MWC 2008: Motorola handset round-up

Gadget Shows, Mobile phones, Mobile World Congress 2008

As Gary said when he did the product announcement for Motorola earlier in the week, “their heart’s not in it”. With just three handsets officially announced, we were decidedly unimpressed.

Z6W – a Wi-Fi version of the Z6, it supports all four GSM bands, and has a 2.0-megapixel camera and microSD slot. See details here.

W161 – very basic handset with black and white display and FM radio. Out Q1 2008. See details here.

W181 – 65k-colour display, FM radio. Out Q1 2008. See details here.
