By Kelly Hodgkins, BGR


Sunday is a banner day for Sprint which added not only the Treo Pro, but also the LG Rumor 2 and the Motorola Stature i9 to its handset lineup. The qwerty-slider LG Rumor 2 is available both online and in stores for a rock bottom price of $49.99 after an instant savings of $150 and a $50 mail-in rebate. The Rumor 2, as you surely know by now, sports a QVGA display, 1.3 megapixel camera, GPS, stereo Bluetooth, microSDHC support (up to 16GB) and a 2.5mm headphone jack. Next up is the Nextel Direct Connect-compatible Stature i9, available for $199.99 after an instant savings of $150 and a $50 mail-in rebate. The Stature has already made its debut on Boost Mobile and offers a 3.1MP camera with flash and auto focus, integrated music player, GPS, Bluetooth and rock solid PTT functionality. Two year contracts apply to the pricing on both handsets of course. Happy shopping!


Motorola Evoke QA4 Appears on Motorola’s Site

By Chris, Mobilewhack


A certain Motorola Evoke QA4 phone has appeared on Motorola’s site although the phone isn’t arriving any time soon, and there’s no point even talking about prices just yet.

The phone hasn’t been officially announced yet but oddly enough it made it to the official site. Which must mean that it was just a simple human error, wasn’t it? The slider phone will feature a 2.8-inch touchscreen display, a standard 12-button keypad and 3G connectivity. But we’d need more details to judge this Moto handset.

Motorola Rival A455 and Evoke QA4 – specs unveiled

Via: unwiredview.com

Although they’re not officially announced, Motorola A455 and Motorola Evoke QA4 have already appeared in press photos.

Now we also have their main features and specs, which confirm the fact that the handsets are not high-end ones.

Let’s start with the A455.

Previously appeared as Motorola Rush 2, the device will apparently be launched as Motorola Rival A455.

We’ve already told you the phone will be outed by Verizon and that it comes with a full sliding QWERTY keyboard and a touchscreen display.


The screen size of Rival A455 is still unknown, but the rest of its features include:

• Dual band CDMA connectivity (800/1900 MHz) with 1X/EV-DO
• Stereo Bluetooth
• VZ Navigator support (so it has GPS?)
• 3.5mm headset jack
• MP3 player
• E-mail, Instant Messaging
• USB 2.0
• 2MP camera with video recording
• MicroSD/SDHC card support
• 97 x 51 x 18 mm
• 125 grams

Like the A455, Motorola Evoke QA4 is a CDMA / EV-DO Rev. A phone, so it might become a Verizon deal as well.


Its specs include:

• Touchscreen display with virtual QWERTY keyboard (the screen’s resolution is probably 240 x 400 pixels)
• Bluetooth with A2DP
• MP3 player
• E-mail, Instant Messaging
• Voice recognition
• 2MP camera with video
• MicroSD / MicroSDHC support
• 108 x 50.5 x 17.5 mm
• 128 grams

No word yet on when Motorola will release the Rival A455 and Evoke QA4. Let’s hope it won’t happen too late.

Motorola Announces MC5590 and MC5574 Cellphones

By Chris, Mobilewhack


With phones like these two Motorola will slowly disappear from the face of the cellphones business. Sure we need rugged phones but they could always look better than these two. The MC5590 and the MC5574 have been just announced by Motorola. They are business-oriented smartphones. But where would you have to work in order to get such a device? The North Pole? Are the phones made for those busy elves? The phones are going to arrive in Q2 so we might have an answer to those questions by then. No pricing details for now, but would you really buy any of those? And by the way, where are all those hot Moto phones we’ve seen back in December?
