- the recent music-centered proposal by Motorola. It has a unique touch-sensitive keypad and the so called "Omega wheel", which sounds like a truly remarkable navigational solution. The keypad is quoted to support Haptic feedback, allowing the user to actually feel every keypress. The built-in memory is 2GB and is expandable through a microSD card slot, which supports memory cards of up to 4GB capacity. Among the other more exiting features are the very slim design (standing at 115 x 53 x 10.6 mm with a volume of less than 60cc), Frequency Modulation (FM) radio, Bluetooth, Universal Serial Bus (USB) v2.0 and the 3.5mm audio jack. A two megapixel capturing camera and the 2" 262K color QVideo Graphics Array (VGA) display are adding to the tally. The bar-shaped device will be quad-band and General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) and EDGE enabled. MOTOROKR E8 is expected to hit the shelves in November at a projected retail price of 280 Euro.

MOTORIZR Z10 is another smartphone with the kick-slider design Motorola introduced with the MOTORIZR Z8. It means the phone is equipped with a sliding mechanism that bends the phone for better ergonomics. MOTORIZR Z10 will have a 2.2" 16M color QVideo Graphics Array (VGA) display with scratch-resistant glass and a 3.2 Megapixel capturing camera with autofocus and Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash. The capturing camera is assumed to capture video in QVideo Graphics Array (VGA) resolution at 30 fps. The device is particularly loaded in terms of network connectivity - it supports quad-band GPRS, EDGE and dual-band HSDPA. The Operating System (OS) here is Symbian UIQ 3.1, just like in Z8. MOTORIZR Z10 will most likely be available in December at an expected retail price of 400 Euro before taxes.
