Motorola Rokr Z6

 

The new Moto Rokr Z6 is the latest addition to the Motorola family, and is said to have "the next generation user interface and Linux operating system." The Z6 is one of the few Motorola phones in the market to feature its new Linux OS. Clearly with...

As a phone the Moto ROKR Z6 is a good one. For the price of Rs. 11,750 you get 1 GB memory along with the phone. The phone is stylish, is easy on the eye and has an easy interface. There isn't much you can complain about the phone, at least I couldn't....

Motorola Rokr Z6m (Alltel)

 

For quite some time we've been eager to review another cell phone from Motorola's Rokr series. After the first handset we examined, the Motorola Rokr E1, failed so miserably we were hoping that Motorola would redeem itself (not that it would take...

The Motorola Rokr Z6m has an attractive, easy-to-use design with a solid feature set. It's a good performer, too

The Motorola Rokr Z6m camera and music player lack high-end offerings. Also, it doesn't come with the necessary equipment for transferring music to the phone

The Motorola Rokr Z6m is a quality music phone for Alltel, but we wished it offered a few more features and came with additional extras in the box.

No, that's not a RIZR Z3. We take a good, long look at Moto's first Linux-Java phone for the US - with Video Tour.

Review: Motorola MOTOROKR Z6

 

A couple of years ago, Motorola promised a new platform of devices based on Linux. That time has come, and the new ROKR Z6 music phone shines thanks to its nifty new Linux powered UI that is both flexible and powerful - and at times, even talkative....

Solid new user interface, good music features, great display, it talks

Only average reception, poor low-light camera performance

Motorola MOTOROKR Z6

 

Packaged with a pair of Bluetooth stereo headphones, and providing access to Australian ARIA chart music, Motorola's MOTOROKR Z6 is certainly an excel...

Build quality, finish, speedy and slick looking user interface, bundled with S9 Bluetooth headset

It doesn't come with a 3.5mm headphone jack, an average performance from camera

The MOTOROKR Z6 corrects two of Motorola's biggest issues - user interface and speed - making it an excellent handset overall.

Preview: It used to be a diabolical iTunes phone - but now the ROKR has been reinvented as a Napster-friendly music mobile. Should the Walkman clan be worried?

Support for Windows DRM10. Good build quality. Easy to navigate

Fairly bog standard spec

Motorola Z6

 

Motorola Z6 is the second Motorola-branded slider, and generally, was not meant to exist. Actually, we should thank for this release the obscure state of affairs in the field of new products development, as having bet on creation of a new...

Should we go on comparing the two models, the Z6 has an obvious advantage thanks to its screen. The display is the same as that of the ROKR E2 which is in fact one of best matrixes around. It has Sharp matrix which now has become a synonym to quality...
