How Many Ways Are There To Say The ROKR Sucks?

From the moment it was released, it was pretty obvious that the Motorola iTunes phone was a stinker. Apple’s made it clear it doesn’t think too highly of it, and reports say it’s not selling well. BusinessWeek says a “surprising” 250,000 ROKRs were shipped to wireless carriers around the world — but that’s quite a bit different than consumers actually buying 250,000 of them. They’ve put together a crack team, though, to explain why the ROKR sucks from a design perspective, and it’s pretty much the same reasons as before: too much Motorola, not enough Apple is the basic verdict. Ugly phone, bad UI, stupid song limit — it should be pretty clear by now why the thing’s not too appealing.
