Motorola’s latest clamshell the W220 has gotten FCC approval. The phone is intended as a base level device, so its features are somewhat lacking. Nevertheless, it will sport an FM receiver and a wap 2.0 browser.
Perhaps I’m just falling for a gimmick, but I find something aesthetically pleasing about its modest exterior. I wonder if its retro-esque design will, like the RAZR, help to cultivate a new trend in cell phone appearances. Nah. Probably not, but, for now at least, I wouldn’t mind.
The W220 is expected to drop in Q3 2006, but no details have yet emerged on pricing or carriers.
