Two apparently very
similar handsets, the W208 and W210
(pictured) are low cost candy bar phones
with 128x128 pixel displays and built-in
FM radios. The W208 is reported as being
just 15mm thick. The W208 is a GSM phone,
the W210 is a CDMA version.
These are both very
basic phones - neither the W208 or W210
have Bluetooth, a camera or multimedia
player. Clearly aimed at the budget
market, the W208 and W210 do at least
look quite smart.
Motorola say that the
W208 and W210 should be available in
Q4 2006. The W208 will be available
in "Fire Red/Black Slate"
and "Silver Sail/ Black Slate"
The Motorola W375 is
Motorola's most advanced phone that
they've announced since the ROKR
E2 six months ago. But don't get
too excited.. the W375 is just a very
basic clamshell phone that's one step
up from the W220.
Inside the W375 is a
128x160 pixel TFT display, and on the
outside is a VGA resolution camera with
4X digital zoom. The W375 also has an
FM radio and has MP3 ringtones, but
it doesn't have Bluetooth or a multimedia
player. There's a WAP browser and speakerphone,
but no email client.
Available in a variety
of colours, the W375 does look to be
an attractive handset from the outside.
It measures 99x45x19mm and has 7.5 hours
talktime and up to 10 days standby time.
It's clearly designed
to offer good value for money, rather
than loads of technical features. Motorola
say that the W375 should be available
in Q4 2006.
