Motorola PEBL


How the heck do you open this thing?” My girlfriend tried to imitate my by-now well-practiced thumb-slide-pop maneuver to open the sleek clamshell Motorola PEBL from T-Mobile ($199.99 after rebates), but couldn't quite get the hang of it. In an...

Unique good looks; bright interior LCD screen; landline-like call quality

Low iPod Shuffle-like capacity; poor quality ear buds; exposed and vulnerable surface and screen

Despite PEBL's must-have good looks, you can find better equipped phones for much less money from T-Mobile...

Motorola PEBL


The camera is pretty standard for a camera phone. The PEBL has a VGA (640 x 480) resolution camera with a 4x zoom, with a video capability at 15 FPS. But, you aren't going to be blowing up and printing out these pictures to even a 4x6 without major...

Motorola PEBL


It's rugged and stylish. It's sleek and comfortable. In fact, the Motorola PEBL offered by T-Mobile has quickly become the second-most handsome thing in my house, behind only the cat (trust me, you don't want to upset the cat). The PEBL is the...

Great styling. Strong, sturdy design ; clear, bright screen ; sharply focused camera ; Cons: Slow user interface, can't connect to computer via USB without additional software

Slow user interface, can't connect to computer via USB without additional software

The PEBL's slow user interface might put off fast-paced buyers (though if you're OK with other recent Moto phones, the PEBL won't both you much). That said, the cool styling, variety of available colors, no-slip coating which keeps the phone safefly in...

Motorola PEBL


Floating through space, a meteorite collides with the atmosphere of a young Earth before the ravages of time. In a streak of fire it slams into the gr...

Excellent design, High quality screen, Top notch sound and pick up

Buttons a little inaccurate, Annoying game demos, No recurring alarm, Spring mechanism a little too hardcore

The Motorola PEBL is a very attractive phone and will add an air of sophistication to any user. However, there are some issues that need to be considered before making a purchase.

Sleek, stylish and easy to use - Motorola's PEBL reminds Riyad of what phones are actually for.

Motorola Pebl review


The Pebl is all about looks, not features. Motorola has made some sacrifices to get the Pebl's appearance just right -- the outer screen is monochrome, there's no ugly (but useful) jack for connecting wired headphones, and the side buttons have no...

Looks and feels stunning ; Good voice-control software ; Fine for voice calls

Poor camera ; Separate video and stills capture controls ; Short on internal memory ; No wired hands-free jack

The general size and shape of the Pebl means it lodged well in the smallest of pockets, making it an ideal 'travelling light' handset. Just don't expect state-of-the-art features from it

The PEBL mobile phone is designed to incorporate the smooth curves & organic lines of nature itself. There are no harsh edges in the design of the Motorola PEBL & it comes with a one touch easy to open glide mechanism. The phone comes in a slate grey...

Motorola PEBL


I've had the PEBL for about a year, until I jumped into the pool with it in my hand =/ Well up until that point it was a very reliable phone. Calls never failed, and I dropped it almost daily (it still looks new). The best part was the way it opened,...
