Geese, 19 Nov 2008Motorola it's enough, when can u wake up, give us some good looking lineup?good looking? is n95 a good looking phone? to you maybe because its chunky and it compensate the inadequacy of your lifestyle... but for me this phone is interesting and simple yet it boast adequate specification.
To all those who say that this phone is ugly and nothing special..
Too right you are
I heard that Motorola mobile division is closing up? But yet I still see new phone coming. Is it true ?
seriously, why would we want to buy this phone? It's quite bulky, nothing spectacular in feature and design. Nothing to shout about. It's like making mobile phones for the sake of making it. Just been in the game, just being one of the boys.
Motorola is like playing catch up with the rest. I really mean the rest. If not for America market, motorola is have been long gone. It's a matter of time. Don't u think?
Nice looking phone. A mix of Nokia and Samsung design.
Motorola it's enough,
when can u wake up,
give us some good looking lineup?
How Much is the ptice of Motorola VE66
Not sure which news is correct, I've just heard from elsewhere the 3G version is called VE70, which is available in South Korea.
Anyway, seems like Moto like to make different models for different markets. Previous examples include V8 vs. V9, Q8 vs. Q9...where the non-3G version was sold (mostly) for the mainland China market.
Anonymous, 18 Nov 2008What Motorola VE66?? You mean Motorola is still in business??? If Moto is totally out of business, the police officers / fire fighters in your neighborhood will NEVER respond to your 911 calls...because companies like N-brand just isn't capable to make COMMUNICATION
the UI looks refereshing
What happened to there First 5 mega-pixel camera mobile we never saw in the U.k Why?Don"t Motorola like to compete in Europe as they never had much succses after the V3
What Motorola VE66?? You mean Motorola is still in business???
At long last I can have a decent Moto with some sound specs but is there's any document/PDF viewer and GPS? And lastly the screen is far too little for a slider because the main reason for a slider is to move/hide the keypad under the screen so that you can enlarge i t upto 2.8" like the N95 8Gig. Nice attempt though Moto!
The tiny screen is a total turn off. Not even going to bother with its reviews =)
wifi in a 2.2" 256k screen? hahaha no waaaaaay!!
At least a good spec motorola phone. But the menu of motorola's phones sucks (and its music player suck too). The best is that it runs LINUX MOBILE!
Picture This: Motorola Announces MOTO VE66, Delivering Crystal Clear Calls, Brilliant Images and Pin-Sharp Music
MOTO VE66 sports audio-enhancing CrystalTalk™ technology and the first widget integration on a Motorola mobile device
SCHAUMBURG, Ill. – Nov. 18, 2008 – Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced the arrival of MOTO VE66 with enhanced CrystalTalk™ audio technology, a 5-megapixel camera and MP3 player-like navigation for a 1-2-3 punch of great call quality, sharp pictures and an enjoyable music experience.

Automatic color saturation delivers whiter whites, crisper blacks and colors true to life. Use the device’s landscape feature to view photos on the brilliant color display as desired.

The MP3 player with USB 2.0 enables high-speed access to data and downloads on your PC while the Wi-Fi connectivity makes browsing the Internet or sharing photos, audio or video files with friends a cinch1. And with integrated FM radio with RDS2 – to help you "name that tune" – you can discover new music while you’re in motion.
