Review: Motorola ic402
The ic402 from SprintNextel is a workaday phone. Its basic feature set, PTT capability, and semi-rugged styling belie its blue and gray collar roots. While it makes strides in being a more up-to-date and pocketable device compared to its older cousins, the ic402 is still an iDEN phone at its core.
For an iDEN phone, it's nice to have CDMA calling and data capabilities as well. The fact that the data radio can be configured and controlled is yet another indicator this this phone is intended to be a workhorse for the hard-hat set. When CDMA coverage is spotty, the ic402 falls back nicely on its PTT capabilities, which are helped by strong iDEN coverage. For a working man's phone, though, the low battery life could be an issue for some.
Phone Scoop reports from CES 2007 in Las Vegas, plus the Apple iPhone. New phones from Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, Nokia, LG and UTStarcom.
Motorola's newest flagship phone ticks all the standard boxes for a high-end phone, but it also has one totally unique feature: a wide-angle camera with a full 50 megapixel resolution, the same as the main camera. The selfie camera has a similarly unheard-of resolution at 60 megapixel.
Motorola has a new $500 phone and it's kind of a big deal. While Motorola has been successful with more affordable phones lately, not since 2017 have all of the big three US carriers offered a Motorola phone over $400.
Motorola has a new phone specifically for "business" folks. It's a high-end phone with a design inspired by Lenovo's ThinkPad laptops.

Apple has revealed the iPhone 15 series, which moves to a USB-C connector and brings several key features from last year's Pro models to the more-affordable standard models. These include the pill-shaped sensor cutout in the display that Apple calls Dynamic Island, a brighter display that can reach 2000 nits, a 48 megapixel main camera, and the A16 Bionic processor chip.
