Hands-on with the HTC Imagio, Motorola Barrage and Entice

Hands-on with the HTC Imagio, Motorola Barrage and Entice
PhoneArena Hands-On Preview of the HTC Imagio XV6975, Motorola Barrage V860 and Entice W766.
Expect our full reviews soon!


The HTC Imagio is the first smartphone to be released by Verizon that runs Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional, and also the only one that comes with VCast Mobile TV, powered by Qualcomm's FLO TV network. The Imagio is an overall large device, measuring 4.60"H x 2.40"W, but we don't mind since the screen is 3.6" with a resolution of 480x800 WVGA. We like the updated TouchFLO 3D user interface, as it makes using the device less complex. The included camera can take images up to 5MP and record videos at 640x480 VGA. It comes with the Opera browser, which renders web sites nicely, and Wi-Fi is also included. Since the Imagio is a global device, it can operate on CDMA, quad-band GSM, and UMTS networks.

Following in the footsteps of the Motorola Adventure V750 comes the new Barrage V860 push-to-talk device. The exterior of the Barrage is all rubberized and meets Military Specifications 810F to withstand rain, dust, being dropped, and can be submerged in water up to 1 meter for 30 minutes. It comes with a 2.2" 176x220 resolution internal display and supports music playback with external touch controls, microSDHC cards up to 16GB, VCast Music & Video, and VZ Navigator.

Lastly is the Motorola Entice W766, which replaces the W755. It is a budget flip-phone for those looking for basic device without a lot of unnecessary features. It comes in a black and silver body with a 2.2" internal display, 2MP camera, Bluetooth, microSD memory card slot, and supports VCast Music & Video, and VZ Navigator.

I am seriously thinking about it. HOPEFULLY Windows 6.5 is better than 6.1, I never heard anyhting good about 6.1

The only thing I am weary about is the fact that there is virtually no onboard storage and the fact that Marketplace will not allow apps to be stored on external memory cards. Only onboard storage.
