Motorola ROKR E8

The recently released Motorola ROKR E8 should grab anyone's attention who likes to use their mobile phone as a music player.

The ROKR E8 is designed for music. It features ModeShift technology that allow a smooth transition from phone to MP3 player to imaging device at the touch of a button. Another main feature of the user interface is the FastScroll navigation wheel which allows for for scrolling through songs, contacts and the image library with the slide of a thumb.

Now is probably a good time to mention that the ROKR E8 is the first phone from Motorola to feature a haptic touch pad, providing a vibrating tactile feedback when the user touches the virtual buttons. Many people would argue that the ROKR E8 earns a few points over the iPhone in this respect. I have already heard of people who are selling their iPhones due to the lack of tactile feel that they are used to from the keypad on their previous phones.

The Motorola ROKR E8 is also compatible with Windows Media Player 11 on the PC, which allows users to easlily transfer music onto the device, simple drag-and-drop organizing of songs, artists, albums, playlists and access to more than 200 online music stores.
