Motorola AURA gets poked, prodded, and photographed

The up-scale AURA might be Motorola’s last attempt to remain relevant in a post-RAZR mobile world and yet the dudes at Mobile Review got their grubby hands on the $2k cell phone. It sounds like they were impressed with the build quality and the round LCD, but Moto might have dropped the ball on the GUI by simply reworking a standard square LCD menu rather than, you know, designing something new. Still, we’ll hold our judgment ’till we can smudge up the screen on the so-called luxury mobile phone ourselves.
