ROKR Promises From Motorola

Admitting the fact the the original ROKR phone was not only bulky and unattractive, but limited in space for downloaded songs, Ron Garriques, the head of Motorola's mobile unit, has finally stood up and made some promises for the next generation. First of all, the next ROKR will be slimmer and sleeker for sure (he even showed a phone that looked a lot more like a RAZR than a ROKR, with a megapixel camera and stereo headsets to make his point). And no carrier has to stick to just iTunes. They can put whatever music software they want in the new phone.

"Any time a carrier wants iTunes they can have it," Garriques told investors at the UBS Global Communications Conference.


Lesson learned. We forgive you Motorola, for now.
