Motorola's VE70: coming to a bar store near you

Unfortunately, for the boozers among you, both are actually the latest 3G mobile phones from Motorola. The pair were recently unveiled in Korea, but are actually just different colours of the same phone: the VE70.

3G's supported and there's a 2Mp snapper

That’s not to say the VE70 will leave a sour taste in your mouth, because it supports HSDPA 3G connections of up to 7.2Mb/s and has a 2.2in, 320 x 240 LCD screen.

Drink in the looks

Only equipping the talker with a two-megapixel camera is pretty poor, but at least the phone supports Micro SD cards – of up to 4GB – for expandable storage. Audio files, including the MP3 format, are supported too.

Little else is known about the talker, except for the fact that fans can order it in either a “Cocktail Mint” body colour or a “Cocktail Tropical” hue.

It’s not yet known when the phone will be served up to the UK.
