The word we got from our friends over at Mototola Canada that this will “soon be available in Canada”. We are projecting by the end of Q1 2009 and this to be released with TELUS.
We have highlighted some key features below…. The description sent in to us says the “VE465 Active Edition, the newest addition to the Motorola rugged family, is for those for whom style is as important as durability. Outdoor enthusiasts and those who are just hard on their phone will find Active Edition the perfect solution. It sports a classic feel that is as eye- catching as it is solid, with features that keep you entertained and in touch. Take your tunes with you wherever you go. Store more music with up to 4 GB optional removable storage and use Full Speed USB technology for fast file transfers from your PC. And, use the 2.5 mm stereo headset jack to plug in your headphones and go. Two lighting modes make it super easy to see important functions on-the-go. Keys turn white in “media” mode and blue in “call” mode making it easy to read and respond. Turn Stereo Bluetooth® on and off, and play, pause or advance music without having to open the flip for an easy-to-use one-touch experience. The keypad is designed to make active dialing as easy as possible with raised keys.”
Also, the VE465 has 2 two color displays: internal is 1.9 inches (176 x 220 pixels) and external is 96 x 80 pixels. This also has a 1.3 megapixel camera that has video capabilities.
