i think moto is missing a catch for making phones affordable with music solutions but not compromising on its display and scrn size i mean there r many jukebox available which can play videos not to mention just audiophiles and i think moto will never beat sony erisson on creating styling and perfection with its user friendly interface the radio is far much better on almost all of the previosuly knw low budget phones essentialy (non-cam) phones and pathetically nokia is better bcos @least it gives in its user friendliness.customizations.large scrn(@least 128*160pix) if not jus FLASHLIGHT~~
although there is no Bluetooth, the W230 really rocks because Motorola thought of a Below 3000 phone with extendable memory that too upto 2 GB.
And of course with me working in a call centre to store more than 1000 songs thru the USB port and carry my data in this phone is something that I really am delighted to know. GO MOTO GO !
ya this is the perfect for me from motorola becuz i m in call centre ...i m waiting for this type of fone from long time
and camera is not allow there
omg if only i can give the chairman of motorola a big whack in the back of his head to wake him up...
MOTOROLA always makes a mistake in each and every launch of there phones, I don't know why but it's become a habbit for them. For example the w270 & w230. I mean to say there is something which customer will be lacking i.e; BLUETOOTH. I agree this is targeted at the low end market, but it would be better if motorola makes a note to fix this problem. Else these phones really ROCKS.
I think motorola can make this type of phone for 08 it sound like they want to make it for ppl who have low class and some ppl don't want to $ too much on Mobil. But the battery is better then some model of Nokia like 7030 got Camera MP3 Radio... but Battery only 700mAh, how can battery can support last long???
Motorola made this phone to market it to African countries. That's why it's dual band GSM 900 / GSM 1800 and has 7 African languages.
The American model of this phone is more for those who want a simple yet functional phone for for those who can't afford fancy phones.
