Motorola L6i and Motorola L7i

Motorola L6i

Motorola L6i

Always first with the news and—most importantly of course—pictures, imodephones presents the Motorola L6i. I’m yet to see one in the flesh, but this and it’s sister phone (the Motorola L7i, see below) look like the kind of phones i-mode® have been crying out for. Lightweight and extremely slimline, but far better specified than it’s immediate competitor, the NEC 343i .

The L6i appears to be a direct port of the Motorola L6 to i-mode® which is great news for the platform, as a manufacturer is clearly not just trying to palm off a stripped down version of a better phone for the network.

A few vital statistics about the L6i:

The Motorola L7i looks even better than the L6i: a higher definition screen (both resolution and colour depth), video camera, more internal memory. Very nice indeed for such a slim and trim phone.

Like the L6/L6i, the L7i certainly appears to be a direct port of the Motorola SLVR to i-mode® which is even better news than the port of the L6i. The SLVR has been an extremely successful phone for Motorola, and that it’s appearing on i-mode® is a clear sign that there’s a great deal of faith being shown in the platform from all areas.

A few vital statistics about the L7i:

Samsung S400i 6 March 2006

The Samsung S400i is an extremely nice entry level handset; small, light and good looking, it’s a great alternative to the entry level NEC handsets.

Samsung Z320i 23 January 2006

The Samsung Z320i is both a joy and a slight disappointment. Better designed and more user friendly than it’s predecessor the Samsung S500i, but with a smaller screen resolution and lacking both a memory card and Flash Lite capability. But what’s the denoument?

NEC 411i 12 January 2006

Update Now with FREE DVD Recorder!
Review of the NEC411i: a great phone if you want to get into browsing the i-mode® web, it’s functional looking but is a joy to use.

Samsung S500i 18 October 2005

Samsung S500i—I don’t like it, but don’t let that stop you, it’s not all bad. A good camera and a nice mp3 player nearly make up for the dodgy i-mode

NEC 343i 11 October 2005

Review of the NEC343i: it looks great, works OK and it’s the cheapest way to get on i-mode.
