^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hi I'm Kent German, Senior Editor at CNET.com here at the CTIA Fall 2007 show in San Francisco. Here today to show you the Motorola Rocker U-9 you can see that it looks a little bit like the Pebble that is sort of the point; of course it has the glossy skin, it's very shiny and it's not that smooth rubberized skin of the Pebble. There is an external screen; it is invisible when the back light is off, but gives you a little flick of the volume rocker and there you can see that it actually shows up behind the external phase. Also like the Pebble the phone does have a hinge that opens up to the back. Unlike the Pebble it doesn't do the thing where you would press up and it would flip open automatically. Inside we have a nice internal display, pretty bright and colorful, shows everything you need. The key pad buttons and navigation controls are flat with the surface of the phone. You'd expect that in a phone like this; it's kind of the design style of it. They weren't too bad to use from what I can tell; very similar to Razer craser design; got that round toggle. There is no carrier for this phone yet. It is a GSM phone. Overall pretty interesting phone, music center with a rocker name so you can have a lot of music things on there. No iTune stability like the original rocker you want but still got some music on there. I'm Kent German and this is the Motorola Rocker U-9. ^M00:01:09 [ Music ] ^M00:01:13
