Motorola today announced the E895, the first phone to feature the manufacturer's new Java- and Linux-based OS and user interface. The next-generation OS is designed to be more powerful and easier to use than current smartphones. The E895 is a triband GSM clamshell phone with EDGE. It features a 1.3 MP camera with LED flash and video recording, QVGA display, a TransFlash slot, mp3 playback and Bluetooth- including support for stereo audio profile. It also features a full HTML browser and MotoSync Exchange ActiveSync as part of the new OS. The E895 is due out in Q4 2005.
When will it be available in North America???
only available in Asia???

1. the screen is amazing. it's incredibly sharp and bright. it's not much bigger than a razr screen but it's qvga.
2. the phone is much thinner than you'd expect. not razr thin, but it seems thinner than a v600 / v55x model.
3. it's handsome. moto finally are producing phones you'd be proud to carry.
4. the os is MAJORLY revamped. it's not just the same old moto magic os running on linux, ot a new verison of the old linux OS. motorola has honestly taken alot of steps to improved usability and clarity over what you see on current v-series phones.
we'll have det...
