Verdict for Motorola PEBL
The next iPod?
Well, maybe not, but while other brands are concentrating on super thin mobile phones Motorola decided to offer something completely different with the Motorola PEBL and it looks like they have achieved something fairly special.
With slick advertising presenting this phone as a smooth pleasant thing to hold, a treasure akin to the joy of finding a shiny pebble on the beach, it appears like Motorola may have, in fact, struck gold.[B] It is clearly an attempt by the company to create a must have fashion accessory akin to Apple's iPod.
Early feedback on this hi tech oval shaped mobile phone has been extremely positive.
The PEBL has a black rubber casing and a self-opening mechanism which opens the cover with a flick of a switch. Inside you find a smart sharp screen and up-to-date technology.
- The Motorola Pebl offers video record and play, voice memo, enhanced predictive text and Bluetooth technology.
