Hype?

This phone is anticipated heavily. I hope that it is worth it. i did not think the original Razr was all that, just a slim v551. It has 850, so you know Cingular will carry it. I wonder how much the price tag will be. Yeah, I know look matter, but this is a bar phone. Bar phones tend to be different when it comes to ergonomics. Hope it is worth the hype. Some say that it is worth its weight in gold or platinum.... How much is 3.03oz of gold/platinum worth these days anyway???

CCD Camera Phones

Were there any camera phones that use a CCD sensor rather than a CMOS?


All the megapixels in the world done mean a thing if the lens and the sensor are not high quality.


If you compare the MPX220 1.3 mp CMOS camera to the SE S710A 1.3 mp CCD camera there is no comparison.


Aside from the s710a are any other manufacturers planing on putting together a phone with a CCD camera to compete with the s710a?


The reason I ask is that I like all the features on the Sony-ericsson, but I do not like their interface. I may stand alone on this fact but I prefer the motorola interface, especially when it comes to their predictive text input and various menu navigation.

I am trying out the s710a for a few days and I have decided they...

Model name

Obviously, the RAZR is a name referring to it being "razor" thin. Is this one suppose to make us think it's a thin as a "sliver?" Or is it actually supposed to be "silver" (which doesn't make sense, as it's not silver-colored like the RAZR)?

Also, is there any relevance in the model numbers? Is there any inherent improvements or advantages of a v8, other than it's five more than a v3?

I think what is missing

That should have been reported were the small upstart companies.

I talked to some of the manufacturer reps and more than a few of them were impressed with the design and build qualities of some of the smaller Chinese and Korean venture groups.

One group that was really impressive at the show was NewGen with their really cool designs.

Under an inform discussion in the eating area, some of the these product managers feel that in the next 10 years, some of them (like Hop On, Bird, New Gen, Telson) maybe in the top 10 market and some of the older stalwarts in the world markets (like Alcatel, Philips, Siemens and Mitsubishi) may pull out as phones becomes total commodity items.

About "Cingular" on the F7200 screen...

Like I mentioned for reasons stated in the new Part 2, I complied with LG's request and covered up the carrier logo on the F7200 keypad.

I'm sure some of you also noticed that it said "Cingular" on the display, and I did not cover that up...

That was intentional. It was not an oversight, and is not any kind of "cheating" with LG's request.

The deal is... what a GSM phone says on the screen is not necessarily the carrier that brands and sells that phone. Depending on how the phone and/or SIM chip are configured, the name on the screen is usually that of the carrier that sold the SIM, or the current network the phone may be roaming on.

So the fact that it says "Cingular" on the screen means very little and doesn't necessarily gives...

Lack of Quad-Band GSM phones

I am always amazed that more carriers don't spend the extra money and make their GSM phones Quad-Band (850/900/1800/1900) instead of coming out with one or even two tri-band versions of the same phone.

I realize that very few people actually seek out quad-band phones, but if you're making the phone capable for three frequencies, why not four?

Perhaps the rest of the manufacturers know something that Motorola will not admit - that squeezing 4 radios in these compact phones affects RF performance.

Anyway I will continue to only purchase quad-band, as the last thing I want to do is get stuck wishing I had GSM 900 in Gabon or GSM 1800 in Trinidad. And you pretty much need 850/1900 here in the states. Oh well.

So what is it with Panasonic...

I just need some opinions. I was planning on saving up for the Panasonic X700 and have heard many excellent things about that phone but now I'm wondering if I should wait for the X800 to be released. It sounds the same but with internal atenna and no flash.
