MOTOROKR E8 to Make its Retail Premiere at T-Mobile USA on July 7
      #30553 - 06/26/08 09:46 AM

The highly anticipated ROKR E8 from Motorola is set to rock the U.S. with exclusive availability from T-Mobile USA, beginning July 7, 2008. Here is more info on the phone:


Summary of key ROKR E8 features:

-ModeShift technology transforms the device from phone to music player with the touch of a button
-Innovative haptics technology provides tactile response when a virtual key is pressed
-FastScroll navigation wheel allows for scrolling through thousands of songs with the slide of a thumb
-Patented CrystalTalk technology delivers outstanding call clarity even in noisy environments
-Windows Media Player 11 compatibility enables easy transfer of tunes from the PC to the device



Motorola designed ROKR E8 to deliver an uncompromised consumer experience for music or talk. Using breakthrough ModeShift technology from Motorola, the quad-band GPRS/EDGE device presents users with only the controls they need, at the time they need them, instantly transforming from music player to phone with the touch of a button.

When powered off, the surface of ROKR E8 is smooth, with no visible keys. Power on the device and it presents a virtual numbered keypad on the front surface. With one ?press? of the virtual music key, the phone keypad disappears and control keys for the music player ? play, pause, fast forward and rewind ? appear in its place.

Yet, ROKR E8 is more than just a ?touch?-operated device. Using innovative vibrating haptics technology, the device provides the tactile feedback consumers expect from a traditional keypad, providing confirmation they have pressed a virtual key.

ROKR E8 also marks the debut of the new FastScroll navigation wheel from Motorola, a variable-speed touch control that lets consumers easily scroll through all of the content stored on the device. With a gentle slide of the thumb, the wheel quickly scrolls through your music (music mode), contacts (phone mode), calendar (phone mode), or multimedia (imaging mode) content. Information is easily viewed on the landscape 2.0? QVGA display.

In music mode, ROKR E8 delivers great sound through a three-dimensional stereo feature that enhances two-channel audio and an on-board equalizer. Music can be enjoyed on the built-in speaker, with a compatible Bluetooth enabled stereo headset, or through a wired headset plugged into the 3.5mm jack.

ROKR E8 also helps consumers discover new music with a built-in FM radio and support for Song ID. The 2GB internal memory can store up to 1,500 songs, and the external memory is expandable up to 4GB with an optional microSD card. Music transfers quickly with USB 2.0. The device is compatible with Windows Media Player 11 on the PC, which also provides access to more than 200 online music stores.

In phone mode, ROKR E8 provides outstanding voice quality using Motorola CrystalTalk technology. The powerful device can receive calls while downloading or playing music1, text messaging, surfing the Web or taking pictures so you can constantly stay connected to those that matter most. Quality construction and materials help make ROKR E8 durable and reliable, and a high gloss front, aluminum soft touch back, spun metal side keys and engraved banding offer the modern style expected from Motorola.

Availability
ROKR E8 will be available beginning July 7, 2008 at select T-Mobile retail stores and online at www.t-mobile.com. For more information on ROKR E8, visit http://direct.motorola.com/hellomoto/rokre8/ or www.t-mobile.com.
