Motorola intros MOTOJEWEL
Earlier this week, Motorola's UK arm announced it would soon release the jewel-like styled MOTOJEWEL handset. The music phone will feture touch-sensitive keys on its outside control panel, which also displays basic phone information and animated screen savers. The specs are nothing to write home about, as the phone is largely meant to be a fashion accessory. Motorola even includes a small clutch purse with it meant to house the phone and a couple of accessories, ID and or credit cards. Stereo Bluetooth support allows wireless headsets to be used with the phone, and a 2.0-megapixel camera is built-in.
Windows Media Player 11 allows users to transfer their PC-based music to the MOTOJEWEL, while messaging is ensured with SMS, MMS, Wireless Village Instant Messaging (WVIM) and push email support.
Only available in the pictured midnight quartz color with a purple keypad, the phone will be available for a limited time in the UK starting this November exclusively through the Carphone Warehouse. Pricing information has not been announced.
