Motorola has announced that from 1 July, its MOTO ROKR E8 will be available on prepay at Orange, O2, T-Mobile, Virgin and the Carphone Warehouse. Although already available on contract, it is the first time that the music phone is available to prepay customers. In addition, customers of Orange and O2 will be able to enjoy some added benefits. Orange prepay customers who purchase the ROKR E8 online will receive an exclusive ROKR speaker set to accompany the handset. O2 customers will receive a unique PIN code that entitles them to download 10 tracks from a choice of over 200 songs from a variety of different genres.
The MOTO ROKR E8 features Motorola's ModeShift technology that allows the user to switch instantly from phone mode to music mode with the touch of a button. The keypad's control keys transform depending on what mode you are in.
The price of the MOTO ROKR E8 is operator dependent.
