MSNBC article on three new mobile phones available in the North American market
One of the mobile phones on MSNBC's article is the new Motorola MPx200 Windows Mobile Smartphone. On this device it says "As for the hardware, Motorola has come up with a well-crafted little device... What you need to know about the software is that somehow theyíve stuffed an amazing number of Pocket PC essentials into one very small cellular phone. Thereís Pocket Outlook, Pocket Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player 9, MSN Messenger and Active Sync for allowing the phone to become an active part of your desktop computer or your companyís server. As for how it works, itís unfair to compare this phone to a Blackberry or ones operating on the Palm OS or Java because they handle similar tasks in different ways. Itís like comparing apples and oranges. I would compare it to the Smartphone marketed by Orange that I tested in London a year ago, but thereís no comparison. The Motorola is one slick device."

And about the new Siemens SL56: "... thereís the new Siemens SL56 phone ó ďa revolution in desire,Ē as Siemens puts it. What that means is: when youíve seen one youíll want one... The SL56 is tiny (although not really that much smaller that the Motorola Smartphone). Itís 3.2 by 1.8 by 0.9 inches and barely weighs in at 2.8 ounces. Itís a dual band GSM/GPRS phone that runs on the 850 MHz and 1.9 GHz domestic bands only. The color display is 101 by 80 pixels and provides 4,096 colors. The lithium-ion polymer battery is said to last up to 180 minutes for talking and 175 hours for standby. The SL56 is very cool. The slide-out lighted keypad makes it one of the coolest designs youíve ever seen."
