A chunky flip phone and one of the last handsets with an external antenna, the Motorola V600 arrived at AT&T Wireless. It was a powerful device for its time with quad-band support for world roaming, GPRS, a VGA camera, Bluetooth, USB syncing, and MP3 ringtones. And it all came in a sturdy, metal-clad design. It was even fashionable enough to be included in the swag bag given to 2004 Oscar nominees.
Though mostly a no-nonsense model, the V600 could have an outlandish side as well. For $69 you could replace the metal border on the front face with a faceplate adorned with Swarovski crystals.
CNET review bottom line: The Motorola V600 has enough business-centric features and style options to satisfy the needs of most pros on the road.
