Extenal picture caller id?

Does this or any of the Motorola phones are going to come out with external picture caller id? I'm a Motorola fan and i know that S.E is coming out with the z500 which will have the external caller id. I don't want to get a sony ericsson i want a motorola but i need that feature..
I love the look of the razr v3 but would it have the external picture caller id?

New Phones in the market!

I've seen announcements and reviews about the new phones from Motorola coming this year and I was wondering when are these phones going to be available for Cingular Wireless and their prices; for example: the RAZR V3, the V551, and the V1000.
Also I would like to know if there are available for sale on the Motorola website (or when will they be available) or may be available through other carriers that offer GSM unlocked phones. Smile

Available?

Confused
Now I can see on the site that it says the phone isn't available yet. But is that just for the US market or for the entire world? I've got a guy claiming to have 10 of these phones right now for $380 each and he wants western union payment. I've come here since you're all the cell phone fanatics.

Am I right in saying this deal is too good to be true and that I'm probably going to get ripped off if I buy one?

Thanks in advance for the replies.

RAZR looks great BUT......

I wonder how the phone feels ergonomically? A phone that is wide and thin would not feel good in my hand for an extended period of time. Thats because the phone is too thin to rest in the palm of my hand, I would have to clamp it with two fingers. Not too pleasant if you have to hold it for like 30 mins at a time.

I hope the V3 is more than a styling exercise.

hey Rich

thanks for your very informative article, but did you get a chance to see the quality of the pics namely from the mpx220 and the a630? I heard the camera on the motov710 is so horrible people think RS have defected models...

thanks!

question for Rich

Hi,

I was wondering if you had heard any tentative release times on any of these models, or anything that's a little tighter in than what quarter they'll be in. I've heard that cingular's phasing out the v600 for the v551, this doesn't make sense to me. As far as I've heard the 551 is still pending FCC approval. It would make more sense (to me) to put the A630 in it's place and have that hold them over until the EDGE equipped 551 is approved, tested and released.

I'd also love to hear which, if any, of these phones have begun testing for potential carriers.

Any information you have is GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks a lot!

before you dehydrate from drooling over the V3...

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have this phone too. The size, materials, screen, and sharp looks are all great...

But's let's not kid ourselves - here's a few things it does NOT have:

1. MP3 Player
2. Expandable/removable memory
3. Headset jack (yes - I know it has Bluetooth - read on)
4. Decent battery life (Moto rated 2 hrs of talktime!?!?!?!)
5. A simple charging method - the mini-USB adaptor to power/charge the phone looks destined to be easily lost.

To me - this phone was clearly designed for LOOKS, not a moderate to heavy phone user. If you read the mobile-review.com review ( link is already posted several times on the message board), the battery life sucks on this thing. And the 1-2 hour talktime rating gets wors...

A780? EDGE/GPRS question?

Does anyone know if the phone will perform regular class 10 GPRS service when outside of an EDGE service area? Or do you just have no data services outside of the EDGE area?

a630 for TMo--surprised

I must say that I'm very surprised to see a TMo version of the a630. TMo never got the a388. If the US TMo stores get this a630, it'll definitely give the sidekick a run for its money. The sidekick is a great device, but it is still bulky. The a630 will be smaller in size and thinner. It'll give users the same functionality of the qwerty keyboard. This phone could be a big plus for TMo customers. Its about time TMo starts to get some high end phones. When I was a TMo customer, I had to purchase high end phones unlocked from overseas.

I'M NEW TO THIS -- & A LITTLE SLOW

signal meters

Rich-
Great report! Thanks for the details.
One thin I noticed on the A630 photos was the disparity between the signal levels. On the Cingular unit(it hurts me to say) the signal is much stronger.
Were the pics taken in NYC or Chicago?

great job

Very Happy First off VERY WONDERFUL JOB Rich!!!

I've been excited about the A630 for quite some time and this has definitely sealed the deal for me. When I head to Cingular that's most definately going to be what I grab.

It's nice to see the newer phones in a comparison to a phone that most of us have some experience with, the v600. It really puts things into perspective on the size of these models...especially with the V3.

Very good article overall, four stars. I can't speak for everyone, but I'm excited.

Can't wait to get my hands on my A630.

long range bluetooth?

this is the first I've heard of a long range bluetooth. Standard bluetooth is a 10m range, what's long range? Is this something that must be built in or can it be an upgrade as well? (my house has plaster walls and the 10m range drops to around 6 or 7 when I'm inside, so I'd love a stronger signal)

Wouldn't this make it a little easier to hack without being noticed? The low range of bluetooth as is makes it kinda tough to not be seen within 30 ft. of someone.
