On any other day, the EDGE enabled MOTOMING would certainly garner some attention. But today just happens to be the day the iPhone was announced – and quite frankly, everything else just looks like a sack full of testicles at this point.
Still, the MOTOMING has some cool features so its worth breaking down some specs:

The MOTOMING is also the first mobile device to feature a dual language “talking” dictionary that will enable users to enter a word in a native language and the on-board handwriting recognition will analyze the text and the device will “speak” the word in a foreign language.
No pricing details have been released yet, but you can expect to see the MOTOMING by the end of Q1 2007.
