Oh Moto Moto Motorola SLVR L7!

I had the Motorola SLVR L7 for a couple of weeks, and here are my thoughts about it:
  • Skinny! Its about the same thickness as an Apple Nano
  • Beautiful keypad. Motorola wisely kept the wonderful and wide Razr keypad on the SLVR. Its wide enough for my clumsy fingers dial easily
  • Bluetooth connection is iffy sometimes, especially with other non-Motorola bluetooth headset. Once I switched to the Motorola H3 bluetooth headset, the SLVR stopped dropping the connection.
  • The 100 iTunes songs limitation is irritating! The 512 microSD (Transflash) memory card that came with the phone is spacious enough to contain over 100 songs.
  • MightyPhone support is coming soon. (For those who don't know MightyPhone, its a service that stores your appointments/meetings, contacts and To-Do list on the server, and it automatically syncs your phone with your Microsoft Outlook/Lotus Notes)
  • Call quality is great. The reception is not as good as the Motorola Razr.
  • Expensive! At $199 for a 2 year contract, its not as expensive as the Razr when it first came out, but you're paying early user adoption fees for sure!
For those who needs to be in the fashion, this is the new Razr! Its looks are unmatched! For those who are power-users, go for other phones. The SLVR doesn't have the EDGE connection for speedy data transfer!

Up next:
Nokia 6682 Series 60 (S60 now) Smartphone. Would it be your next purchase?
