PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Hi-Mobile.net once again kindly stepped up and sent us in the next-generation Motorola Linux-based ROKR-E2 feature phone. In the tradition of the ROKR devices, the E2 is also built around the idea of music on the go, while it's the first Linux phone to have an initial retail cost smaller than $256. Read inside for our detailed review, video and pictures.

user interface niggles

The awkward user interface problems mentioned (too many key presses to do things, etc) are not just a problem with this linux phone. They are a problem with every motorola phone ever made (or at least every one I know of). They just appear not to care about their users, since they have been doing it for years.

I have an old moto for work, and a newer (borrowed) one for real life, and both are incredibly awkward. Friends with motos say the same.

Much as I'd like to like this phone (for geek value, even if it's not a geek phone as such) the infamous crap moto user interface puts me off.
