Vintage Tech : The Motorola Rokr

Saturday, December 7, 2019

In 2005 Motorola announced the Rokr, in the wake of the Razr phenomenon. I guess some people didn't want that iconic flip to hang up feature - but there WAS a draw to this phone, itunes. Some may argue that the Rokr was the first step towards the birth of the Apple iPhone, as Steve Jobs announced iTunes on the Rockr during a keynote in San Fransisco. 

The phone had an upgradable 512MB (yes, less than a gigabyte) memory, but you could get this baby all the way up to a whopping 1GB. Meaning that this iPod phone could hold as many as 100 songs you stole from Limewire.

Sadly, the phone did not perform very well and sold below expectations and motorola dumped a ton of money into marketing. What killed it? Well, the iPod Nano.


To be fair - I had a V3 pink Razr and a white iPod Nano instead of this boring looking phone. It just wasn't my style.

Vintage Tech : Dolce and Gabbana Razr

In December of 2005 Motorola collaborated with fashion house Dolce & Gabbanna with the already popular Razr V3i. Only 1,000 units were available worldwide. The device was a custom gold color, had a special background and startup chime. The device also featured a higher power camera at a CRAZY 1.23 megapixel lens. 

These phones were available only through the Dolce & Gabbanna boutiques.
