Motorola Evoke QA4 Cell Phone Offers Touch-Screen

With Motorola's Evoke QA4 cell phone, users can snap pictures, share video and generally keep in touch, which is helped along by a 2.8-inch sliding touch-screen. New mobile and wireless devices from LG, Nokia and Samsung have also been announced in the lead-up to CTIA.

Motorola on March 30 introduced the Evoke QA4, a cell phone offering means to very extroverted ends.
The Motorola Evoke QA4's 2.8-inch WQVGA full touch-screen slides up to reveal a keypad. Turned on its side, the touch-screen can also act as a virtual full-touch QWERTY keyboard, making it simpler to write longer text messages-which predictive text and instant messaging features will also encourage.
Choices also abound for making calls: Users can make calls using intuitive dialing features on the touch-screen, the slide-down keypad or a Bluetooth headset, since Evoke features stereo Bluetooth. Noise-reduction technology is also included for clearer calls.
The quad-band CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) phone comes with a 2-megapixel camera, 256MB of internal memory, a MicroSD slot, a GPS and a full HTML browser with intuitive browsing and built-in integration with MySpace. Users can also customize the home screen with widgets and personalized RSS feeds.
The Motorola Evoke QA4 will be available the second quarter of 2009; pricing is not yet available.
The announcement comes days before the opening of the CTIA Wireless show in Las Vegas. On March 30, AT&T also introduced new phone offerings from Samsung, LG and Nokia.
