Motorola's latest ROKR phone faces the music in Phone Scoop's review. It may have great haptics, but does it have what it takes to impress audiophiles in the crowd?

A year ago, we would have praised the Motorola E8 ROKR as a fine update of its previous ROKRs. Alas, it is not 2007, but 2008 and we're deep into the music phone era, with iPhones, Instincts, Chocolates and others vying or your musical ear. As a result, our expectations for performance and functionality for a music-oriented cellphone have been raised considerably. The E8 has some fascinating technology and it is arguably the best music phone available except for you-know-what. But given the current music cellphone environment, a great deal will depend on the price T-Mobile sets for it.
Our complete coverage of CES in Las Vegas. Hands-on with Mirasol displays, plus new phones from LG, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, Neonode, UTStarcom, and OpenMoko.
Review: Motorola Moto Z2 Force
The Moto Z2 Force is a semi-rugged — and yet stylish — flagship smartphone from Motorola. This sleek handset boasts dual cameras, top specs, and a nearly unbreakable "ShatterShield" screen.
Review: Motorola Moto Z2 Play for Verizon Wireless
Motorola's latest Android smartphone is the mid-range and highly-capable Moto Z2 Play. This winsome handset may not stay strictly true to the original, but it is compatible with all of Motorola's Moto Mods accessories and still brings plenty to the table.
Review: Motorola Moto X Pure Edition
Motorola's 2015 flagship smartphone is a pleasing upgrade to last year's device, thanks to the bigger screen, better battery life, and improved camera. This handset offers a pure version of Google's Android platform with truly useful additions from Motorola.
Review: Motorola Moto E4 Plus
Motorola's latest budget handset is the battery-busting Moto E4 Plus. This phone has one of the longest-lasting batteries we've tested this year.
Wooo. I was raised on a farm, and those look like farmer's hands. I take it that PhoneScoop isn't your day job?
Welcome T-Mobile to the wonderful world of 2006
Any people wonder why Motorola is going of business and why T-Mobile has the fewest subscribers. Of course their CSI is awesome, they have the LOWEST subscriber base.
And I am a former T-Mobile high ARPU client who just recently bailed. I live in Los Angeles and their is not a HINT of ANY 3G love out here. Pathetic. I waited and waited.
HELIO done, Next up T-Mobile USA. I wish Rich and the original Eric would come back and bring some investigative journalism back to this site like they used to do.
Home of the Mets, Eric. What do I win?
Maybe you could handle the phone better if you took better care of you hands.
"Unfortunately, if you don't remember the "down" nav toggle gets you to your contact list, you have to scroll through the Shortcuts or Main Menu to get to the contact list itself, a multi-click operation"
Really? I don't even know what to say about that comment. That's just trying to find something negative to say.
