Motorola Motorola Rokr E8


The Rokr E8 excels at music playback, but usability issues plague it in other areas.

Slim, changes virtual interface at touch ; First-rate music player with Song ID app

Touch controls aren't always responsive ; Not great for messaging or email

Music playback excels, but in other areas, usability issues plague the Rokr E8.

Motorola ROKR E8


The Motorola ROKR E8 is a gorgeous phone whose software needs some polish.

Positively gorgeous. Excellent voice quality. Plenty of music options. Player works well.

Expensive. Uninspiring feature set.

Motorola Rokr E8 - (T-Mobile) review


We're always pleased when a cell phone for which we've waited a long time to see finally goes on sale. When Motorola introduced its Rokr E8 at CES 2008, we only had a few minutes to play with it, but we were so impressed that we gave it CNET's Best of...

The Motorola Rokr E8 has an attractive design with a brilliant display and an innovative keypad. Its music player is top-notch and it offers satisfying call quality and battery life.

The Motorola Rokr E8's navigation controls take acclimation and the phone is rather sluggish. It also lacks 3G, full e-mail, and wireless music downloads.

The Motorola Rokr E8 is a top choice for a T-Mobile music phone, if you can master the phone's novel, though slightly quirky, controls.

Motorola ROKR E8


This pricey but innovative music phone breaks the mold with its morphing design.

Beautiful and solid design, Keypad morphs to correspond with applications, Good music-playback quality, CrystalTalk technology cuts down on background noise

Awkward arc-shaped scroll wheel, Poor Web browser, Interface feels sluggish at times

When we turned on the phone, we were welcomed by the familiar T-Mobile home screen that features the five MyFaves icons, which you can designate as shortcuts for contacting friends and family. Inside the main menu are ten icons along the bottom of the...

Motorola ROKR E8


The Motorola Rokr E8 is more than just a slick looking cell phone; it's also a chameleon of sorts changing its visible exterior to suit the feature being used. When using the Rokr E8 to make calls or send texts the black casing lights up to look like,...

Motorola ROKR E8


If you have little interest in the Web on your mobile then the E8 is for you. It looks great and features a decent music player and camera. For the RRP of AU$450 including a bundled speaker kit, the E8 is a very sexy bargain.

Slim and sexy design, ModeShift keypad works a treat, 2GB of internal memory, 3.5mm headphone port

Super sluggish menu, No 3G or Wi-Fi

Despite Motorola's management issues and fiscal concerns, they certainly keep churning out quality phones. The Motorola ROKR E8 is a good one. A quick look at the ROKR E8 and you can see it has a specific music focus. It uses a virtual keypad that...

Motorola Rokr E8 Cell Phone Review


If you are a music aficionado, and you enjoy the ability to listen to your music on your mobile phone, then you're not alone. It seems that people shopping for cell phones these days basically require the phone to double as an MP3 player. Well, if...

The Motorola ROKR E8 comes in two colors, dark navy and platinum. The battery lasts up to 300 hours on stand-by; it provides up to five hours of talk time. It comes with a Li-Ion 970 mAh (BK60) standard battery

Motorola ROKR E8 for T-Mobile


Despite its high price tag and disappointing Web browser, this phone's dynamic keyboard, music-playing features, and intuitive interface make it worth the investment.

Slim, sturdy design; intuitive controls; responsive touchpad/keypad

Scroll wheel overly sensitive; camera lacks a flash; slow Web browsing on EDGE network

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how
