Verizon Wireless rolls out Motorola W755


I seriously wonder what the folks at Motorola are doing, as releasing phones such as the W755 over Verizon Wireless isn’t going to win them any points with the consumers anytime soon, and it looks as though time is running out for the Big M as they suffer from their own success – the RAZR. It has been a fair number of years since the RAZR hit the market, and since then many variations as well as newer models based on the original design have rolled out, but none of them truly embodied the spirit of the original RAZR, causing Motorola to lose market share to its other rivals while seeing its stock price plummet just like how the greenback is compared to other major currencies around the world. If you don’t think that the W755 won’t be able to save Motorola, why not head on after the jump to read up on its rather mediocre specifications list.

Some of the features and capabilities found on the MOTO W755 include :-

  • Music player for formats AAC, AMR NB, MIDI, MP3 and WMA V9
  • Create and manage playlists with Windows Media Player 11
  • Stereo Bluetooth wireless technology
  • 2.5 mm headset jack (way to go, Motorola *sarcasm*)
  • 1.3 megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom (I thought we have moved on to a minimum of 2 megapixels by now)
  • 1.9″ internal display
  • V CAST Video – download or stream video from the best names in news, sports, entertainment and more
  • VZ Navigator-capable – get audible maps, turn-by-turn directions and location information
  • Text, picture and video messaging
  • Mobile IM and chat capabilities
  • Mobile Web-capable – customizable, enhanced wireless access to the latest in news, sports, weather and more
  • Media Center-capable – download games, ringtones, wallpapers and more
  • microSD card memory slot with up to 4 GB support with an optional memory card
  • Phonebook with up to 1,000 contacts

The MOTO W755 handset will retail for $69.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and a new two-year contract.

Seems no one ever has anything nice to say about American industry.
I have used Motorola phones for 12 years now and they have always been cutting edge and reliable.
I own the 775 and the razor maxxVe and they are very capable phones.
Crisp and clear and I pair it with Motorola bluetooth headphones when I workout.
The person who wrote this review is a poor writer. The writer uses weasel’ words and passive voice. “it looks as though ” and ” seriously wonder what the folks at Motorola are doing”. Weasel words!

I don’t know who pays this editor for his bad reviews
but if he is not being payed, he’s on crack. My new w755 is pretty kick ass. Nice color, good battery,
great display, relatively thin. All in all a great phone. My only complaints, the USB port is annoying to open (short nails) and the camera could have been more powerful, but hey, if you wanted professional quality photoes you shouldn’t be using a cellphone…there are those dedicated “camera things” you know jackass.

Hooray for my new phone!
