Early last month, Motorola released three new Rokr phones , but it wasn't until a CTIA Fall 2008 media event when we had the chance to examine them for ourselves. They include the Rokr EM30, the Rokr EM28, and the Rokr EM25.

At the top of the food chain is the Rokr EM30. Like the Motorola Rokr E8 it offers a candy bar design and a ModeShift keypad. Features include a music player (of course), an FM radio, text-to-speech technology, Moto's CrystalTalk, a micorSD card slot, a 2-megapixel camera, an FM radio, a 3.5mm headset jack, and stereo Bluetooth.

The Rokr EM28 sports a standard flip phone design. It offers a music player, an FM radio, a 1.3-megapixel camera, Moto's CrystalTalk, external music controls, stereo Bluetooth, and a memory card slot.

On the low end is the Rokr EM25 slider phone. There's a music player, an FM radio, a 3.5mm headset jack, a microSD card slot, a 1.3-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, and Moto's CrystalTalk feature.
