Motorola Launches Two ROKRs for the U.S., Plus a Third Overseas

Motorola_ROKR_EM28.jpgMotorola may be in plenty of trouble, but that hasn’t stopped the company from continuing to release mobile media-focused handsets. Gearlog reports that the company’s latest product intro includes the MOTOROKR EM30, a candybar phone using Motorola’s ModeShift technology; the ROKR EM28 (pictured), a flip phone with extra audio features and touch-sensitive keys; and the ROKR EM25, a slider with FM radio sharing capabilities.

The EM28′s touch-sensitive keys only appear “when needed,” the report said; the phone also includes 3-D sound, 11 audio EQ modes, and a 9 dB bass booster for blowing out your eardrums when listening to Kanye West‘s “Stronger.” The EM25, meanwhile, includes a built-in FM tuner and lets users share FM radio songs with each other.

Interestingly, the ROKR EM30′s keypad uses Motorola’s ModeShift technology to switch from red in music mode to blue in phone mode, the report said. It also shows the song title and artist from Internet radio streaming. Unfortunately we’re not getting this one here in the states, though—just the first two.
