Motorola's ROKR E8 with magical keypad hits FCC

Chris Ziegler

We still don't have an official announcement from Motorola about this phone's existence -- much less a confirmation on pricing or availability 'round here -- but the bizarre ROKR E8 candybar has gotten just a little more real now that most of its FCC documentation has come off confidentiality. There's not a lot here that we didn't already know, but we're pleased to see the test reports make mention of both GSM 850 and 1900 (and decidedly less pleased to see an utter lack of 3G). We'd be lying if we didn't say we were pretty amped to get one of these in our hands, and with quadband EDGE on board, there's at least a fleeting chance that Motorola's US direct retail channel or a North American GSM carrier will launch it. Hey, we can dream, right?
