#MWC09: Motosurf A3100 video demo and some pics

I don’t really understand why on earth Motorola exhibits at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

This is the second year that I visit their stand and they don’t have a single interesting thing on display.

Just these plain old lame phones we are seeing again and again. And when I asked Motorola rep on the stand why don’t you have anything new here, he said: “Well, you know, we announced something at CES, so now, maybe, we’ll do something at CTIA…

No wonder they are having troubles and losing marketshare and tons of money quarter after quarter.

The best they had on display in Barcelona was MOTOSURF A3100 phone – their version of a full touchscreen handset. And I can’t say anything good about it.

The interface is lame, touchscreen non responsive enough, and, compared to the things being announced here…, well, nothing to write home about…

Here’s a video demo for Motorola A3100:

And here’s some live pics of it:

    Hi MotoMania! Nice to see you here.

    Well, in the video it actually shows the unique user interface of the A3100. Come on, Spinner menu navigation on Windows Mobile? Very nice indeed, as well as its integrated software. Also, the hardware is really nice, love the flush design on the camera and buttons. It's time for Motorola to kick some major butt today.
