Motorola W230 – Dark Titanium Gray


About W230:
If one is looking for a mobile with an MP3 and FM player, this is the phone to buy. It has a 256 MB memory card which can be extended up to 2GB. It boasts of an extremely long battery life [9 hours talk time, 450 hours stand-by]. It’s been decent till now, I have charged it only twice for about a week now. [The usage, though, has been minimal in the week]. It comes with an USB data cable + real good ear-phones + weighs less than 100 grams.
Anyway, this post wasn’t meant to be a Motorola products advertisement.
Given the fact that I had only about 256 MB free space for music, I needed to come up with a playlist. With some help from my page in last.fm, this is what I ended up with.

Great, but you never mentioned its cost in the post, that is the killer! :P

Though it doesn't have camera[which is a mess if low resolution], how fast is the firmware? Does it boot up fast?

evilsense said...

and yeah, battery life claim is very impressive, [ considering the fact that nokia is always hailed for better battery life ]

One more victim to technolgy

@takaal: lolwut???

I would call a guy victim to technology when he buys the new nokia phone impressed by GPS[even htough he doesnt need it, and considering the fact that his area may not have a map at all]

When driven by needs, if someone *uses* a technology, then, you know... :D

Rakesh Babu G R said...

well, that is the point. We dont need technology to survive. But our day to day existence is not possible without technology with the kind of life we lead.

@evilsense..
the firmware is fast, man..there are not really that many applications to boot, so.. you never actually have to wait for the hourglass to stop spinning.
@takaal..
lol.. yea.. but as u said.. can't really live without one, man.. not in industry..
@all
yea.. kept the cost out of it coz Motorola is not paying me anything for propaganda..
but for general info it is 2.9k

Logik said...

Takaal is jealous....

He quit orkut a few months back citing some similar reasons...
But now he's back...
He's honest enough to say that its for purely stalking purposes only..

Logik said...

btw , if you're not the memory-upgrade types.. I suggest you reduce bitrate for your tracks..

Isn't 43 too less a number?... Or is to be one-up on the answer to everything?..

Dha said...

@logik..
i get some 3 hours of songs, man.. and right now, that's sufficient..
so, as of now atleast... i would have to agree that it is one up on the answer to everything
:P
