Guardian gives the new ROKR phone a big “pffft”


Lost in the huzzahs about the new iPod Nano is the essential suckitude of the ROKR phone from Motorola that runs iTunes. The Guardian has a good piece about why this wildly hyped phone is a whole lotta nothing.

Also, apparently the software’s already been hacked, and you can install it on other Motorola phones. Since I have a V635, I might try to install it myself, though I’d never use the phone as anything but a potable communication device.
