Motorola V551 / V555

 Motorola V551 / V555 OpenDiscontinued
27th July 2004

The Motorola V551 and V555 are respectively American and European/Asian variants of the same phone. Pictured here is the V551, but as far as we can tell there will be very little difference between the models.

 Motorola V551 / V555 Closed The V551 looks instantly familiar to many people, following the design of the hugely successful V500 and V525 and the new V400p. The elegantly curved design has had a little makeover though, with the dimples replaced with an attractive two-tone shell, but other than that it's a distinctive Motorola design. Inside is the 176x220 pixel 65,000 colour display which is better than almost every other similar handset on the market. Underneath is a quad band phone with GPRS and EDGE for high-speed data. The V551/V555 supports Bluetooth too.

On the back is a fairly standard VGA-resolution camera, and also MMS, POP3/IMAP4 email, Java, PC synchronisation, hands-free speakerphone, polyphonic ringtones and the usual set of features you'd expect. The V551/V555 is probably closer in technical terms to the V600 than the V500 range, but it's famliar enough feature set for Motorola users and shows that this is a practical and attractive everyday phone with mass-market appeal.

Motorola say that this phone will be available in the third quarter of 2004. No prices as yet, but we estimate that the V551/V555 will have an unsubsidised launch price of about 500/300/$550.
