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!
Conclusion:
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?
