New Music Phone for T-Mobile to Brag About (finally!)

Motorola Rokr E8

Wow, this summer is really the season for new, innovative, and often touchscreen, cell phones– iPhone 3G, LG Vu and Dare, Samsung Instinct… the list can go on (and can be read about here). However, one particular carrier is noticeably absent from that prestigious list: T-Mobile. Not to fear, though, the Motorola Rokr E8 is here– well on July 7 it will be, according to Cnet’s blog Crave— and its generating a lot of excitement; it already won top awards at the Consumer Electronics Show this year, including the People’s Voice award and best upcoming cell phone product (discussed by us earlier). But this phone is very different from the previous models we’ve discussed in the past for this summer…ITS NOT A TOUCHSCREEN! Yes, you heard me. Rather, this phone attempts to become the ultimate Music player Cell phone, or what we call the Mp3 phone for the sake of conciseness. Ever. Hit the more link for details!!

Another iPhone Competitor on AT&T?

Samsung Omnia

We all know that AT&T is the proud carrier of the iPhone, and also the iPhone competitor LG Vu, but now rumor is they are about to add another all touchscreen phone to their lineup. This new phone comes courtesy of Samsung, called the Samsung Omnia. And drum roll for the features which come courtesy of Boy Genius Report:

  • GPS with AT&T Navigator
  • AT&T Mobile TV (lets you watch live TV)
  • AT&T Music and Video
  • AT&T 3G
  • Mp3 Player with either 8 GB or 16 GB of memory built in (similar to iPhone 3G?)
  • 5 Megapixel Camera with Face Detection
  • 3.2 inch touchscreen
  • Windows Mobile 6.1

Rumors for release are this fall, but nothing has been made official yet, including the price for this latest touchscreen. So for those thinking about purchasing one of these new touchscreens which one will you get– this one, the Vu, iPhone 3G, switch to Verizon and get one of their new phones? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

LG Vu out today for ATT

Well taking a break from our zzzPhone reviews, here is something new for ATT- the LG Vu. Believe it or not this is an iPhone competitor on ATT’s own network as this phone is designed exactly like the iPhone in that it is pretty much all touch screen. I actually was able to see the phone in person and have to say it is very small, shiny and light, but still has a 3 inch touchscreen, 2 megapixel camera with video recording, music player, full internet browser, ATT Video Share, 3G (which the iPhone is missing), as well as the big feature- ability to watch live TV on ATT’s new Mobile TV service. Channels on this new Mobile TV service include ESPN, ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, CNN, and an ATT exclusive PIX movie channel, along with a few other channels. The Vu also got a higher rating than the iPhone from the editors at Cnet.com, coming in with an 8.3 rating compared to the iPhone’s 8.0.

LG Vu and iPhone

There will be 2 versions of the phone available- one with the TV and one without. Only the TV one came out today, and it costs $300 with the $100 mail in rebate, and if you want the TV service, that will add in an extra $15 a month in most cases. You can get the phone from your local ATT store or ATT’s mobile website.

Btw all you Verzion users- don’t worry you’ll supposedly have a similar phone in the LG Dare (all touchscreen with 3G, 3.2 megapixel camera, Mp3 player) this summer.
