    I think I know what is wrong with Motorola — They chimps running the show. Why go through the effort of making a surprisingly attractive unit [for a moto] and leave it with only a 2.0 camera and no wifi ?? And why did not they not release a GSM version of it ? Who cares about Alltel [no offense to alltel folks]

    There’s little/no point in a slide out number pad. People don’t really have trouble with an on-screen number pad. Slide out qwerty keyboards are quite different in value.

    Motorola needs to shift to being a design warehouse- conceptualizing the externals of a phone but leaving the OS and minutia to others who won’t mess it up. Their phones usually look decent enough, but the internals and OS don’t hold up.
