Motorola StarTac III MS900 Phone. Back to the Future

With popularity of it’s RAZR hit phone fading, Motorola is looking to the past for inspiration. It wants us to remember the early days of mobile communications with new release of Motorola StarTacIII MS900 phone.

Announced today in Korea Motorola StarTac III comes with 2″ 240×320 px, 260K TFT QVGA screen, 128 MB of built-in memory, MP3 player, GPS, Mobile banking, Korean-English dictionary, e-book reader and biorhythm function.

Motorola MS900 has dimensions of 89×48.5×19.6 mm, weights 92g, has 160 minutes of talk and up to 300 hours of standby time.

However, it seems that Motorola may have gone too retro with StarTac III. First – they did not include camera in otherwise really cool package. Second, there’s no external screen to show the incoming call number, only 3 color LED line to indicate the type of incoming call.

It took about a decade for Motorola to repeat the success of original StarTac with RAZR. Let’s see how the new StarTaCIII will do.
