Verizon launches a trio of Moto products: Motorola Rapture VU30, MOTO VU204 and MOTOPURE H15

It’s a clamshell day today for Verizon Wireless, as after releasing the slim Samsung Sway, the US carrier has also announced the availability of two other new flip phones, built by the big M: Motorola Rapture VU30 and MOTO VU204.  

Available right away, Motorola Rapture VU30 is a phone that we’ve seen before, but at that time there were no official details about it. Now we’ve got ‘em all, plus some good-looking pictures.

It seems that the VU30 is one of Motorola’s best new clamshells, although it’s far from being a high-end phone.


Here are the specs and features of  Motorola Rapture VU30:

  • 1X/EV–DO connectivity (800 / 1900 MHz)
  • 2.2 inch TFT QVGA internal display 
  • 1.6 inch touch-sensitive TFT external display with 120 x 160 pixels
  • V CAST Music with Rhapsody and V CAST Videos
  • VZ Navigator   
  • 2 MP camera with video recording 
  • Music player
  • 2.5mm headset jack
  • Email & Internet browser
  • microSD card support, 8GB max.  
  • 3.4 ounces
  • 3.9 x 1.9 x 0.67 inches 
  • 270 minutes of talk-time or up to 470 hours of stand-by time

With a 2-yr contract agreement and after a 50 bucks mail-in rebate, Motorola VU30 can be bought for $129.99. Or, you can opt for a month-to-month contract, but that will require $300 sans one cent from you. 

The second new phone from Verizon, MOTO VU204 (pictured above), is not yet available for purchase, but Verizon did mention some of its features:     

  • VZ Navigator
  • Verizon’s Media Center 
  • E-mail, Instant Messaging 
  • Stereo Bluetooth
  • VGA camera with dedicated key

MOTO VU204 is cheaper than the Rapture VU30, and it will be on sale for only $29.99 with a contract for two years and after a $50 mail-in rebate.

Together with the new Motorola phones, Verizon has also unveiled the MOTOPURE H15 universal Bluetooth headset. This is compatible with both Motorola Rapture VU30 and MOTO VU204, and it will be available for purchase starting October 8, being priced at $99.99.
