Finally the anticipated Tracfone Motorola EX124G has landed at Tracfone. The main talking point about this model is the sensor touch screen that works best with the included stylus. As you might be able to tell from the unboxing video this phone is somewhat hard to use as a "touch screen" using your hands. As said with the Ne10 version, if you like a stylus you're in luck! otherwise I guess this phone may not be for you.
Priced at $80 at Tracfone.com, it should be in stores soon.
Applications: The phone has Java installed and your able to purchase Java games and apps using the data connection. I did not see any way to install apps using USB, or the SD card however if we find a way we will let you know.
There are no apps installed by default, but there are a few proprietary built in apps like calculator, stopwatch and others as expected.
The phone feels light in the hand but appears to be a good quality build, very similar to the LG800G.
Overall the phone is a 4 out of 10, we wonder how long it will stay at this price, it is going to have to come down.
