T-mobile deal of the week

Motorola Rokr E8 for T-mobile – Unboxing

I was a little skeptical about this one but ok, I have to admit, Motorola actually did their homework on this one. The Motorola Rokr E8 really is a sight to look at. The phone commands attention with every sense of the word. Its sleek design follows Motorola’s classic sharpness while managing to define itself in a completely new concept separate from that of the Razr. The phone has a glossy finish that will drive “de-smug-ificators” (yeah, I made up that word, so what!) crazy. The overall feel of the phone is great. I love the weight and size of the phone overall. This phone truly looks and feels expensive, and it is! The OS is super quick and definitely deserves major props.

With specs that barley surpass the Razr, the Motorola W490 provides nothing on the inside for us to brag about. But hey, if your one of those people that loves to match your phone with your outfit, why not pick up a few W490s … [read full article]
