ZDNet had a first look of Motorola's new clamshell Smartphone which will use Microsoft's Smartphone 2002 OS and and will released on Orange's network later this fall:

Motorola, Orange and Microsoft have unveiled a new phone running Windows Mobile 2002 for Smartphones. This is not the anticipated update of Microsoft's Smartphone platform, but a slightly tweaked version of the software we've previously seen in the two incarnations of Orange's SPV.

The key physical feature that makes Mototola's MPx200 different from the SPV is its clamshell design. The MPx200 has a 176-by-220-pixel 16-bit colour screen, plus an LED on the outside. The standard internal arrangement of a combined navigation and activation button plus softkeys is not surprising. However, the phone is small and light (48mm by 89mm by 27mm and 113g), and with a 200MHz processor it's expected to be an efficient device. Ten megabytes of the 32MB of Flash ROM is available for the user, and there's an easily accessible SD card slot that supports SDIO. The MPx200 will ship with a 16MB SD card.

Read the complete preview at ZDNet UK.

to input text is difficult, you have to press key three times to type 'c'.

I have played with it, and even written some application for it. It is really great. better than Pocket PC and Palm PDA.

I have seen the product its brilliant. Its not too big to carry like the other PDA's. lot of features & its powerful.

I'd rather *not* have to reboot my phone every day, just like I have to reboot my pc and pocket pc all the time

does it comes with an anti-virus?

How will privacy issues be dealt with? Spam phone calls, banner advertisements, telemarketers, porn etc on my cell phone?

That's intriguing... 

On one hand, I'm curious to see about service packs and the potential for phone BSODs...

On the other,  when will Nokia be offering a phone with linux?

This phone is great but i will reather wait for the Motorola A760 a much better phone powered by Linux  http://.../   

Check it out it's Great!!!

Is there is any CTRL+ALT+DEL somewhere on the phone ?

Posted by Want one solution on 26.09.03 - 19:11:16

Needs BlackBerry-like keyboard, touch screen, or some better form of data entry to replace my PDA. Otherwise I'm still carrying both and what's the point?

Posted by Piotrek Michalak on 04.10.03 - 09:33:52

One question.  Whare is the Camera in this phone ?

And one more. Why MPx200 don't have character recognizer and you are not able to draw on it.
