The original article is in Russian, but Alta Vista's Babble Fish does a decent job of translating. Click the link above to read the translation.<br /><br /><img src="http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/images/pic7.jpg" alt="User submitted image" title="User submitted image"/><br /><br />This is a great looking device, but the fact that they are using the TI OMAP processor instead of Intel's XScale is a bit disappointing. I was also hoping that this device would come with Smartphone 2003, but judging from the screen shots that is not the case.<br /><br /><b>Update: Alex Feinman, our friend and fellow MVP, took the time to manually translate most of this article into English. Check it out <a href="http://www.alexfeinman.com/v700.htm">here</a>. Shortly after finishing, he noticed that mobilereview.com has decided to publish their own translation (don't you hate it when that happens?). So now you can also check out the official translation <a href="http://mobile-review.com/preview/motorola-v700-en.shtml">here</a>.</b>

Here's an interesting quote:
When you open the smartphone, you will see a large display with the resolution of 176x220 pixels. Up to 9 text lines, service line and tips to the soft keys are contained there. The display supports up to 65000 colors, unfortunately it is not a touhscreen. Such kind of handsets will be available in the end of summer 2004.

That is a sweet looking phone. And with new OS and bluetooth version coming out next year we seem to be on the right track. Way to go Moto!

These are such a good news, i cant begin to express my feelings :lol: :) :D 8O :?
Motorola are known to have so powerfull cell phones, and so slick designs thats they make you want to "collect them all".
They are also known to have very bad software design eng. all thier cell phones have such a bad navigation system, such an bad explained OS and feature set....
This move will combine the mother of all hardware, with the mother of all OS....i am almost sure that whatever phone will come after this one (not motorola) will be less then this...
Good luck Motorola - Microsoft, the best move ever :P

Interesting review - no comments are made regarding the phone's memory but it appears to have double the memory I have in my QTEK7070. Is that, do you think, a requirement for Mobile 2003? Are we all lost with our old phones and 32Mb?

ZDNet's Patrick Houston gets an early look at the newly released Motorola MPx200, the first GSM phone released in the United States that features Windows Mobile Software.

ok, pure product marketing (that guy could be an Irish politician - mainly talking from script and not directly answering questions!! ;)) - but a nice look at the phone compared to the still photos we've seen so far
