Pros Good design, easy to use interface, great sound quality
Cons SLOW transfer speed from computer.
Summary I just bought this phone today, and have been playing with it all afternoon. I have made a few calls with it, and the quality is excellent. Signal strength is also very good, miles better than my previous phone (panasonic gu87). Sound quality is excellent, easily as good as an ipod. The only problem is the very slow song transfer speeds (USB 1.1, and it shows). we are talking nearly a minute per song. and it doesn't take MP3s over 128 bpm, so they have to be converted before sending them to the phone. It isn't bad, but an iPod this ain't. All in all, a good phone. It does look a lot better in person than it does in the photos.
Pros iTunes, iTunes ringtones, holds up to 100 songs, Instant Messaging, Bluetooth technogoly, video and picture messaging, 3.77 ounces, rhythm lights, and Java apps for games.
Cons Wierd candy bar design, and that's it
Summary I know I'm going to love this phone. I have a Mac G5 desktop, and I have an iPod, so that works quite nicely. It works this simple:
1. You open up iTunes on your PC or Mac
2. Plug in your Motorola ROKR
3. Drag as many as 100 songs onto your ROKR
And another thing is, is that you can set those iTunes songs as ringtones. Plus a camera with flash and zoom, instant messaging, Bluetooth, and video and picture messaging. Besides the wierd shape of the phone, it's definetly going to be one of the best.
Pros itunes and a nice phone without an antenea
Cons i want an ipod nano cell phone...I wish!!!!
Summary I wanted to scroll wheel on the ipod but this will do nicely. I only want one device!!!! Not two. Convergence is the key. I love Apple now. Wow. It must have been a difficult business decision to make a better product so soon like the ipod nano and the motorola rokr but they did it even though the ipod mini would have sold for a few more years. What a great product line.
I love the upgradable memory on this phone. I will max out the memory but I only need a 100 songs for the day of using the phone.
I just bought the Ipod nano also. Man, is this thing amazing and light.
Pros iTunes can't be beat, listen to music on the go, proven service and phone manufacturer, and a camera to boot...
Cons What was that? 100 songs? Well, at least thats removable (upgradable) flash memory
Summary It's proven. iTunes is more popular than any other music service with more songs, and Podcasting. Talk on the phone, take a pic, listen to 100 songs...
100 songs? I personally wish there were more, but hey. It beats the MP3 players of the year 2000...
Overall, this phone is MY dream come true. Who knows more about digital music than Apple (this was a joint venture that included Apple), and who builds better phones than Motorola? Okay, some might say there are better companys than Motorola, but I'm wierd like that...
Pros Interface, nice bright screen
Cons Slow syncing
Summary Fits my needs: appointment and address info while I'm on the go, less stuff to manage when getting in and out of the car. I start my iTunes and go. Since the music automatically cuts off when I answer a call that's one less thing to do when taking a call while driving.
Great sound, display and ease of use -- easy to sync!
