Every March, the electronic music industry converges on Miami Beach for the Winter Music Conference and Miami Music and Multimedia, otherwise known as M3. Every night for a whole week, dozens of massive parties take place all over the city, filled with the sounds of the hottest DJs in the world.
This year, the event made a fitting backdrop for Motorola to launch their new E725 music phone.
The E725 is a CDMA phone for North America. Among its key features are EV-DO high-speed data and the BREW platform for applications and games. Although Motorola can't officially say which carrier might offer it, Verizon is the only major carrier at the moment with that combination of technologies.
Although the E725 is a respectable phone for most any purpose, the focus is on music. Like most new higher-end phones these days, it sports a memory card slot (miniSD) for storing large numbers of music files. An FM radio and built-in stereo speakers are also part of the package.
If that were all there was to it, it wouldn't be much different from several phones announced last week at the CTIA show. But where the E725 goes the extra mile are with features like the 3.5mm headset jack and FM transmitter.
While most phones these days have small 2.5mm jacks that only work with cell-phone headsets, the full-size 3.5mm jack on the E725 lets you jam with a full set of stereo headphones.
But the most unique feature of the E725 is definitely the FM transmitter. FM radio receivers are nothing new, (and the E725 has one of those, too,) but the E725 also lets you broadcast MP3s in stereo to a nearby FM radio - perfect for pumping tunes through a car stereo system.
The music player application on the E725 is implemented as a BREW application. This means it can easily be customized by carriers to integrate with their own over-the-air music download services. The EV-DO data capability ensures songs will download quickly.
