I am curious as to the A-GPS.
Does the A-GPS and the MotoNAV service work inside the USA?

i found
this is corect?

Motoming A1600 also has a 3.2-megapixel camera with 8X zoom, which not only takes excellent stills but also has a DVD-quality video recording capability with video capture and video playback at 30 fps (frames per second).

Come on guys, I've read your opinions, maybe you like the iPhone, Nokia and others, but this is a great step for Motorola, I personally own the A1200r and I love it, I flashed countless times with different Linux softwares, installed games, applications, Skins (I even have one that makes it look like the iPhone)The A1600 with Wi-Fi, 3.2MP camera, and touch screen, and with this design they will rock! But don't believe me just watch how it's done :-)

If it's targeted for the Chinese market... that's a likely scenario isn't it ? Around the Olympic.
I wonder, will Lenovo starts pushing their handhelds also there :D

By the way, when's the Olympic game anyway ? Been out of touch with those kind of things for a while. July ?

1. Why can't they make normal flip phones? Ever heard of the V3 or the V8? How about the V9? Although they could innovate on the interface and icon design a bit, Moto's got the flip down pat.

2. CTIA's got info on the coming Z9 slider, but there was no news of either the 1800 or the 1600. I guess they want to unleash closer to the Olympics. Who knows?

3. I don't know what's taking so long, but Motorola better step on it... 'cause that Sony Ericcson P5 is about to tempt me to the dark side! 5... mega... pixel... Symbian...slick...pda... slider.... can't... hold out... much... MOTO!!!!!!

This is a good step for Motorola. i agree that many underestimate the power and beauty that is the Linux OS. It may not be up to par with Symbian, but it is open source and less prone to viruses. You can also modify its system files easily, even teens could do it. And what's more: Android OS is also based on the Linux kernel, so it will be the "appetizer" for the upcoming monster system Android.

awsome.. just that in that Linux should be a version for Skype ant IGO nav systems. That whould be A.W.S.O.M.E
