Motorola W315 at Verizon
Verizon Wireless today began carrying the Motorola W315 as one of its basic phones. The handset is meant to bring the aesthetic of the PEBL to a simpler model. The phone eschews a camera, Bluetooth, and many of the other features that add to the cost of most phones and is notable mainly for its relatively rich network abilities, maintaining instant messaging as well as basic Web browsing. Verizon offers the W315 for only $30 when paired with a two-year service plan.
