Motofone Clearvision

Motorola have launched a new budget handset, the Motofone, with a revolutionary display using "e-Ink" making it low powered and their thinnest phone yet.
 
MOTOFONE borrows key elements from Motorola’s existing catalogue and gives them a new twist. Flat keypad, colors, innovative materials and finish processes combine to make a handset that is not only low-cost, but low-powered, and only 9mm thick.

Featuring the new ClearVision display, MOTOFONE leverages revolutionary Electrophoretic Display (EPD) technology to provide users with a large, high-contrast screen that is viewable even in bright sunlight. The ClearVision display combined with a flush-fitting keypad and dust-resistant design makes the MOTOFONE sleek yet durable in active everyday use.

The changeable electronic ink display is easy to read in bright sunlight or dimly lit environments from virtually any angle – just like paper. Additionally, the display is plastic, lightweight and ultra-low power, making it ideal for mobile and power sensitive applications by eliminating the weight and breakability of glass used in LCD displays.

"In the weeks and months to come, consumers from around the world will enjoy the benefit of the technological innovations packed into MOTOFONE," said Ron Garriques, President, Mobile Devices, Motorola Inc.

"E Ink is unleashing the design freedom of Motorola which enables disruptive innovation," said Russ Wilcox, CEO of E Ink Corporation. "Today’s launch marks an unique moment in the display industry as it shows that electronic paper displays are entering the mainstream."

The GSM version, MOTOFONE F3, is available today in India and will roll out in international markets in the coming weeks.
