A ROKR that will actually rock?
After hearing rumor after rumor, the ROKR E2 is finally here. After the complete failure of the ROKR E1, they have corrected some of the original mistakes. The new ROKR boasts a beautiful 2 inch, 240 x 320 TFT (262k colors) screen, 1.3 MP camera (with flash), iRadio, and finally a SD slot. It also includes Bluetooth connectivity for either a Bluetooth headset, or even a pair of Bluetooth headphones. What I'm most excited about is that Motorola has finally seen the error of their ways and put a standard 3.5mm headphone jack (so no more using weird adapters or the stock ear buds). The new ROKR will be shown off at CES and most likely a be highlight. With its new 2 GB capacity (via SD) and a way to store more songs without voiding your warranty, this is truly worth picking up when it hits shelves in the first half of 2006.
