Motorola Roadster retail package
ntIf you want to talk on the phone while in your car then you need a headset or speakerphone and Motorola has a new one to check out called the Motorola Roadster. If you have an Android 2.2 device, then you will also get advanced features such as audible incoming text messages and the ability to respond via voice-to-text.
ntMake sure to check out my full review on ZDNet Mobile Gadgeteer.
Front of the Motorola Roadster
ntThe Roadster front is dominated by a fabric cover over the loud speaker. There are buttons along the bottom to control the speakerphone too.
Front bottom buttons
ntThe buttons on the front are used for music control, volume/FM tune, and FM/speakerphone toggle.
Top control buttons
ntThe buttons along the top are for mute, call, and voice dial. They perform a bit differently on specific handsets so try them out to see how it controls your phone.
Back of the Motorola Roadster
ntThere is a visor clip on the back of the Roadster to easily secure it in your car.
Side view of the Roadster
ntIn this side view you can see the visor clip, power button, and standard microUSB port used to charge up the Roadster.
Included charging cable
ntYour Roadster comes with a car charging cable and a detailed guide.
Roadster in hand
ntThe Motorola Roadster fits in your hand and is not too large.
Nokia N8 and Motorola Roadster
ntThis photo shows how a Nokia N8 compares in size to the Motorola Roadster. The N8 pairs up well with the Roadster and the buttons provide good control over the N8.
