Introducing the Motorola MPx

Rolling the essence of different products into one stylish yet functional device is barely revolutionary in a period of time where convergence is the buzzword that's most commonly used. Though cliché, convergence is an indispensable route of progression and has set in motion the birth of numerous products citing convenience and a better lifestyle as bywords that coincidentally are commonly used catch phrases for marketing collaterals as well. Consumer electronics is probably the biggest category where the most illustrious instances of convergence can be found. That being said, one of the latest convergence boasting gadgets to cross our paths is the Motorola MPx.

Technical speaking, the MPx is a Windows powered smartphone housing a tri-band GSM radio, WiFi, Bluetooth, an onboard digital camera and a memory expansion slot. You would be right if you think the MPx is just another uninspiring smartphone to grace our lives, however, the form factor and usability are actually quite innovative.
