Review: Motorola ROKR E8
The E8 is an attractive and highly-functional alternative. It's half-touchscreen/half-dialpad hybrid makes control over all applications, including the phone, simpler than most multi-function multimedia phone, and has more internal memory than most phones so you can take plenty of music with you. But because it's an EDGE phone don't expect speedy Web service, it doesn't offer instant messaging, and the voice command didn't understand a word I said no matter how cleanly I spoke. And the lack of a music pause control on the headset is a glaring oversight for a music-centric phone. But if all you want is music on your cellphone, the E8 is alright.
