    Fantastic features really would be great phone the only problem is what is that back track touch does it means the the wntite navigation will be done from the back side of the phone if yhe factor is like this then it will not be accepted by Indian marke. If it would have been a compleye touch screen with and quarty and the same form factor. It will rule the market motorola are u listening….

  • Anbu John Boban November 27, 2010 6:41 pm

    there is docomo and airtel who provide much more good services at India . why did they chose aircel ? if anyone browses internet via mobile . it says internal server error and one of the worst gprs services at India . They are stating they are providing gprs at 98 in the other hand gprs provided by videocon at 96 is really affordable and the speeds are more than 100kbps.

    If standby time in 3g is 334hrs, the standby time in 2g can’t be 267hrs. It must be greater than 334hrs. Bafna, please clarify this.

    According the the Tech Specs for this device by Motorola its correct wt we published here.
