The Motorola Z6

I've just bought a Motorola Z6, a Linux based, music oriented mobile phone.

There are some serious bugs in the phone. Trying to mount the phone as a usb mass storage device will not work at all in Linux. It has some problems in OS X, but is still usable after a few tries. I haven't been able to test in Win32 yet.

Also, the bundled S9 bluetooth stereo headset cuts in and out while playing music. This unfortunately this makes the headset useless for listening to music. :-(


Hopefully a firmware update will eventually solve these issues. Other aspects of the phone are great. The menus and navigation in general are very fast, and it has the most readable display in direct sunlight I've ever used.
