Never mind that it also was the last Motorola phone that truly mattered.


<next phone discussed>


Motorola Rokr -- 2005The Rokr was the first phone to play nicely with iTunes, and it was such a big deal that Steve Jobs himself introduced the phone to the public. Too bad it was a horrible, horrible phone.

Sure it worked with iTunes, but it held no more than 100 songs. And getting them onto the phone was as quick and comfortable as a root canal without anesthesia. And then there was the UI. Dear god, the UI. Sluggish doesn't begin to describe it.

Still, the Rokr was a milestone because it opened the door to the phone as a media player. It could have been the iPhone. Instead, it inspired Apple to make the iPhone.


JFC,  how can anyone be so farking stupid and clueless about what they themselves are writing?

Hmmmm I've only had two of those specific models, the Nokia and the RAZR, despite having had a cell phone since 1998. I had a Motorola flip phone and several blackberries, but not the ones in the story.

It's weird. People hardly even seem to use them as actual phones anymore.
