Motorola ROKR E8 has unique keyboard!
A Chinese webpage published the first images of a still not announced Motorola music phone. It is part of the ROKR series and under the model E8 but brings its own unique design which makes it stand out of the crowd. When looked by the side it resembles the Q9h by the slim profile but the front side is something totally new thanks to the strange keyboard. Instead of actual keys it has just “buds” over the flat surface and the characters must be illuminated to show. The even stranger fact is shown in the dark images – in standby mode there are the standard navigation keys and the numeric buttons but when the multimedia player is opened they hide and music-dedicated shortcuts are illuminated to attract the attention.

Although there is not much information on the E8, it seems the new Motorola phone will use Linux-Java OS (as the RAZR2 V8) optimized for the QVGA landscape display. The internal memory is 2GB (expandable via microSD card), the camera is 2-megapixels and it most probably supports Stereo Bluetooth. E8 has 3.5mm jack for stereo headphones and microUSB for charging and synchronization which in other Moto phones is also used for connecting the headphones.

We will publish additional information as soon as we have some. If you know something, feel free to share it with us!
