Phone Features: MP3 player, 2 meg camera, and um... oops?
Poor form by Moto.
I mean I guess it is better than have bad EDGE but as long as EDGE has been around for them to not have it working well on their chipset is ridiculous.
I wonder though, could this have something to do with not wanting to have a US and European version of the handset since European handest don't have EDGE???
Wouldn't it have been nice to have Windows 95 actually work without a million and one patches and new versions?
