The Motorola ROKR E8 is headed to Rogers Wireless. Interestingly, it is only offered through Best Buy stores at this time.
The ROKR E8 comes with Motorola’s ModeShift technology which transforms the phone’s controls and number pad into music player controls at the touch of a button. Like that, unnecessary controls are easily removed when not required. When the ROKR E8 is turned off, both keypads disappear completely. Haptics technology provides tactile feedback when the virtual keys are pressed. It also features the FastScroll navigation wheel to easily navigate through thousands of songs and the patented CrystalTalk technology to provide clear calls even in noisy environments.
The ROKR E8 also comes with quad-band GMS/GPRS/EDGE connectivity, a 2-inch QVGA display, 2GB of internal memory, Bluetooth 2.0, a built-in FM radio, a 2MP camera with 8x zoom, a 3.5mm headphone jack and a microSD card slot.
With a three-year Rogers contract, the Motorola ROKR E8 will sell for CAD$149.99. Without a contract, the price goes up to CAD$334.99.
