Motorola Dext video review

Read the full Motorola Dext review

The Dext has a great deal going for it. The capacitance touchscreen is reasonably good, the slide-out keyboard is excellent and the Motoblur social networking apps are a treat to use. However, the lack of multi-touch, ugly design and sometimes sluggish performance means it doesn't endear itself to you in the same way as, say, the HTC Hero. It's still a fine handset, but it's far from being our favourite Android handset. Perhaps Motorola can go one better with the upcoming Droid, or Milestone as it seems set to be called in Europe.

So the Google machine resolves the problem of software for mobile phone handset vendors. Motorola have gone from an also ran to having a great handset, the issue with them has never been hardware. Software has been the gating factor for Chinese suppliers to enter the market. Now the software issue is taken aware prepare for the onslaught.

Android is game changing.

Surely there's a motorola phone without the slide out keyboard coming. Don't quite get why they haven't released one at the same time.

I am looking an android phone with a slide out keyboard for a christmas present for the missus. So far they have all been a bit crap. I want a nice phone for web and email, no camera of fancy stuff needed and about £200. You would think someone would bring out a blackberry alternative.
