i think they used a CTSN 120*120 pixel screen to save battery life. It will probably seem small at first, but I'd get used to it. Can't wait for it to come out.
It's a budget phone, it's supposed to be cheap and thus lacks some features. But I really think it could have used 128*160 screen, doesn't have to be TFT but TFT would be good. And since W230 lacks bluetooth, this phone could use one. The naming somehow says that W270 should bring about more features than W230. But it doesn't. I won't mind though as long as it doesn't cost much more than W230. Seeing a really cheap music phone is a rare occasion.
does anyone know if this phone has mp3 ringtones. It says it has an mp3 player but only polyphonic ringtones, that makes no sense!!!
Yes ur right....... iam damn sure motorola will not give up its name & fame to others............ come on MOTO u can & we are there wid u
One more good ol' American Company going down the tubes, or bought out by the Chinese. Motorola, SHAME ON YOU!!! You are a giant, keeping the mobile phone division alive financially, means nothing to you. On the other hand, maintaining integrity of the Motorola brand as we all know Motorola to be is extremely valuable. You can absolutely bounce back into the market. Here is your opening statement when one enters motorola.com
"We’re scientists. We’re artists. Most of all, we are a global communications leader, powered by, and driving, seamless mobility. Motorola is revolutionizing broadband, embedded systems and wireless networks – bringing cutting-edge technologies into your everyday life, with style"
So why are you giving up? why allow another Company to use the prestigious name MOTOROLA. Paul Galvin the founder would be mighty upset at your decision. And for what? just to enhance the already FAT pockets of shareholders. MOOROLA, GET UP AND FIGHT LIKE A MAN!! I'm sure consumers will remain loyal to you and new business will prevail if you maitain the integrity of the brand. Making a merger or aquisition move like the one you're thinking would be the beginning of the end of MOTOROLA!! For example, Daimler/Chrylser, Ford/Jaguar versus BMW. Although MEGA MERGER OFFERS have been suggested, BMW remains ahead of the game because of integrity of the brand. Don't make the mistake!! Readers and motorola users support this comment, we can all make a difference.
anyone notice on the stock photo the date says 4-10-08? maybe that's a clue to when it will be released in america. I hope it comes soon, i have been waiting SO LONG for a basic phone with mp3 player and radio.
Again, for those of you complaining about the lack of features of this phone, "oh small screen, oh no camera, where's the bluetooth" IT'S A BUDGET PHONE. In other words, it's a type of phone used for VOICE CALLS and SMS MESSAGING for those who also want a music experience in a basic phone. Also some companies don't allow you to bring camera phones, and if you want a camera, THEN GET A CAMERA!!! stop blaming motorola for your desires of "multimedia phones" I love this phone, the moment it comes out i'm getting it.
how much its gona cost ... probably 10$ phone its horible phone get it out of the phone market
Motorola to Exit Cellphone Manufacturing!
Motorola cellphone industryAccording to Nomura International’s Richard Windsor, Motorola may be leaving the handset industry to concentrate on being and enterprise and government company. Moto announced a $388 million operating loss last year. According to Windsor, the problem is non-hardware but the software and platform on which Motorola phones operate.
It’s also unlikely a Chinese outfit will buy out Motorola’s handset division as no one has an idea how to bring it up to the time when Moto RAZR ruled.
the longest battery life of any music phone out there. I have been waiting for motorola to make a KRZR design flip phone with fm radio and music player. My wait is finally over. As soon as this phone comes out, i'm gonna get it!
any idea if it can record voice and phone conversations(limited only by memory)??
3 cheers for MOTO
Motorola is the second company who has dared to come up witha cell phoen that does not have camera after Sony ericsson w950,but that is avery high end fone,thanks Moto for reminding us that a fone can also be made without a Camera, I believe a Phone is for making fone calls & sending SMS,
I also liked it bcoz my company does not allow camera fones & then their are very less options for fones without cameras
I think Nokia & other companies should also starts thinking now
I am under the impression that this phone was designed purely for the purpose of communicationog via TEXT or VOICE CALLING.
Moto has intentionally left out the thrills and frills and sell this phone for the indended prupose of a cell phone. Therfore it has a great battery life and talk time. It is not being depleted by other add ons that defeat the purpose of a cell phone IMO. If you in trouble are you going to worry about the camera u have on ur phone or the MP3 u wann play or the fact that u have enough battery life to make an emergency call or two.
If you like a phone with all the frills then get that. You pay for it.. no need to dis this phone. Compare apples with apples...
I think its time people follow motto and start making phones for their intended means.
btw.. I own a NOKIA 6280 so my opinion is not bias in any way. I think there are lots of people here misisng the point.
great phone, great idea, mega cheap phone with mp3, can't ask for more (or do you expect cheap phones to be on the level of N95?)
Here we go again.
Everytime Motorola releases a new simple, cheap handset it's the same crap.
"WHAT, NO 5 MEGAPIXEL CAMERA?"
"IT'S 2008 MOTO, WHERE'S THE 16 MILLION COLOR SCREEN?"
"HEY MOTO, NO MP3 PLAYER?"
For crying out loud this is a $20 cheap phone that will be sold in developing markets and as a prepaid for those who can't afford anything more.
useless fone wats w/th the microsd w/o a mp3 format??? and w/o a mp3 player??? huh!!! pathetic!!!
Motorola is stepping backwards. having a built-in camera is still important. helps free your pockets of a bulky camera. who ever is designing their phones should try to get pass the "Razor" style too. it's played out. yes, i know that that design was the most popular and highest selling.. blah blah blah... but is it still popular as it was YEARS and YEARS ago?
