Damian, London Basic text and chat user

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
The phone has a superb speaker/ sound system and the display is very clear
Bad points:
Randomly has bad moods so turns off and locks itself without notice. Also, maybe I don't have the coordination, but the keypad is too sensitive and types characters that I brush over.

Manufacturer's Description

From talk to music in one touch, ROKR E8 features cutting-edge, easy-to-use controls that allow a smooth transition from phone to MP3 player to imaging device.

Transforming the Music Experience
Motorola designed ROKR E8 to deliver an uncompromised consumer experience for music or talk. Using breakthrough ModeShift technology from Motorola, the quad-band GPRS/EDGE device presents users with only the controls they need, at the time they need them, instantly transforming from music player to phone to imaging device with the touch of a button. Simply move a thumb across the FastScroll navigation wheel to search for music (music mode), contacts (phone mode), calendar (phone mode) and multimedia (imaging mode). A perfect blend of art and science, the face of the E8 is a sleek, seamless panel that features the first haptic touch pad from Motorola, which provides vibrating, tactile feedback when the user touches virtual buttons.

Liberate Your Music Library
ROKR E8 is designed for music. The device enables the ultimate freedom in loading songs from multiple sources and is compatible with standard connectors, software and accessories. Compatibility with Windows™ Media Player™ 11 on the PC allows users to easily transfer their favorite music onto the device, access to more than 200 online music stores and simple drag-and-drop organizing of songs, artists, albums and playlists. Discovering and downloading new music has never been easier with the ROKR E8’s built-in FM radio (optional 3.5mm headphones must be plugged in) and the Song ID feature that recognizes and displays tune information². Share music with friends over the built-in speaker, break free from wires with stereo Bluetooth® wireless technology³, or use a favorite set of standard stereo wired headphones using the 3.5 mm headset jack.
