By Oscar nominantion only

Motorola’s ROKR E8 is a quad-band GSM/GPRS/Edge handset, with a 2in display and 2GB of internal memory. There’s also a memory card slot, allowing Oscar nominees to capture the event's glitz through the phone’s two-megapixel camera.

The Oscars take place on 24 February, but the ROKR E8 isn’t expected to hit European stores until some point during the first quarter of this year.
