Motorola A780: The Killer Phone?



After reading a few articles about the new Motorola A780, the only thing I can think of is the potential to be the killer phone.  It runs Linux and most apps run on top of a virtual machine using Java.  I really like the form factor, which is saying a lot from a guy who is firmly in the candy bar phone camp.

I’m not going to drill down in to specs, but it has them: EDGE, Bluetooth, MIDP 2.0, Opera 7, document viewers, a 1.3 megapixel camera, and some whacky TransFlash memory module (as if the world needed yet another memory form factor).  It seems more functional than the flashy RAZR.  Something about this phone has grabbed the Series 60 power user inside me and has it very interested.  You can bet that I’ll be keeping a close eye on this one.
