visit a service center to cut all the crap :)
Hi, I tried using Motorola's Software Update since it says that it will keep the performance of the phone at it's best. Now my phone is dead, not functioning, everytime I turn it on, it just flashes white screen for about 3 seconds then it turns off, then it flashes white screen again, then turns off again, and so on until I remove the battery. I tried the bootloader ("#" + "*" + "power on") then used the Motorola's Software Update again. The software updater does recognized that an error occurred while updating my phone but it doesn't recognize my phone's infos like IMEI, which I believe is the reason why it always fail to update. PS, the first time I used the software updater, my phone's IMEI and other infos are recognized.
Anyone with the same experience?
Anyone knows a solution for this aside from taking the phone to the service center.
Thank you in advanced.
my uncle bought an e8, what is the subsidiary number password? is that personal number? if it is why my uncle dont know? pls... reply emmidiately...thanks.

I understand that Australia has a top rated bluetooth headset brand called BlueAnt, their Z9i and V1 are highly rated to be among the best in the world right now. I'm seriously considering the Z9i for my next upgrade and would ike to see if E8 and Z9i make a good combination. Happy ROKR-ing!

I bought my ROKR E8 5 days ago and am very impressed at the qaulity of phone. Im particularly impressed at its quality in relation to its price. Ive adjusted to the key pad and am not disapointed at the slight delay. Ive had no problems synchronizing the phone to PC and obtaining my contacts, all sorted with no fuss. Given its an australian model i anticipate the problems experienced in the US and UK should not be a factor. Thanks again Stuart.

I flashed my phone and then it looked like i had way too many songs on my phone memory, i think over 100. i deleted 70 of them and phone suddenly "recognized" the remaining tracks and plays all of them and no more "refreshing your list" lagging.
The only issue left is the battery life. i'm purchasing another motorola battery. hope it would fix my problem.
sara, 24 Feb 2009hallo! a question... can you change themes or screensavers on rokr e8? can you download them? ... moreHi Sara, the only way you can change its themes and colors is by modding the E8. I'm not sure about new releases of the phone, though if it has themes or colors on it.
Anonymous, 23 Feb 2009is this phone release in the philippines already?Yes, it's been available in the Philippines since mid-September of last year I think.
walksy, 26 Feb 2009Does anyone know if your contacts, music etc are transferrable from an E8 phone onto PC and vi... morewalksy,
I was also a previous V8 user and currently using E8. If you've been using V8, I'm sure you already knew the procedures involved concerning the contacts and music transfer between V8 and your PC via Motorola Phone Tool. It's exactly the same for E8 since E8's utilizing the same Linux OS like V8, difference is E8 has different version. (Doesn't really matter on the version, technically, they both operate about the same). Even with the interface difference on E8 with Fastscroll wheel, the operation is very user friendly, you don't need the manual for that. I really like the E8 but still missed some advantages of V8, guess nothing's perfect after all. For me, the V8's signal reception and voice quality are better than E8 eventhough E8's are already good for me. 100 Moto has the same opinion too, maybe due to the flip design of V8. Other than that, E8 would have the upper hand on memory card slot, morphing keypad and fastscroll wheel. Even though both phones are using Linux OS, you'll find V8's smoother and faster in terms of key-pressing-to-screen-response time, even though the difference could be in mili-seconds and it's occasional and not all the time. If you're so used to the speed the way V8 responded, like me intially, you'll expect E8 to behave the same, so you need to manage your own expectation on this aspect prior to buying E8. For me this is not an issue. The "occasional lag" is possibly due to the Morphing keypad, fastscroll wheel or maybe the full haptics keypad that added more loads to the same 500Mhz processor that both phones are using. Another info that you might need to be aware of is that some American E8 users have been facing problem with E8, particularly E8 that are from T-xxxile (hope you could figure the "x"s up). I truly believe the problems they faced are not phone based but more on modifications performed on the phone.
There you have it, good luck to your new E8.
