Over the past year or so, Motorola handsets have been relatively thin on the ground. Compared to the likes of Nokia and Samsung, Motorola has taken a more relaxed approach. It's not that it's doing badly -- in fact, it's doing very well -- but it just wasn't as rushed when it came to making new phones. At least, that's what we thought.
Over the past couple of months, Motorola has announced a whole bunch of new handsets including the, which is now available in shops, and the Razr xx, which features HSDPA connectivity. A few days ago, Motorola added another new handset to its portfolio -- the Motorola Slvr L7e.
The L7e is essentially the same as its predecessor, the ultra-thin candybar, but it comes in blue and features a 1.3-megapixel camera and a new keypad. The new keypad is more akin to the original layout and therefore should be easier to use than the original L7s zig-zag layout.
According to sources at Motorola, the L7e will be available some time before Christmas. Expect a full review soon. -AL
