More Phone News: Motorola Announces Two New W-Series Phones
      08/13/08 05:21 PM

Following the success of the Motorola Moto W755, Motorola today announced two new additions to the W-series phones, the Motorola W396 (flip phone) and the W388 (candy bar phone). Here is more info on both phones:


MOTOROLA W396

Tell the world you?ve arrived without saying a word. The handy W396 serves up both great mobile phone basics and a fantastic music experience, in a clamshell handset that you can show off with pride. Friendly features on the W396 such as long-lasting battery life, a mighty music player, VGA camera and Motorola?s proprietary CrystalTalk audio-enhancing technology gives you a dependable experience.



Everything to Stay Connected
The W396 goes beyond basic phone features with multiple ways to stay in touch and up to approximately nine hours of talk time. It can pack up to 750 text messages and 1000 phone contacts, and features an enhanced user interface, making it easy to create a text with one click. The W396 also offers Hinglish predictive text and regional support for seven African languages. Motorola?s CrystalTalk technology enhances each phone call by helping reduce background noises, so users can hear and be heard. The W396 also sports a VGA camera with a dedicated key, full view finder, 4x zoom and auto save to snap pictures on a whim and shared with friends via MMS.



It's Always Time for Music
The W396 proves its value even further with music features that keep consumers connected and entertained, including a dedicated music key. Consumers can make their ears dance with both an integrated digital audio player that supports MP3 and other popular formats, and an FM radio with RDS that can be played in stereo through headphones or on the W396?s internal speaker. Store favorite songs on optional removable microSD cards with up to 2GB of memory and download new songs over the air via quick GRPS speeds.
