The MOTOROKR is a capable phone all in all, however it might not be able to match up with other Smartphones on the market. The lack of third party application has hampers the platform, and the inability to edit document files might turn away some potential business users. The camera is not the best and the music keys are not the most user-friendly. The muffled voice audio from the earpiece is a let down, as is the lack of on-screen T9 that forces users to use the stylus, and hence increases the chance of losing it.

On the other hand, the E6 design and MOTOROKR campaign may still work pretty well for the young crowd that the company is hoping to capture. The great user interface, excellent handwriting recognition, generous pre-installed games, native standard earphone jack, and the fun ancillary programs will appeal to Asian markets. The voiced bilingual dictionary and the fact that you can now enter Chinese by writing it might interest language learners. The speediness of system and the reasonable price tag will also attract users that have been hesitating to join the smartphone family.

Pro: Touchscreen Con: Bulky Using experience: 2 years The phone is an amazing device. Its touchscreen and if you want you can hack it and put the iphone theme, for all you iphone fans. The only bad thin is that they should of made the screen much bigger. Its a bit bulky and the touchscreen sort of gets on your nerves sometimes. But since the keypad is small, thats why it comes with the touchscreen stick which is very small at the point so that allows you to write comfortably, unless you want to use your hands. Bottom line, its a great phone. Less

Strengths: Light Weight, right size with PDA functions. Weaknesses: Only in color black. Using experience: 1 Day This is my second Motorola phone. The V3 is all around USA and proof to be a reliable phone. This newest model definitely better in term of function. A fully loaded cell phone that is the best choice - money wise.
