Motorola V80 Turns Heads


The Motorola V80 has a never-before-seen mobile design with a rotating cover that opens at the touch of a button. The handset comes complete with an embedded 640×480 VGA camera, landscape photo imaging, photo messaging and integrated Bluetooth.

The tri-band handset defies conventional thinking about mobile phone design. When it is closed, the V80 showcases a large external colour display ideal for playing games and photo caller id. With a light push of a finger, the cover automatically rotates to unveil a full-size mobile phone ideal for text messaging and voice calls. When the moment arises, users can rotate the cover to a 90 degree angle and automatically set the phone into photo mode. The screen will switch to landscape mode and pictures can be captured with one simple press of a button.

“The Motorola V80 is designed to tap the desires of those consumers who crave the perfect intersection of style and technology,” said Ron Garriques, senior vice president and general manager, Motorola, PCS, EMEA. “With an eye-catching design, the style-driven model V80 combines cutting-edge technology features with a unique form to answer trendsetter’s wireless needs by making it easy to talk, text, take pictures and, most of all, showcase their style.”

The model V80’s MP3 ringtones and situational lighting help consumers bring their own personality to the handset. Attach your favorite song or lights to your friend’s number so you are alerted when they call or play your favorite JAVA™ games arcade-style with flashing lights.
