The design, colors, and features of the Motorola PEBL deliver a compelling experience for those who want stand-out style and communication options."
Blending style and value, the Motorola PEBL Colors combine Motorola’s innovative design with a set of sophisticated features including Bluetooth® wireless technology* and media tools including an embedded VGA camera with video record and playback. With independent Advanced Voice Recognition and quad-band technology for global connectivity**, the Motorola PEBL Colors ensure consumers are as connected - and stylish - as they want to be.
