Sony Ericsson's Paris wasn't the only perfectly good handset to go down with the sinking UIQ ship, it seems. Remember that TEXEL from back in the day? Yeah, well, it's reemerged more than a year later -- a year too late, may we add -- supposedly branded the ROKR E10, which would fall in line with t

Not to be upstaged by Nokia's never ending stream of goodies today -- well, honestly, nothing's going to stop that -- Motorola has seen fit to push out a new music-centric device dubbed the ROKR EM35. On the sonic front, it packs audio-enhancing CrystalTalk (which features two microphones to help f

Unless our eyes are doing some remarkable deceiving (and trust us, they've been known to work unwanted miracles before), this here ROKR EM35 is a colored version of the VE66 we spotted late last month. Very, very little details are given -- just that it's rockin' a 320 x 240 resolution display, a 3

Just like the press shots had us thinking, Motorola's ROKR EM30 really is nothing more (and nothing less) than a dumbed-down E8. Oh, and don't be alarmed by the utter blackness you're presented with below the d-pad -- the EM30 carries over the E8's \"ModeShift\" morphing keypad, so it does some cool

Moving just a tad downmarket from the mighty morphin' E8, Moto has rolled out three new members of its music-centric ROKR series today: the EM25 slider, EM28 flip, and EM30 candybar. The EM30 probably feels the most familiar, aping the E8's design language but trashing the touch-sensitive wheel for

If, for whatever reason, you found yourself recently craving a Motorola U9 in gunmetal grey, today would be your lucky day -- assuming you live in the US and don't mind handing your credit card information over to the company's humorously labeled MOTOSTORE. The diminutive mobile, which includes 25M

Alright, Rogers customers, stop your poutin' that your friends south of the border on T-Mobile got the ROKR E8 and you didn't -- because yeah, now you guys have it too. Best Buy is now offering the E8 on Rogers for $149.99 CAD (about $147) on one of those crazy three-year deals, and since local sto

As expected, T-Mobile has taken the wraps off its very own version of Motorola's ROKR E8, a glossy black candybar offering a 2 megapixel camera, 2GB of internal storage (plus a microSD slot that'll swallow up to 8GB more), stereo Bluetooth, 3.5mm headphone jack, FM radio, and that so-called \"morphi

We know that T-Mobile has signed on to pick up the MOTOROKR E8, and last we'd heard it might be dropping some time between... oh, now and August. MobileBurn is now reporting that the music-friendly candybar is slated for announcement tomorrow, though it's not clear whether it'd be available immedia

Like it or not, the combination of high-function media players with high-function cellphones is officially an inevitability (just ask Apple). It seems like every day a new handset's being announced with that obligatory 3.5mm headphone jack on board, one of the final pieces of the puzzle that had pr

We'll plainly admit, going into this hands-on, we didn't think much of Motorola's ROKR EQ5 -- or the whole concept of a portable A2DP speaker, for that matter. Stereo Bluetooth has a nasty habit of detuning audio quality just enough to make it noticeable for folks that are paying close attention to

A fresh FCC filing indicates that Motorola's prepping what we can only assume to be a lower-cost alternative to the ROKR E8, the so-called EM30. This particular device wasn't mentioned in Moto's leaked '08 lineup for Asia, suggesting that we might just see the GSM / EDGE device elsewhere -- North A

TmoNews has published a laundry list of devices that it says will launch between June 16 and August 1 -- 13, to be exact, with another three that aren't listed. That's a positively Japan-esque release pace, a breakneck schedule that we're having a hard time believing. To its credit, several launche

Quick: Motorola launches a music phone with a heap of internal memory, quadband GSM / EDGE, and no 3G. What American carrier is most likely to show some interest in picking up something like that? That's right: we've stumbled across shots of the ROKR E8, in all its mighty morphin' glory, bearing T-

That alleged leak of Moto's 2008 lineup last year in Amsterdam is looking more and more legit pretty much by the minute. First, we got a glimpse of what appears to be the Skarven -- a phone that'll probably become the Z12 kick slider at retail -- a few days ago, and now an alleged shot of the TEXEL
