Motorola ROKR E1 review: iTunes inside

 

Motorola ROKR E1 seems to be a new and quite progressive mobile. Well, it is not really new, as it has origin in the older E398 model, but it does brings a sure novelty: a direct cooperation with the iTunes program as well as with one of the world's...

Motorola and Apple started working together more than a year ago, in July 2004. The result of their cooperation was first presented at the CES fair at the beginning of this year. Soon afterwards, in the spring of 2005, we were shown the first pictures...

Motorola Rokr E1 (AT&T)

 

The display measures an ample 2.0 inches diagonally and supports 262,000 colors. Great for viewing photos and playing games, the display shines brighter than many Motorola screens we've seen; it's even readable in direct light. You can change the...

The Rokr benefits from solid call and music playback quality, and it comes with a speakerphone, Bluetooth, a bright display, user-friendly controls, and an integrated iTunes music player

The Rokr has a dull design, and it can't download songs wirelessly. It's also hampered by a small 100-song memory, limited Bluetooth functionality, a sluggish iTunes interface, slow music transfer speeds, and a low-resolution VGA camera

The Motorola Rokr E1 takes a step toward integrating a usable audio jukebox into a functional cell phone, but the 100-song limit and the slow processor performance will disappoint iPod users looking to carry a single do-it-all device.

The ROKR's treatment of iTunes, however, isn't up to iPod standards in several ways. The worst thing is the rude awakening you'll get if you try to connect your ROKR at both home and work: The ROKR pairs with only one computer. When we plugged the...

First phone with iTunes. Good call quality.function Video(mypage, myname, w, h, scroll) {var winl = (screen.width - w) / 2;var wint = (screen.height - h) / 2;winprops = 'height='+h+',width='+w+',top='+wint+',left='+winl+',scrollbars='+scroll+''win =...

Extremely slow music transfer. Somewhat clunky software. No other cutting-edge features ; See the Motorola ROKR E1 in Action

Although the first iTunes phone connects easily with PCs and Macs, the sad truth is that music transfers and the phone's interface both feel clumsy.

Review: ROKR E1 - Motorola's iTunes Phone

 

By now, with the negative reviews mostly over, the analysis stories are starting to appear, trying to understand how a phone this misguided came to be in the first place

And there are already rumors of a new, better iPod phone in the works. We can only hope Apple designs this one

But the ROKR doesn't have iPod style

They also produce a good, rich sound. We found it a pleasure to only have to carry one gadget with the ROKR, rather than two, and were impressed with how easy it is to switch between listening to music and making a call

Motorola ROKR E1 review

 

Thanks to the Apple hype machine, Motorola's ROKR E1 was one of the most anticipated mobile phones ever. After 18 months of speculation (ever since it was announced that iTunes would be coming to some Motorola...

The biggest thing the Motorola ROKR E1 has going for it is the carrier deal with Cingular. Feature wise it just doesn't innovate. Overall the device isn't polished, from a USB 1 connection to extremely slow performance. Using the ROKR made me...

Review: Motorola ROKR E1

 

Back on the 7th of September Motorola and Apple jointly introduced the new Motorola ROKR E1 - the world's first phone with iTunes support built-in. Based on the rock-solid E398, the E1 has a lot to offer.

First iTunes phone no smooth operator

 

The first iTunes phone misses the mark. With its slow syncing and response, artificial 100 track limit, audio anomalies, and occasionally ungainly interface, many who are accustomed to an iPod's elegance will be disappointed with this phone.

Decent range ; sound quality equal to an iPod ; support for multiple playlists

Dead-slow syncing ; poky interface ; artificial track limit ; reversed stereo channels

The ROKR is a candy bar-style, tri-band global GSM, Class 10 GPRS phone. Bearing a 176 x 220 pixel color TFT display, a camera for capturing stills and video, built-in "surround sound" speakers, and Bluetooth, the ROKR offers most of the functionality...

Product Specifications

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 offers amazing sound and delivers reactions you can see and feel. The Motorola ROKR will have you seamlessly grooving to a new beat!
