Our report from CES in Las Vegas. Hands-on with Cingular 3G phones, Moto ROKR E2, Sony Ericsson W810, new Samsung sliders, Pantech's new lineup, and more!
Motorola today unveiled the successor to the ROKR E1 iTunes Phone. The ROKR E2 packs new software and new features while addressing many of the complaints about the E1. The E2 runs on Motorola's new Linux-Java platform and has a 2" QVGA display, 1.3 MP camera with flash and a full size hot-swappable SD slot and USB 2.0 for fast file transfer. The phone has a 3.5 mm headset jack, full music playback controls on the side and new audio player software that supports MP3, AAC, WMA and Real. There is no iTunes software, nor the 100-song limit of the E1. In addition, the E2 offers an FM radio and Bluetooth with A2DP stereo audio support. Motorola is launching a whole line of Bluetooth headphones to complement the E2 and other new phones. The new ROKR is due out the first half of 2006.
