Motorola's nearly unattainable AURA gets gobs of hands-on photos


When we hear "hands-on," we generally expect a smattering of images detailing the highlights -- you know, about as many as a fidgety PR person will allow, or about as many as one can take before they succumb to self-indulgence. In this "first look" ...

Motorola AURA: a halo effect


What exactly is the point in producing a $2000 phone when the economy is taking a nosedive? We ask if Motorola are just in it for the AURA's halo effect.

Motorola Aura


You're justified in expecting the Motorola Aura to be spectacular, and for the most part, it doesn't disappoint.

Troubled economy be damned, Motorola recently announced the latest in ultra high-end luxury phones with its super sexy Aura. Although it is reminiscent of the Motorola V70, this $2,000 cellular device has more in common with an expensive automobile...

Motorola AURA mobile phone


It's a stunning piece of industrial design, and Motorola's AURA is also the world's first mobile phone with a circular display. Described as a "high-t...

Superb design and craftsmanship, circular display with crisp and vivid colour, swivelling slider, 2GB internal memory

Lacks some basic features, poor keypad, slow UI, no 3G (or Wi-Fi or GPS or 3.5mm headphone jack), circular display

Motorola's AURA is a superb piece of industrial design. Unfortunately, it lacks even the most basic features, such as 3G connectivity. We love the circular display and the stainless-steel body. However, at the end of the day, if you pay over $3000 for...

Motorola AURA review


High of price, low of spec, Motorola's latest goes to extremes

Classy stainless steel body ; Swivel action ; Unique circular screen ; Top quality build

No 3G ; No Wi-Fi ; Standard 2-megapixel camera ; Very, very expensive

Motorola Aura mobile phone - First Look review


Credit crunch, what credit crunch? If you're one of the few thinking that I'm talking about a cereal bar rather than the economic downturn, then the Motorola Aura might be for you. But is it really worth the money? We got a quick hands on with the new...

Circular display, well built

Doesn't really do anything bar make calls, expensive

This might just be the shallow offering you've been looking for

Motorola Aura


Motorola dishes out a fashionable phone with a "fashionable" price to match.

Motorola Aura review


The Motorola Aura sports a basic 2-megapixel camera, a mediocre media player and a clunky user interface. But who cares? This handset is a stone-cold stunner

Gorgeous screen ; Groovy rotating cover with visible gears ; Etched stainless-steel body ; Weighty, quality feel

Clunky user interface ; No full-screen video playback ; Unpleasant Web browsing

It's not good for much besides making calls, but its stunning screen, stainless-steel body and rotating cover are certainly glamorous. If you have deep pockets and you're not worried about advanced features like surfing the Web, the Aura could be for you
