ROKR E6 premieres in China

Motorola's long-awaited upgrade to the ROKR line, the E6, is now being distributed in China. The primary feature of the phone is a 2.4-inch QVGA touchscreen, which is unusual for devices below the smartphone level. The E6 also has a full-sized SD card slot, allowing it to store up to 2GB of music. Motorola has jettisoned iTunes for the phone, however, and so is using RealPlayer to handle MP3, MPEG4, AAC+, WAV, and RealAudio files. A2DP Bluetooth stereo is supported and there are dedicated playback buttons on the side. Other notable features of the E6 include a 2-megapixel cameraphone, handwriting recognition, a document viewer, and barcode and business card scanners.

While the phone is only being sold in China the the moment, American users may be able to take advantage of it through the T-Mobile network, since its been upgraded after the FCC filing to support the GSM 900 and 1800 bands. The phone is selling for 4,280 yuan ($545) at retail.
