The Motorola ROKR E8 is a much needed return to form for Motorola after seemingly not producing a decent, stand out mobile phone since the original v3 Razr. The E8 is a dedicated music phone with cutting-edge, easy-to-use controls that allow a smooth transition from phone to MP3 player to imaging device. Motorola’s breakthrough ModeShift technology presents you with the only the controls you need, at the time you need them, instantly transforming from music player to phone to imaging device with the touch of a button.

The face of the ROKR E8 is a sleek, seamless panel that features the first haptic touch pad from Motorola, which provides vibrating, tactile feedback when you touch the virtual buttons. It’s light too, just 100g and 10.6mm thin. Primarily a music phone, the device lets you load songs from multiple sources and is compatible with standard connectors, software and accessories.
There’s 2GB of memory, which can be expanded to 4GB using a microSD card. The ROKR E8 also has a built-in FM radio, a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, a 2 megapixel camera and a full HTML web browser.
