motorola W220: due Q3 2006

This entry-level flip phone owes something to the 3G version of the RAZR – but only in looks. Under the hood it’s a pretty basic dual-band device with long battery life (eight hours talk time, 12 days standby) but very few extras.

You do get FM radio but no camera, MP3 player or Bluetooth. While there’s no external secondary display you do get three service indicators on the outside for missed calls, incoming messages and battery status.

Originally announced back in February, this is Motorola’s first all-new product of the year by our count.
