usual, we can't divulge our super-secret source, but earlier this week we scored an exclusive hands-on session with the
Motorola ROKR E3 (at least, we think it's called the ROKR E3!). As you've probably noticed, this is the very same mystery phone
that was up on stage
for a few brief moments during Ed Zander's keynote at MotoNow last summer. Motorola hasn't officially announced this
phone yet, but we got further confirmation of its existence a few weeks ago when
reader Adam W discovered a ROKR E3 skin in Moto's phone tools
We're still trying to figure out some of the specs for this one -- it was easier for our source to get their
hands on the phone itself than on its spec sheet -- but near as we can tell the ROKR E3 is a GSM/GPRS/EDGE handset with
512MB of internal memory, Bluetooth, a 1.3 megapixel camera, a TransFlash memory card slot, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and
some multimedia software. No iTunes, and that round thing that looks like a scroll wheel is actually just four buttons
surrounding a run-of-the-mill joystick. Oh, and the keypad wasn't very easy to use either.
talk, on to the pics!
