T-Mobile picks up ROKR E8, sets launch

ROKR E8 launch date

T-Mobile on Thursday set the 7th of July as the launch date of its version of Motorola's ROKR E8 music phone. First seen at the 2008 CES show at the start of the year, the bar phone is unique in its dynamic touch-sensitive interface: different controls light up depending on the immediate context, with phone controls switching to camera or music controls as those programs become available. A similarly touch-sensitive wheel active in most apps helps users scroll through tracks quickly. Most controls are also haptic and vibrate to simulate a button press.

The quad-band GSM phone in T-Mobile form is virtually identical to the Motorola reference version with a two-megapixel camera, 2GB internal storage (expandable to 4GB through microSD), and an FM radio; the carrier gives the phone MyFaves calling plan support and is bundled with a 1GB microSD card preloaded with songs to get the user started on music. T-Mobile ships the phone for $200 when paired with a two-year plan but hasn't revealed the contract-free price.
