Motorola launches MOTO U9 music phone

Mobile phones

Motorola has a new batch of handsets ready for the Christmas market, kicking off with the MOTO U9.

Music is the order of the day on this lightweight clamshell, with easy controls to flip from music player to phone and automatic pausing of your tunes when a call comes through. That music player is Windows Media 11, with support for WMA files, along with Janus DRM, MP3, AAC, AAC+ and AAC+ enhanced on the limited 25MB of in-board storage or via microSD up to 4GB.

There’s also CrystalTalk technology for better call clarity, advanced “speaker independent” voice recognition dialling, stereo Bluetooth, a two megapixel camera, video capture and push email. And in terms of styling, there’s a metallic gloss finish, ‘floating’ screensavers and touch sensitive keys.

The handset will be available before the turn of the year, pricing to be confirmed.
