[ music ] ^M00:00:01 >> Hey there, what's going on? I'm Rich DeMuro with CNET TV in New York City here at the Motorola Mobile Experience where they've announced a couple new phones. This is the Rocker Z6 from Motorola. And it's a slider phone and they've described it as sort of an MP3 player hiding a cell phone and you can see why. When you have it turned on, it looks just like pretty much your standard, compact MP3 player but, you slide up the screen and underneath it reveals your full cell phone keypad. So the main features of this phone are that it's a music phone first and foremost, so it supports downloads from all types of music service and Plug and Play with Windows Media Player. So you just hook it up, USB 2.0 to your computer and you can download songs right to your phone with no software installation or anything like that. Now on board memory for songs is 64 megabytes, but they're really not concentrating on that for your song holding. You are going to use these little micro SD cards that Motorola is really hot on, 2 gigs, they're saying it holds about 1000 songs and this plugs in the back of the phone, underneath the battery or near the battery so, not on the side of the phone which would have been a little bit easier maybe. So how are you gonna listen to your music? Well in many of the markets they're bundling it with these really neat Blue Tooth S9 headphones from Motorola as well and they go in your ear so the sound is really crisp, really loud and there are controls on these to listen to your music. So that's a great way to listen. Taking a look at the form factor of this phone, very sleek. Of course those nice lines that Motorola is becoming known for. A dedicated music key here so you have one touch to your music, access to your music. And then when you flip it over and you turn it on your side, right where you think a shutter button would be for a camera, you get access to that nice 2 mega pixel camera and you could snap a picture there. It's right here on the back. So this one is the orange and black version. They also have a red and black version and then a full black version. So it's gonna be available in Asia pretty soon and then the rest of the world after that. So here it is, the Motorola Rocker Z6, complete with a brand new logo. So you definitely wanna check that out. I'm Rich DeMuro with CNET.com. ^M00:02:07 [ music ]
