Motorola officially unveiled their recently rumored devices to the wide public today. The Motorola RIZR Z8, Motorola SLVR L9, Motorola Q q9, Motorola Q gsm and the Motorola KRZR K3 are now officially presented at the Motorola stand at the 3GSM World Congress 2007 at the Fira de Barcelona. As GSMArena.com already wrote, the Motorola enthusiast will now be able to enjoy updated versions of their favorite mobiles.
The Symbian-based Motorola RIZR Z8 is an extreme slider with an unusual flexible construction. At 15.3 mm, it features a 2.2" 16M colors TFT display, a 2 megapixel camera with red eye reduction, stereo Bluetooth, a microSD memory card slot, 3G with video calls and most importantly, it's HSDPA-enabled. The Motorola RIZR Z8 is expected to hit the shelves in Q2 2007.
The Motorola SLVR L9 is an updated version of the SLVR L7/L7e. The new mobile retains the design and form factor but enjoys the added benefits of a FM radio and a 2 megapixel camera. The mobile has also received the mirror-like finish of the Motorola KRZR K1. Motorola SLVR L9 is expected to be available in Q2 2007.
Speaking of KRZR K1, today's show saw the announcement of its successor - the spanking new Motorola KRZR K3. The updates to the KRZR vary from small such as the addition of stereo Bluetooth or increased internal memory size to substantial - the KRZR K3 has not only 3G support with video calls but it also is HSDPA-enabled. The MOTOKRZR K3 is expected to be available in Q1 2007.
The Motorola Q gsm was finally made available today. It was announced so long ago that we started to wonder if it will be ever really produced. Speaking of messangers, the more interesting part though is the Motorola q9. Based on the latest Windows Mobile 6, this HSDPA-enabled messenger features a QWERTY keyboard, a 2 megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, a microSD memory card slot - and all that at a thickness of only 11.8 mm. The Motorola MOTOQ q9 is expected to be available in Q2 of 2007.
The Motorola W510 is a budget version of the popular Motorola KRZR. Stylish and fashionable, the W510 clamshell features a 1.3 megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, a microSD memory card slot and speaker independent voice dialing.
The Motorola W205 is a classic bar-shaped talk-and-text phone with no frills. The 500 contact positions and 750 positions are more than enough. Itís equipped with a 65K colors CSTN display and has a compact size and shape. The Motorola W205 is expected to be available in Q1 2007.
And in the end Motorola W215 is a lower end snapshot mobile with a VGA camera, a 65K colors TFT display with a resolution of 128x128 pixels and a FM radio. The W215 is expected to be available in Q1 2007.
