have a confession to make. As a
sworn user of Nokia mobile phones, there would be no way I would be compromised
into using any other phone than the cute and innovative phones produced by
– I beg to differ. As I held the
v60 in my hands – I knew I held a gem – a treasure so many have been
searching for, and not finding – and now – all is revealed in this tiny work
of art – Motorola’s latest offering to the mobile world:
a stylish and sleek device which oozes elegance and sophistication. What more could a lady ask for?

dimensions bearing a little larger than its v8088 predecessor, this little baby
doesn’t feel its size and weight at all.

25mm (d) dimensions
sits comfortably in my little black bag, as well as fits perfectly on the
contours of my face when I’m speaking on the phone.

have got to say – this little thing packs heaps.
Heralded as being designed to be intuitive and easy to use, with improved
user navigation and visual cues, the v60 promises to deliver and satisfy.
However, Nokia users be cautioned. A
change is always good, but the navigation system on the v60 needs a little
getting used to. I found myself hitting the “Send/Call” key every time I
try to cancel a function. It is
just because that key is on the right of the phone, where the “Hang
up/Cancel” button is on the Nokia. However,
after a few tries and play-around, I got the hang of doing things the Motorola
way. It is different, and it is
definitely a change from what we are normally used to, and I have got to say –
I could get use d to the Motorola way of ding things.
