There's about 16-20 MB of usable space on the phone, but it does have a memory card slot, so I'm sure you can record a ton of voice memos on a 1+ GB micro SD card. It does limit each memo to 60 sec though. And they can be saved on a PC or Mac using th... (continues)

The phone looks and feels a sturdier than the U540. It's definitely not a WOW phone but it's a good size, seems to offer some good features and it looks very user friendly. This new user interface is also on the upcoming Motorola W755. Hopefully this trend of opening up the interfaces continues.
