2004 Holiday Pre-Preview
V550 and V551 MPx and E1000
Motorola's next big mainstream push is their refresh of the "triplets" series. The original models - the V300, V500, V600, (and many spin-off variants,) have been extremely popular and played a major role in Motorola's recent rebound in market share.
The "refresh" adds video capture, more memory, and in some cases EDGE. Two such models were recently announced for Europe - the E550 and V550. Both models look similar to previous triplets models, just with different paint and finishes. The E550 has a black outer finish and is exclusive to T-Mobile Europe, while the V550 sports an eye-catching shimmering etched silver area on the outside. The two phones are otherwise the same.

For the U.S. market, Motorola will be coming out with the V551, which is the first model with an entirely new outer design since the original triplets. The V551 also adds two extra keys on the keypad, which can be linked to features like the camera and browser. Otherwise it's the same as the V550 and E550.
