Motorola has apparently decided that the stripped-down, low-end market of the mobile phone industry was being neglected, and today they've announced a slew of new, totally regular handsets: the W156, W160, W206, W213, W165, W180, and W377. Just how regular are these things, you ask? Well, let's just say at least one of them actually has a black-and-white display. It seriously looks like Motorola had to clear out some backstock of old parts, but what do we know? Here's a breakdown of the new models and their "features" -- see if you can spot the trends:
