Motorola ROKR EM30


The Motorola EM30 is the successor of the ROKR E8. The EM30 features a 2.2-inch LCD screen, stereo speakers, a built-in 2.0-megapixel digital camera without flash or autofocus features, and 2GB of memory.

Affordable; cool modeShift technology; supports lots of music format, standard audio jack

Bad keypad design, poor camera

And at RM899 it certainly won't burn a big hole in your wallet.

Motorola ROKR EM30


A younger sibling of the MotoROKR E8, the EM30 tries to pack in good features that aren't heavy on the wallet.

Sleek and youthful design, 3.5mm earphone jack, Decent audio quality and battery life, Well thought out User Interface (UI), Well priced

Sluggish UI, Buttons are not ergonomic, Inadequate volume level via the bundled earphones

Motorola ROKR Black/white unlocked GSM bar phone with 2MP camera (EM30)


for $99, you can't find a better phone, GET IT

Solid, Many features, Supports 8 Gb of memory, 3.5mm headphone plug, looks cool, screen is really clear (high res)

buttons, are sometimes hard to press, only one theme, NOTE: MY PHONE WASN'T NEW, IT WAS AN OPEN BOX AND CAME WITHOUT THE HEADPHONES (it was supposed to be new), but since i liked it, I didn't return it, but, still, sucks
