April 14, 2006 10:03 AM | Motorola | Reviews | Comments (1)

Motorola V220 Phone (Cingular) Description
With video playback, gaming, multimedia messaging and a VGA camera with digital zoom, the Motorola V220 is an affordable and powerful way to get in on all the mobile fun. It's the perfect companion to Cingular wireless service. What's more, it's a quad-band phone with global coverage support.

Design
The phone features a sleek clamshell design with a large 128 x 128 color display with 65,000 colors. The outside cover of the handset sports a supplementary 96 x 32 blue monochrome display that can display time, call information, battery and signal strength, and more. The VGA camera lens is housed below this display. A stub antenna is placed on the top right side of the unit. Volume buttons are placed on the left side, as is a USB port for data connectivity.

LG VX8100 EV-DO Phone (Verizon Wireless) Review

April 8, 2006 10:06 AM | LG | Reviews | Verizon |

Get ready for the power of Verizon's exciting V CAST service, which allows you to download or stream full motion video and 3D games, all on your handset. A service like that requires some horsepower, and, happily, the LG VX8100 is up for the task. This upgrade to the VX8000 ups the ante in significant ways; now you get Bluetooth and a MiniSD memory card slot. Plus, with a free software upgrade from Verizon, the VX8100 will play MP3s that are loaded onto the memory card. The phone has also been redesigned for a sleeker profile. As with the VX8000, the phone features a 1.3-megapixel camera with video capture and dual color displays. All this makes the VX8100 the perfect companion in a new era of high-speed wireless content.

Design
The VX8100 features a traditional clamshell design with a very large 176 x 220 color display and support for a whopping 262,000 colors--plenty of room for V CAST content. As mentioned, memory is expandable via a MiniSD slot.  A generous, full-color 128 x 128 supplementary display on the outside of the cover displays incoming call information, battery life, signal strength, graphics, photos, and more. Most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's backlit control pad. The VX8100 also features a standard jack to accept universal hands-free headsets, and up/down keys are located on the left side of the unit.

A supplementary 96 x 96 monochrome screen on the front of the cover keeps you up to speed on time, date, call information, battery and signal strength, and more. Up and down buttons for volume control are placed on the left side, and there's also a button for quick access to camera functions. Most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's control pad. There's also a standard jack to accept universal hands-free headsets, and the phone's charging and data ports are placed on the bottom of the unit. And because the E335's antenna is housed inside the phone, there's nothing to snag or break off.

Motorola ROKR E1 iTunes Phone (Cingular) Review

March 13, 2006 5:38 PM | Cingular | Motorola | Reviews | Comments (1)

Motorola's much-hyped "iTunes phone," the ROKR E1, is a compact triband GSM phone with a lot of fun features, not least of which is the ability to sync up with the same iTunes software on your PC that you use with iPod devices.

Based heavily on Motorola's fine E398 handset, the ROKR E1 weighs 3.9 ounces and measures up at 4.3 by 1.8 by 0.83 inches. It has a pearl-white exterior finish that houses a pair of stereo polyphonic speakers, a 262k color display, and a good, video-capable VGA camera with flash, as well as a nice keypad and dedicated camera and volume controls.

The keypad offers a good feel, and the green and red call control keys and joystick are sufficiently separated from the rest of the keys to keep from being pressed accidentally.
