The Motorola E1070 is a 3G clamshell phone, on the surface similar to the Motorola V1050, although with an internal antenna and a higher resolution camera at 1.3 megapixels.

The unit pictured is branded to Italy's TIM network (Telecom Italia), however the documentation we have seen is in English, which possibly means that this isn't an exclusive TIM-only device.

We don't know all of the features in detail, but the Motorola E1070 is a 3G phone with video calling, expandable memory, Bluetooth and an MP3 and multimedia player, web browser and email client.

The screen size isn't clear. Although the V1050 and most other Motorola handsets have a 176x220 pixel resolution display, we feel that it's more likely that the E1070 comes with the same 240x320 pixel panel as the Motorola E1060 "bar" format phone. Presumably the E1070's memory is TransFlash too, in common with other Motorola devices.

It looks like a pretty reasonable handset, but the fact is that 3G phones like this are very common these days, and from what we know of the Motorola E1070, it doesn't distinguish itself in any way. What's worse for Motorola is that they haven't managed to get and 3G phones to market, and the upcoming E1060, E1120 and A1010 are not exceptional handsets when compared with the competition. Apart from the hugely successful RAZR, 2005 has been pretty poor for Motorola. Unfortunately, the E1070 isn't going to help Motorola's underlying problems of a lack of up-to-date and reliable handsets.
