Motorola E790 - iTunes phone gets FCC approval!


Rumors about a Motorola phone which could play iTunes have been flowting around for a long time. We've already showed you some of the first pictures of the device, and we knew that it would be based on the popular E398 model, but will be in white housing and will be sold as Motorola E790. It will still feature the same display, design, camera and as the E398, but will have a new music key on its front. Motorola didn't announced it officially, but since the device got FCC approval we at least know for sure that is exists and its User Manual confirms that it is an iTunes phone! Another new thing about the E790 is that it will be a quad-band GSM phone (850/900/1800/1900 MHz), featuring both European 900/1800 MHz and US 850/1900 MHz bands and it will work on every GSM network. The manual also mentions EDGE indicator, allowing us to speculate that the E790 (unlike the E398) might even be EDGE capable.

Main specification:

  • Bar form factor, stereo speakers on the side
  • VGA built-in camera; Video Record supported
  • Trans-Flash (micro SD) card memory expansion
  • Bluetooth
  • iTunes support
  • Music dedicated key
