Why the Motorola ROKR iTunes phone doesn't rock

Posted on Monday, September 12 2005 @ 15:30:03 CEST by

On Wednesday the iTunes phone was finally unveiled by Steve Jobs in San Francisco. The phone was developed by Motorola and is called ROKR E1. It has a RAZR like design and can only hold 100 songs because it is equipped with only 512MB microSD flash memory.
Those who have used the Rokr say it's quite a good phone (with a camera, Bluetooth, speaker, voice dialling and reasonable battery life) but nothing special. And the (Motorola-designed) software is as uninspiring as that of the Razr. (Why is it that Nokia is apparently still the only company capable of designing an intuitive user interface for telephony?)

The music-player module works like an iPod - though it lacks the clickwheel that makes its big brothers function so slickly. But overall, the impression is distinctly underwhelming. The word on the streets is that far from being the revolutionary device that will bring about media 'convergence', the Rokr is, well, just the sum of its parts..
