Motorola PEBL U6 Review

Highly-polished, the PEBL's metal casing is wonderfully elegant, highlighted by a uniquely elongated monochrome LCD. Incredibly stylish, the external screen takes some getting used to, awkwardly displaying time (broken up into two lines), battery strength, and reception status. Also integrating a VGA camera, the lens below ensures consumers never miss a moment, capturing photos up to 640 x 480 px in size.

Volume Keys on the left adjust earpiece and ringer volumes during calls and standby times, while a Smart Key performs likely shortcuts to follow (such as selecting a menu item after it has been highlighted).

A Voice Key along the right records and initiates voice messages and dialing commands. And a mini-USB port within the top edge allows consumers to synchronize with a PC, also doubling as the charging port.

Using just one hand to slide down the top cover, a unique responsive mechanism opens the PEBL, revealing a brilliant 262K-color internal screen. Exposing an unorthodox "wave" keypad layout, users can text message through iTAP predictive input.

Out of the box, the Motorola PEBL U6 comes with a Standard 820 mAh Li-Ion Battery, Travel Charger, Earbud Headset, and User Manual.
