Motorola E690 Appears

American cellphone maker Motorola has recently expanded its successful, RAZR-inspired phone line to different formats, including the upcomping RIZR slider phone and the MOTOFONE F3 for the developing world. The company is set to introduce yet another format soon with the E690, details and photos of which have surfaced from a Chinese source. The E690 trades a built-in keypad for a large touchscreen that replaces most controls. All that remains are basic navigation buttons on the front and dedicated music controls on the side. The Linux-based phone is appropriately friendly to media playback and can play AAC, MP3, and WMA audio as well as 3GP and MP4 videos. A 2-megapixel camera is also standard. In China, the E690 connects to GSM-based networks and can transmit data through GPRS. Motorola will debut the phone in the Asian country during October; information about a North American version and release is still unknown. Click through for additional photos.
