Four Entry Level Handsets Introduced By Motorola

Mobile phone manufacturer Motorola had a lot of devices to showcase at this year's CTIA. Having pleased the US users with its latest CDMA handsets, Motorola has also added four new handsets to its extended mass market portfolio, the W218, W360, W380 and W395.
All of the before mentioned mobile phones can be easily described as entry-level, easy-to-use mobile phones for the non-pretentious user that is looking for a rather more affordable handset. So comparing to some of Motorola's higher-end devices sporting high mpx count cameras and large internal memory, these four offer features most users can't do without and nothing more.
The W218 is a slim and affordable classic candybar shaped phone that comes with a 1.6 65k color screen, FM Radio and VGA camera for your basic point and shoot moment capturing needs. Considering that it will mainly be used for contacts and text messages, the 1MB internal memory (a nightmare for any mobile phone lover) should prove to be enough.
Coming in a sleek and rather stylish clamshell form factor, the W380 comes with a more complete set of features than the latter, offering users a choice between SMS, MMS and IM, a VGA camera and an FM Radio. According to the manufacturer it can also be used as a storage device allowing the transfer photos and tracks through USB. The W360 also offers a VGA camera, MP3 ringtones, FM Radio and a 5MB internal memory.
The most 'high-tech' of the four, the W395 comes with some rather nice features for an affordable price. It packs a 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth for connectivity and a MicroSD card slot supporting up to 2GB cards. All of the four handsets should become available during the second half of the year.
