CTIA 2014 Super Mobility Week: Motorola Evoke QA4

2:05 /

The Moto Evoke QA4 offers a touch-screen and multimedia features. Get a first look from CTIA 2009.

[ Music ] >> Kent German: Hi. I'm Kent German, Senior Editor at CNET.com. I'm here at CTIA 2009 in Las Vegas to show you the Motorola Evoke QA4. Now, Motorola actually announced this one a couple of days before the show began. Of course, this is our first chance to see it. It is a touch screen phone and a curvy design. It looks a little like the Motorola Serb [assumed spelling], which Moto introduced at CES this year. Same concept, a little bit not quite as high end but does have the touch screen, and not the biggest touch screen around. Really, we like touch screens to be three inches at least. This is quite that, but it does have a pretty easy-to-understand menu interface just with a bunch of icons. The phone actually has a number of widgets. So, what that is is if you actually take the menu down, you can actually cycle through the widgets by swiping your finger. So, the sliding action is kind of nice. You know, we don't really see that on a lot of phones. It's a pretty fair assortment. There's a USA Today from News Headlines. You'll find MySpace. You'll find YouTube, weather, Google applications. So the phone does have a slider design so it's your keypad underneath. Really large numbers. Pretty nice. The letters are a tiny bit small, but nice bright backlighting. Keypad is flat with the surface of the phone so you want you to be aware that, but you are able to dial in actual real keys. It does have a QWERTY keyboard so, but it is virtual so we'll tip the phone on its side. You'll see the virtual keyboard. As I said, on a screen this small, it is going to be pretty tight getting in there and using both fingers, but not that if you have smaller hands, it may not be a big deal for you. It does have a megapixel camera, has a music player, organizer features, Bluetooth, speakerphone. So a lot of the features that you'd expect. Definitely messaging, some e-mail. You see the camera lens right here. Here on the side, there is a locking switch that's essential on having a touch screen phone so that you can flip that up, and the screen won't lock. Also, you have a camera button right here, and here on the side there's a volume monitor. Overall, pretty stylish phone, a good number of features. Doesn't really offer a lot new so it doesn't bring anything really outrageous to the table, but still like the widgets, like the interface, like the swiping, and it has a nice view [inaudible] as well. I'm Kent German, and this is the Motorola Evoke AQ4. [ Music ]
