A couple of months ago Motorola and Apple launched the ROKR E1 iTunes music phone and this week Motorola is showing off the ROKR E2 phone at CES 2006 in Las Vegas. However, there's an important difference. The ROKR E2 no longer supports Apple's iTunes but includes support for Motorola's new iRadio music service.

  • Dedicated music player buttons on the side (Play/Pause, Skip Forward/ Backward and Hold) and front
  • Full stereo audio via industry standard 3.5mm headset jack eliminating the need for adaptors
  • Optional hot swappable, SD mass storage memory card
