Motorola go all V70 on us with the Aura

Motorola today announced the new Motorola Aura handset which many people would agree is a complete redo of the good old V70 which was popular back in 2002.

The swivel on the phone is controlled by (wait for it……..) 130 precision ball bearings and 1 Swiss made main ball bearing making it much smoother than the V70.

Motorola V70

Lets have a little look closer and see what this phone has to offer:

  • Band: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz
  • Data: GPRS/EDGE
  • Size: 96.9mm x 47.6mm x 18.6mm (3.8" x 1.9" x .7")
  • Weight: 141g (5oz)
  • Battery: 810mAh
  • Battery Life: Estimated 16.5 days standby time
                        Estimated 7 hours talk time
  • Main Display: 1.5" diameter 16m color round TFT capable of displaying 16 million colours with 300 DPI resolution
  • Camera: 2 megapixel
  • Video: Record/Playback
  • Messaging: SMS/MMS/IM
  • Email: POP3/IMAP and Web-based
  • Bluetooth: 2.0 + EDR with A2DP
  • Memory: 2GB internal
  • Availability: Planned Q4 2008
  • Other: Speakerphone, Sapphire crystal lens
  • MicroUSB
  • MicroSD

You would guess that a phone like this would be rather expensive due to the parts inside needed to make it run (all 700+ of them) and the 62-carat sapphire crystal lens but I was not expecting to see it on the MOTO Store for $1,999.99. I think I will stick to looking at it’s photo’s.
