After revolutionizing the stylish mobile phone genre with the slick and slim RAZR, Motorola's latest PEBL is almost exactly the opposit

Motorola RAZR maxx V6 review: HSDPA flip take two


Motorola keeps reusing its trustworthy old RAZR V3 design in almost all of its current models. Probably most of the users will agree that this is not a bad thing at all, as those are one of the finest, most beautiful phones on the market. RAZR maxx V6...

Large display ; Touch sensitive buttons for music controls ; HSDPA support (3.5G) ; GPRS and EDGE, both Class 10 ; Bluetooth with A2DP profile (for stereo headset) ; microSD card slot ; 2 megapixel camera ; Video calls camera ; Pleasant light effects...

Touch sensitive keys are hard to use ; No FM radio

The phone's plastic and metal construction is very nice and solid. It did not produce and creaks or plays and its clamshell closing mechanism works just perfect with a very recognizable sound when you close the flip. As in most of the cases with...

Motorola U6 PEBL Unlocked GSM Cell Phone (Green)


Motorola is on a hot streak. From its fashionable Razr to its iTunes-friendly Slvr to its productivity-geared Q, the company has produced one groundbreaking phone after another. The Pebl isn't groundbreaking, but it is a smart-looking phone for anyone...

Impressive, slick design ; Works well for voice calls

Tricky interface ; Poor choice for data hounds

Though the Pebl lacks some bells and whistles, this standard cell phone is fun to use and looks good, too.

Motorola PEBL U6 & RAZR V3i review: Fashionable duo


The RAZR successor the Motorola V3i strives for continuing the legend its predecessor set the beginning of. Motorola has also another highly stylish clamshell, PEBL U6, which has a lot in common with the RAZR models and attracts attention equally well.

Original oval design ; Rubber" surface ; Automatic opening ; Outer monochromatic display ; Top-class TFT main display with 262K colors ; Plain keypad made of glossy metal ; Email client ; Built-in VGA camera ; Bluetooth

Increased weight ; Keypad surface catches fingerprints ; Poor touch orientation on the keypad ; Limited internal memory of 5.8MB with no card slot ; Illogic distribution of menu items

Motorola PEBL U6 is not any phone; it resembles a true pebble. The handset attracts one's attention not only with its untraditional design, but also with its material, which feels like hard rubber. Motorola PEBL U6 is so stylish that it could hardly...

Motorola Pebl U6 (orange, T-Mobile)


On the front of the mobile, you'll notice a unique vertical external display that shows the time, battery life, signal strength, and caller ID (where available). Though it's monochrome and a bit small, the rectangular shape complements the phone's...

The Motorola Pebl has a sexy design and comes with Bluetooth, a speakerphone, world phone support, and solid call quality

The Motorola Pebl has a low-resolution camera, it flips open when dropped, and it suffers from tricky and smudgy controls

Undeniably attractive, the Motorola Pebl offers great performance and an acceptable--if not high-end--range of features. Just make sure you give the controls a test-drive.

Motorola U6 PEBL


Service Provider: T-Mobile, Camera: Yes

Beautiful. Speaker-independent voice dialing. Good battery life.

Screen and keypad attract fingerprints. Flips open when dropped.

It's not the most feature-laden phone, but it's one of the prettiest. The PEBL is another design triumph from Motorola.

A little time spent with the Motorola PEBL V6


It may not be the most ultimately feature equipped cellie due to strike the market, but few around the office wouldn't give a pint or two of bodily fluids to spend a weekend alone with the PEBL V6 (and its thankfully photogenic new matte black body),...

Motorola PEBL U6


Where the RAZR is angular, the PEBL is round, thicker (1.9 by 3.4 by 0.8 inches) and slightly heavier (3.8 ounces). It's more of a purse phone than a pocket phone. You open it by placing your thumb on the Motorola logo and moving it slightly forward;...

Snapshot: Motorola MOTORAZR maxx


Shown today at the Motorola Financial Analysts Meeting, or FAM, the new MOTORAZR maxx is a thin profile replacement for the RAZR V3x. In addition to being thinner, the new maxx also gets new support for HSDPA, EDGE, and Bluetooth v2.0+EDR.

Review: Motorola PEBL U6


Motorola and T-Mobile just launched the PEBL U6 in bright new colors, and now we have the hands on review. The PEBL's design is very unique, with its soft curves and spring powered hinge. It also works well as a phone. Go figure.

Unique design, solid performance, speaker independent voice dialing

Low resolution camera, no email client, no EDGE support
