And right on the heels of the IPaq 6310 is this new looker from Motorola, which is barely half the size of the Ipaq, and has barely half the features. The box that it comes in is apparently from The Fucking Future.
Specs-wise the phone is decent, but not groundbreaking (you can check out a rather superfluous bit of animation here that attempts to outline some of the phone’s feature … a simple table would have sufficed, but I guess their in-house flash animators needed to earn their keep). Anyway, it’s really the paper-thin, anodized aluminum body that will sell this US$700-800 mobile, with the modest featureset being more of a bonus than anything else.
What’s interesting is that those busy bees at Moto also unveiled the mPx220 yesterday, which takes the opposite direction and chooses the Path of Conservative Body Design and a Shitload of Features instead. Specifications (thankfully, in a nice table form) can be had here, among many, many other phone sites.
I guess I’m still in a convergent sort of mood, but somehow that Razr only appeals to me on a very shallow, design-lust level. I can’t really see myself spending $800 on a device that doesn’t support stylus input or Wi-Fi, at the very least.
Sure looks mighty purty tho.
