While the rest of us Moto-heads wait to get our hands on the Motorola ROKR E8 musicphone, Academy Award nominees will be getting first crack at the ROKR E8’s haptic-feedback, touch-sensitive keypad and “Omega Wheel.”
Actors and directors up for a potential Oscar-win will be getting their as-yet-unreleased Motorola ROKR E8 in a custom Red (female) or Blue (male) faux-iguana skin box adorned with each nominees’ name and Oscar category. They’ll also be getting a pair of Motorola S9 HD Bluetooth headphones.
Aside from its appearance at the Oscars, Motorola has not confirmed when they’ll be shipping the Motorola ROKR E8. But, Moto launched the RIZR Z3 shortly after it made its rounds as an Oscar gift. We may just be seeing the Motorola ROKR E8 sooner than later (and don’t discount Mobile World Congress 2008 as a potential announcement-event).
