Imagine: a phone that’s just a phone

I happened to see this Moto cell phone about a week back – probably a link off Digg or something like that.


Frankly, the simplicity appeals to me. The feature list is not as long as my arm:

• Built-in FM radio
• WAP 2.0 Browser
• Decent-sized color screen – 128×128 CSTN display
• Messaging services
• Lantern

I haven’t got a clue what lantern means, unless the phone can also be a flashlight. But the short list is in itself appealing. It’s not an MP3 player. It’s not a lousy camera. And it doesn’t want to manage my life.

All of which translates into better battery life and much simpler operation.
