Three ROKR handsets on the horizon

Motorola's music-focused ROKR range is to have three new recruits. The ROKR EM30 uses the same ModeShift technology as seen in the ROKR E8, to transform the illuminated keypad into a designated music control pad. It means users can switch between talking and music with the touch of a button. Other features on the ROKR EM30 include a two-megapixel camera and an optional 8GB microSD removable storage card for all your media content.


The ROKR EM28 is a clamshell design that features touch-sensitive music controls on the front fascia that only appear when needed. The external screen also displays the name of the song and artist, and 3D sound technology gives the handset a surround-sound effect.


The ROKR EM25 sports a designated music key that provides immediate access to your stored music, and users can notify friends and family of new radio stations by sending the station frequency via a text message.


All three handsets sport a 3.5mm stereo headset jack allowing users to use their own music headset, GSM/EDGE connectivity, and the FM radio with RDS technology will display both the artist and song playing. With the ROKR EM30 set to launch in Taiwan, there is at present no set UK launch for either of the handsets.
