We noticed on the Motorola Canada website that the MOTOROKR U9 is set to launch soon with Fido. This is a basic music flip phone that has a 2 megapixel camera. It’s compact at 90×48.6×16.4 mm and only weighs 87.5 grams, display is good enough size at 240×320 and has a microSD memory card slot, USB, Touch sensitive music keys, Downloadable wallpapers, screensavers, Calendar, Voice command, Voice memo.
In addition, Rogers will get the MOTOROKR E8 – a better music phone than the U9. The key to the MOTOROKR E8 is how easy it transfers from a phone to your music player by its touch screen controls… plus it is outright sexy. It has a 2MP camera with 2GB of internal memory and can hold up to 4GB of optional external memory, 3.5mm jack at the top for you headphones or Bluetooth.
More to come with a solid launch date… these might be completely overshadowed by the iPhone launch though.
