Motorola Rival A455 (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Motorola Rival has a neat touch screen, but can't match up to its texting competition.

Nice touch-screen dialer. Comfortable keyboard. 3.5mm headphone jack.

So-so RF reception. Poor camera. Some balky buttons.

Motorola Rival A455 Video Review

 

The Motorola Rival is making a grand entrance into Canada and competes with all the other QWERTY devices out there. This was released by TELUS last week and I can see this eventually ending up at their sub-brand Koodo Mobile one day.
