Motorola V360 Review

Featuring a 4-color 96 x 80 px LCD, the V360's external screen is enhanced with a larger surface area (the V300 and V330 being 2-color 96 x 32 px LCDs). Above the display, the lens to a 0.3-megapixel VGA camera captures still and moving photos at up to 640 x 480 px in resolution.

A Charger Port (mini-USB Port) and Voice Dial are located on the left side, used for record voice messages or issuing voice commands, while Volume Keys and a dedicated Smart Key is situated on the right, providing access to frequent functions by anticipating likely subsequent actions are to follow; such as the selection a menu item after it has been highlighted. A standard Headphone Jack is nearby provides personal listening with the built-in MP3 player, or convenient handsfree communication with a wired headset.

The top is labeled with a TransFlash memory card sign; however the battery door needs to be removed to access the slot. While the cards are hot swappable, it's baffling why Motorola didn't design the V360 with slot access rather than requiring the door to be removed.
