Three new Motorola clamshells
The Motorola U3 is very similar to the PEBL U6 but due to the now outdated specifications, will be positioned in the budget segment. Although not much is known about the features, we can see that the camera has only VGA resolution (0.3 megapixels) and it seems that there is no memory slot. The U3 will be available in two color versions: combination of black and red, called “Licorice” and in all-Pink, called “Rose”.
The Motorola ROKR W5 will deliver music for the masses. It resembles the budget models like the W510, but is colored in black-and-orange combination and has new ROKR label on the front. It is most probably a quad-band GSM/EDGE phone with 1.3 megapixel camera and microSD slot for memory. The screen shows a new music player that will rival Sony Ericsson’s “Walkman” player.
The third new phone is the Motorola i570 and as it can be seen from the model, it will used iDEN networks, which means that Sprint (Nextel) will most probably offer it if it comes to the States. As one can expect, it is rugged with stub antenna, but to look friendlier, Motorola has colored it in two-tone grey (light and dark) and with yellow trim around the external display and the side key. It will come to Telus (Canada) but we hope it will also find its way to the US market as well.
Motorola is also preparing an all-black variant of the Z8, which unlike the original won’t have the yellow-green elements.
