Motorola ROKR E1 Reviews

Motorola ROKR E1 reviews from across the web.

The Motorola ROKR E1 is the first mobile phone to be integrated with Apple Computer’s iTunes music player. It was launched on September 7, 2005 during a special media-only event by Apple in San Francisco, California. The phone had been widely expected, with technology sites reporting on collaborations between Motorola and Apple as far back as December 2004. – Wikipedia

The Motorola ROKR is the world’s first ever music phone featuring the Apple iTunes mobile music player allowing you to take your favorite playlists – featuring full length tracks – wherever you go in one convergence product at the touch of a single dedicated iTunes button. Advanced stereo and lighting technology offer amazing sound and delivers reactions you can see and feel. The Motorola ROKR will have you seamlessly grooving to a new beat! – Motorola ROKR News Release

With a distinctly mediocre screen and camera, the Motorola ROKR E1’s claim to fame is its iTunes support – yet it only stores 100 songs at a time and offers a bundled headset which is outperformed by its dual 3D stereo speakers. A user friendly menu system, extensive battery life and great keypad stand to counter these downsides, but the overall impression is nevertheless one of mediocrity. Still, although the handset cannot match the feature set of higher-end music phones, its lower price tag enables prospective buyers to purchase new earphones to get an overall experience close to the Sony Ericsson W550 in the mid-range.

Our biggest gripe with the phone is that the OS just feels sluggish. Typically at these events that can happen and the production model can be fine (because you’re usually looking at the phone many months before it comes out), but the phone is shipping now. We’ll be posting a video later today, once we fly back home, and you can see for yourself the speed.

WirelessNewsFactor‘ have reviewed the Motorola ROKR E1, heres what they have to say about the Motorola ROKR E1’s performance:

As a phone, the Motorola ROKR E1 boasts excellent reception, clear voice quality, and good volume. On the music side, the Motorola ROKR E1’s bundled earphones provide quality sound, and the integrated stereo speakers offer surprising clarity and volume. Lacking an equalizer, the Motorola ROKR E1 handles the mid- and high-range sounds rather well, but fails to deliver in the lows.
