“Motorola Inc. is set to unveil a mobile phone with full-motion video display and the means to play feature films on small removable storage cards, Chief Executive Ed Zander said on Wednesday,” Eric Auchard reports for Reuters.
MacDailyNews Take: Ooh, full-motion video! Amazing. On small removable storage cards, no less. How Sony-esque. Must be some sort Motorola of tribute to the ’90’s.
Auchard continues, “Speaking at the Software 2007 conference in Silicon Valley, Zander briefly described one of the several devices the world’s second-largest mobile phone maker has said it plans to announce at an event next Tuesday. ‘We are going to show a device next week,’ Zander told several hundred attendees of the business software conference, saying it would show 30 frames-a-second, full-motion video. ‘It is a media monster.'”
MacDailyNews Take: Wow, 30 frames-a-second video on a media monster? Stunning. Ed Zander gives Real’s Rob “Never Met a Doughnut I Didn’t Like” Glaser and Microsoft’s Steve “Brainwash My Kids and Elderly Uncles Not to Use Apple Products” Ballmer a run for their money in the “World’s Worst Tech CEO” race.
Auchard continues, “The new device would initially be targeted at the European market… ‘We are working with another company to deliver movies on SD cards. You can start watching unbelievable quality movies,’ Zander enthused.”
