The Motorola V600 comes with WAP 2.0 web browser with xHTML support. Class 10 (4d+2u) GPRS is supported for fast data transfers.


Multimedia

Camera, sounds and video are all accessible from this menu. Lets begin with the built-in VGA (640 x 480 pixels) camera. The quality is hands down very disappointing. The pictures had very low contrast, very color inaccurate with very noticeable compression artifacts. So far the pictures produced with Nokia 3650 are the best I've seen. On the positive side the software allows you to change the brightness and should have a software zoom which I could not activate for some reason.

The V600 I had  came with 1 theme preinstalled. Additional can be downloaded. Changing the theme customized the screen saver, wallpaper and the ringing sounds.

The V600 is capable of 24 voice polyphonic ringing. There are many pre-installed and additional can be downloaded. In case you feel artistic enough and want to create your own – you can thanks to the MotoMixer. After selecting a base melody you can control sax, piano, drums and the bass and insert them over the base melody.

Even though the phone's software will not allow you to capture video, strangely enough the phone can play videos – pretty much a marketing gimmick (in my opinion) so the sale people can show you (and make you buy the phone) how advanced the device is. I am not saying it is bad features, but the total phone memory is only 5 mb and no memory expansion slot is present so forget about watching a movie longer then a few seconds.
