The Motorola PEBL was actually quite cool. In a year of angular, flat, and unappealing cellphones, the orotund and organic PEBL felt like something you might have placed on your back at an exclusive spa. Instead, it’s UI was an insipid as the RAZR’s and it just wasn’t angular, flat, and unappealing enough for the free-phone desiring masses.
And so we come to the ROKR U9, a PEBL-alike device in the ROKR music-playing phone family with a slick outer shell and PEBL-like lines. Gaze into it and you can see the truth &mdash that big girls don’t cry. No availability or price.
