A phone overlooked by everyone for almost a year, we just received word in the form of official press release that Motorola is releasing its EM300 (aka “Ischia”) music-centric phone on AT&T soon.
Last we heard from this phone, it had been approved by the FCC in July 2008, and finally has made its way onto a US carrier. The specs, however, are a little different than when this phone was originally announced.
As we can tell, it looks as though the major focus of the EM330 will be in the music. We’ll get into the specs shortly.
First, behold the visual feast.
The pictures here are very similar to the ones leaked when the EM330 went through the FCC, only the interior is white instead of blue.
Some highlights of the EM330 include:
- Touch-sensitive external screen (much like the V9, we assume)
- 1.3 MP Camera with video capture
- FM Radio with RDS
- “3D Sound” Surround-sound quality
- EQ with 11 pre-set genres included
- 3.5 mm headphone jack
- Stereo Bluetooth
- Tri-band EDGE (no 3G from what we can tell)
- Crystal-Talk Technology
- Dedicated music key
- 20 MB internal memory, MicroSD up to 2 GB external memory
We know, we know — groundbreaking stuff here. But it should appeal to some music junkies out there, especially the 2 GB external memory.
From what we can tell, the EM330 will likely have a quiet launch and it will be interesting to see what kind of shelf life this phone has. At any rate, be prepared to feast your eyes on this beauty at AT&T stores sometime in Q2 2009.
