Motorola E398 Fill your life with sound! Surround yourself with more mobile music than ever thanks to the E398’s full MP3 playback capability. Pump it out through the built-in 22khz speakers – or keep it to yourself with the stunning stereo surround headset. And snap your surroundings day or night – there’s a built-in camera complete with flash.

Here is the features:
-Excellent sound quality (MP3 Player with 3D Surround Sound).
-Full MP3 music listening, and MP3 and MIDI ringers
-Stereo Headset Jack
-3D Surround Sound
-Expandable memory card (64MB Built in). Good feature as music lovers such as me can be kept company during long hours in transit 🙂 – See my previous post about DietMP3
-Nice “feel the ring” kind of speakers, which have good frequency (22khz) for a phone.
-Supports 3gp and mp4 playback.
-Its got all the essential technological features such as :

  • -Class 10 Gprs (2U/4D).
  • -WAP 2.0 (WSP/HTTP 1.1, WTCP/IP, xHTML Mobile Profile, WCSS, Cookies, WTLS).
  • -Bluetooth.
  • -IM Wireless Village (Instant Messenger)
  • -Email: POP3, SMTP, IMAP4.
  • -USB Port connectivity (Act as USB Flash Drive)

-Camera quality is decent. Not to forget the flash (which doubles up for a nice flashlight).
-Screen size (176×220) and depth (65K colors) is really cool. (though a NOKIA 6600 phone screen looks bigger than e398, its actually smaller (176×208), the “lookin big” factor is due to bloated pixels).
-Nice customizable menus.
-Smart key is useful.
-PIM functionality with Picture Called ID
-Sufficient phonebook capacity (1000 nos.)

But the most interesting part from motorola is you can HACK the phone. You can do anything to your phone. Even change the whole system such upgrade to V series.
