Motorola EM30: like the E8, but less cool

Chris Ziegler

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 America, specifically, since we have both 850 and 1900MHz here. The phone features Bluetooth, a 2 megapixel cam, and carries over the E8's trick keypad, but loses the touch sensitive scroll wheel in favor of a traditional four-way setup. Looks like it'll be available in red and gray, perfect for leaving your friends and colleagues squarely unimpressed with your choice in handsets.
