Motorola ROKR E8 MusicPhone

( Laptop ) - Motorola just came out with a handset that hasn't gotten much fanfare, but deserves a look.

The ROKR E8 is a music focused phone with an excellent take on a keypad. The pad is context-sensitive, and the keys themselves change depending on the corresponding menu.

It's an excellent method if you're not into a touchscreen interface. The screen is a bit on the small side, but it's only for viewing, not for touching.

It has 2 GB of built-in flash storage, MicroSD support, carries an FM receiver, Bluetooth and USB 2.0 connectivity. You can listen via a 3.5 mm audio jack, and pictures can be taken on the two megapixel camera. The display is a paltry 2" QVGA display, although that's not as important on this phone.

Expect this phone in a November release at around 280 Euros. No word yet on world availability, but we'll keep you posted.
