everyone lusts over a motorola v3
everyone is talking about the suprisingly cool phone from motorola. the v3
. it phone is thin beyond belief. i can probably fit it inside my wallet without any problems. its got a lovely screen, cool keypad and even a STANDARD mini-USB connector! finally someone with some sense to not make those hideous customised connectors (yes nokia, samsung and the rest of the industry.) finally you can charge your phone from a standard USB socket (i hope!)
bad points is that its made by motorola, who have a reputation for screwing things up, especially with the UI. i can't tell what OS its running. is it UIQ or something else? it doesn't look like Series 60. its probably using some internal OS. anyway, the fact that it uses a standard USB, might mean that it syncs properly using some USB endpoints, so maybe custom macosx or linux drivers .. yum!
