    Motorola ROKR E2 in Asia


    Can’t quite tell if this is an Asia-only phone or not, but it seems the ROKR E2 is hitting the streets of Singapore and it’s ready to rumble. It uses a USB cable to load music into an SD card – maxmimum 2GB – and allows you to store up to 500 songs and even has an FM radio tuner when you run out of tunes. The E2 runs Linux, which probably means iTunes is right out in… Read More

    Moto W220 Gets FCC Nod

    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… Read More
