Motorola's first iTunes phone, the ROKR
E1 was frankly a bit of a flop, but Motorola
surprised many people by also including iTunes in the
much more interesting RAZR
V3i and SLVR
L7 indicating that perhaps there was going
to be a wide range of iTunes phones.
The next rumoured iTunes phone that
we know of is the Motorola ROKR E2, a much smoother
looking handset than the E1 with some technical improvements,
although we think it will still be a 2G phone - so no
3G iTunes handset just yet. It's expected to have a
megapixel class camera, micro SD memory, stereo Bluetooth
and possibly a QVGA display and a bigger song capacity
than the original device.
Quite when the ROKR E2 will hit the
stores - and exactly what it will look like - is a mystery.
The handset pictured is pretty close to what we believe
the production handset will look like, but it's quite
possible that we will see other ROKR handsets (including
a long-rumoured device with an iPod style rotator).
Don't expect to see an announcement
before Christmas though.. it's most likely that the
official announcement of the ROKR E2 will happen just
as the unit is ready to ship. An early announcement
of the ROKR E2 could well kill sales of the ROKR E1
at a crucial time of the year for sales.
