Motorola A1000 mobile phone


With the 3G market heating up Motorola has announced three new handsets on the 3 3G network. The A1000 is the PDA styled unit that's aimed at the mobile worker, however while that might be the plan for Motorola, 3 seem to have other ideas for it.

Large screen, 3G download speeds, 1.2 megapixel camera

Poor design, bad interface, restrictive

As a standalone phone the device performs below average, yes it may have Bluetooth, a document viewer and 1.2 megapixel camera, but the screen's preciseness was slightly off-sync with the stylus resulting in the frustration of wrong buttons pressed,...

The Motorola A1000 is a fast, well specified PDA phone and the enormous screen is very impressive. The screen also dictates whether this phone will be any good to you as it makes the phone big and heavy, so if you want to make video calls and movie...

Motorola A1000. Capabilities of the megapixel camera


Today smartphone A1000 is the only UIQ-device equipped with a 1.2 megapixel camera. Unfortunately, Motorola cannot provide high quality of the integrated matrixes yet and as a result the photos are not very interesting and lose to the ones taken with...

Unfortunately, the quality of the camera in A1000 is low and it's inferior to many cameras that GSM-devices are equipped with. You should remember that this camera was developed long before such devices appeared mass and evidently that tells upon the...

Motorola A1000 3G Phone Review


This is a review of the Motorola A1000 handset and was undertaken in November, 2004 by Kevin Thomas of

A fluent video streaming performance complements its superb feature set and stunning design.

Alright, the RAZR's wafer-thin profile may have been compromised a tad, but for a 3G phone it's positively svelte.

So the RAZR's put on a little weight. It's still time for you RAZRettes to upgrade. Sharpish.

Motorola A1000


Motorola's striking A1000 offers a blend of connectivity and performance, but is let down by a short 3.5 hour battery life. This sleek grey-and-silver...

Great screen, good sound, zippy transfer rates

Kludgy input method, short battery life

The A1000 is a fantastic smartphone if you're looking for multimedia playback; it's responsive and features top-notch audio and video. Just don't expect to enter huge amounts of text into it.

I've tried this phone, it has a big comfortable screen display but I think the size is too big, quite hard to hold it in my hand while I'm walking or doing something. This phone has already enchanted with 3G, high resolution camera, music environment...
