Amid all the hype surrounding the new LG 800g touch screen phone, many users have been asking me when I will have a Motorola EX124g Review ready to publish. Unfortunately, I don’t know, but trust that I’ll be on top of it as soon as the phone is released. I don’t have a timeline for the release of this model yet, as usual, and Net10 isn’t tipping its hand either.
Further, I don’t know whether it will be Net10 only, or if we might also see the EX124g also for TracFone and/or Straight Talk. As I’ve said in other places, though, I am surprised that Straight Talk has waited this long to release another touch-screen device after the Samsung Finesse proved to be so very popular. Perhaps the Motorola EX124g is that touch-screen device people will be looking for on Straight Talk.
I was pleasantly surprised by the low cost of the LG 800g, and I am hopeful that the EX 124g will be similarly priced – hopefully well under $100. Also, here a list of expected features based on FCC filings and other information:
- 3.2-inch touch screen display
- 3.0 megapixel camera with video recording
- Music player (as well as Mpeg4 video playback)
- FM Radio
- MicroSD card slot
Just like the LG 800g, this will be a GSM-based device, operating on network coverage provided by AT&T and T-Mobile. At this point, the big differences between the two touch-screens, based on the tech specs alone, are a higher-resolution camera and FM radio on the Motorola. Another big question mark is how easy it might be to add Java apps to the Moto, as I’ve already heard of people adding a handful of useful apps to the 800g.
That’s all I’ve got for now, but rest assured that I’ll get to work on a full Motorola EX124g review as soon as the phone comes out. When I do, I’ll publish the reviews on my blog, and also update this page with links to any further info I find about this phone.
