Motorola SLVR L9

 Motorola SLVR L9 Discontinued
27th February 2007

The last time that we saw a version of the SLVR was four months ago - the SLVR L7e was so uninspiring that we started to quote Nirvana songs. Well, Motorola have trotted out with yet another upgrade to the SLVR lineup, this time with the SLVR L9.

Just as the L7e was a warmed over version of the original L7, the L9 is simply the L7e reheated yet again.. and as anyone who knows about food will tell you, reheating the same food over and over again will eventually lead to something that will kill you.

Oh yes.. Motorola have spiced it up a bit with a new 2 megapixel camera, FM radio and a bit of KRZR-style gloss, but there's still the old 176x220 pixel display and the overall design that frankly has been around for far too long. Also, the SLVR L6 only has a slow USB 1.1 connection, so transferring music tracks directly to the phone will be a slow process.

It's not exactly the worst phone in the world, after all it does still have expandable memory, stereo Bluetooth and a fairly good media player, but there's no disguising that this particular dish has been served up too often.. and frankly it tastes kind of stale.

Motorola say that the SLVR L9 should be available from Q2 2007.
