Hoping this VE66 can display animated wallpaper when stand by, not merely run its screensavers as usual Motoral phones. Even cheaper cellphones & most of other branded cellphones can display it. Last week I bought Motozine ZN5, that I thought today Motorola cellphones already can display the animated wallpapers but the fact it's still can't. What a disappointment, moreover video only qcif quality. Most of all, in the future might drive to consider look up other brands which far more advanced at the similar price level.
By the way, who cares. Moto is still just a little fly on the wall for Nokia. brushed aside like yesterdays news.
Nokia is the best.
Anonymous, 30 Oct 2008I look Sony Ericsson W760 copied from Motorola Rizr Z3, in this case the chin place. I don't l... moreOh really, is that why sony ericsson is still worth 76 billion dollars? What u are looking at when u say rank is only 50 dollar phones to third world contries an sold units, not profit in currency. Motorola is not even close to the currency profit in the western world. Just now in July they even tried to sell the company to ericsson for just 800 million dollars. Stop talkning nonsense.
"Motorola's handset division recorded a loss of $1.2 billion in the fourth quarter of 2007, while the company as a whole earned $100 million during that quarter. It lost several key executives to rivals and the web site TrustedReviews has called the company's products repetitive and uninnovative. Motorola laid off 3,500 workers in January 2008, followed by a further 4,000 job cuts in June and another 20% cut of its research division a few days later. In July 2008, a large number of executives left Motorola to work on Apple Inc.'s iPhone. Facing bankruptcy, the company has been put on offer for sale to several other major rivals such as Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics and Sony Ericsson, yet all have rejected the offer. In July 2008, analyst Mark McKechnie from American Technology Research said that Motorola "would be lucky to fetch $500 million" for selling its handset business and analyst Richard Windsor said that Motorola might have to pay someone to take the division off the company and that the company may even exit the handset market altogether. Its global market share has been on the decline; from 18.4% of the market in 2007, it had a share of just 9.7% by 2008"
This is public knowledge on tv and in financial magazines.
I look Sony Ericsson W760 copied from Motorola Rizr Z3, in this case the chin place. I don't look Motorola VE66 is similiar like Sony Ericsson W760.
Sony Ericsson Fanboy. Read the news about what happen with Sony Ericsson for now nearly bankrupt. Don't think Sony Ericsson better than Motorola. Motorola is rank 3 and Sony Ericsson still rank 5.
This is note for Sony Ericsson Fanboy. This is what Sony Ericsson copy from Motorola.

batman, 27 Oct 2008motorolla is not in the same league wud nokia samsung n sony Yeah, because when Moto was making mobile phones, others were making TV's...
ehhhh.. sony ericsson w760 someone? this is more in the line of embarrassing than it is outrageous. This is not the first time in recent time period, the zn200 is a shamaless close to looking like a ericsson s500 black edition.
ok, i'll love to see some feedback, people always moan about motorola not having wifi, hsdpa etc... its got it all now... 30fps perhaps people... motorola are slowly working to top handsets

johndru, 26 Oct 2008i will buy this if the price is right. this SHOULD BE LOWER than N82. i repeat, based on its f... moreThere's no need to shout out loud that the Z8 is bad. Try Linux phones like the E8 (beats the iPod in sound quality) or the ZN5 (beats most 5MP camera phones) because they're more user friendly and customizable.
i will buy this if the price is right. this SHOULD BE LOWER than N82. i repeat, based on its features, this SHOULD BE CHEAPER than all the other 5mp phones.
look at z8.. for pete's sake, why is it of the same price as other 5mp cameras? they think that the slide and bend form factor is the reason (and i think the ONLY reason) why SOME, okay a few people bought that "symbian uiq3" phone. a very USELESS symbian for a non-touch screen phone that is.
i have this z8 now as my spare and i REGRET having this. i should have bought another spare like nokia 6120. damn!
its realy funny SE fanboy say its copy from SE
its a motorola and Copy is not motorola Do ...
Ha ha JEALOUS .............
Wow...its Nokia, Sony Ericsson, HTC, and Blackberry.
Have a nice day!
