Frank was obviously being sarcastic you humourless idi*t.
This phone looks like a HK fake or something done on photoshop I'll wait until CTIA to believe it.
does this phone use the 2 sims at the same time...like i can get a call from one network and then the other network without switching the phone to the other sim....hummmmmmm that would be reak cook!!
That's the biggest BS I've heard in a while!
Iceland doesn't even have CDMA and also lacks the population for an expensive and costly device like that.
I don't know where you're pulling this info out of, but man... there's not one half-way intelligent sentence you put in there.
Every phone should be a dual sim/dual network phone. Do you hear me nokia?? Start making phones who support two networks at once. I know it is way better (for nokia) when people have to buy two of their phones but a nokia DUOS would be great!
hi. i saw on a motorola forum..rumors about moto ming2 or A1600 basically same shape and functions but with 3G and wi-fi...i think A1800 would be similar too
yes, moto will release this phone:
1. it will take 3 years to get in the stores.
2. it will only be released in Iceland.
3. it won't have 3G, only Edge because the OS doesn't support it.
4. In four years from now they will re-release it as a music phone.
5. The music phone will only have a 50 song limit.
6 The music phone will have no external storage card.
7. It will have no mini-stereo plug.
8. The camera will go down to 2 Megapixel.
7. It will be called the Moto Mockr.
Yeah, it seems that this moto won't be like the rest, but cmon, it's motorola. This phone is gonna lag, crash, have 5 yearold menus again. Motorola is garbage. Never again.
I'll stick to my blackberry and nokia.
the fact is moto will fail big time with this model.
Then Nokia will put this model in the market with their dumb symbian OS and it will be superhit and people will say it was nokia who invented it.
i think in regards to coverage this is one of the best options plus in you live in north amercia you can move in between
providers. (one company offered me a 17 dollar cdma plan )
so for gsm ill get a pay go sim card and use that when im out of my daytime minutes one question though that means id have two cell numbers right?i think so if my basic understanding is correct
or is it like the blackberry world edition thats locked into cdma and uses gsm where theres no cdma coverage? (i know this for a fact i sell them so dont tell me diffrent me no stupid) but anyway in regards to style (they were way off) this is for people who look for coverage not style i got one other question does this mean this phone will work everywhere in the world?
To be objective, it must be said that the A1800 seems to be a good phone in itself... GSM/CDMA sim slots and the metalic cover are cool (although the metalic would be cooler if it covered the whole shell)... but after the A1200, and given the recent advances in mobile technology and exterior design, more is to be expected. For the upgrade from the V3 to the V8, Motorola made significant exterior design improvements, but the Ming 2 just went metalic and changed a few buttons, it seems.
Is there any reality to the 1600 rumors? Is it possible that the Ming 2 will have a few more tricks up its sleeves? A better OS with better animation and easier theme loading? Cool color options for the metalic cover? Stong speakers? Larger memory capacity? I really really hope so. I'd rather not switch from Motorola, after having owned both the A780 and the A1200, but at this point, its a realistic posibility. And by the way, I hope we don't have to wait until the NEXT Ming dynasty for the phone to finally be released.
Hi to all, I am regular reader of this site, and I am happy that a company like Moto might have a thing or two up it's sleeve, especially if one considers the possible duopoly of Nokia and Samsung. But this dual sim technology has been marketed by the Asian counterparts ages ago....so what's new and exciting ?! With the falling prices of point and shoot megapixel cameras, I would be more happy to see a well priced communications featured mobile phone, like 3G, Wifi etc. rather than megapixel autofocus etc etc mobile phone.
Motorola could have created a super sequal to the Ming that would far surpass the original, especially after the long wait. Having happily owned the orignal, I was, in short, expecting the ONE... a device unleashed to perfectly blend the mobile phone and the pda, as the Ming 1 attempted to accomplish. Instead, the A1800 keeps roughly the same size and exterior design as the original, with a questional color scheme to top it off (compared to the Ming 1's pitch black). In addition, while dual sim slots, 3 MP capability, and probable faster processing are pluses, Motorola should have been able to accomplish that and more on a thinner phone. Anyone who's seen images of the rumored sleek and stylish A1600 knows what I'm sayin'.
If Motorola was going to keep the old exterior design and size, they could have added a better camera (like the LG Viewty), 3G capability (like the N95), or atleasat a better monitor (the old ming has touch screen durability issues). Better speakers on the FIRST VERSION wouldn't hurt, either.
If the detailed specs aren't hardcore, it's going to be tough to go with this phone. I may buy it just to prove myself wrong, but the truth remains: The Ming 2 should have ROCKED!
I bought ming A1200 !
what's techin ming A1800 better than the '' ming A1200 '' ?
how can buy this product in I.R.Iran ?
Definately a mobile to watch. This might take a step further in mobile technology in future to come , speacialy with used to be the leaders of wireless tech. It is high time now that people should get multiple benefits of pure communication further with their budget in limits. Good wishes to all remarkable peoples of mobile companies. Offcourse to GSMArena too.
plz launch a phone whose look will not be similar that the other one../
so ... moto is going to reuse the design that brought it success 2 decades back. no wonder the ugly and unhyegenic abhishek bachchan is moto's brand ambassador in india. after all he too is getting his bread and butter by selling his "superstar billionnaire corrupt farmer" father's success dating 3 decades back.
welcome to the lazy idiot's paradise where money talks and bulls**t walks and creativity commits suicide every darned day. welcome to india.
This is a really great solution.....If Nokia would have announced this phone,ppl would have said that its a great phone with taking into account the fact that 90% of the consumers world wide don't know abt there handset or any manufacturer they just get impressed by paper specs.....
