Motorola Evoke Giveaway


We are so excited for Christmas this year! The fine Motorola folks have been so kind to sponsor this giveaway and I thought it was the perfect giveaway to kick off the season! Happy shopping from All American Mommy and Motorola! Please be sure to check the Holiday Gift Guide weekly!

Motorola Evoke™ QA4
Motorola Evoke™ QA4 is designed to help you stay connected simply and seamlessly with your social circles and access the information you want, when you want it. With a full touch-screen, integrated widgets and real Web browsing1, this intuitive phone keeps you plugged in to your world, on your terms.

Messaging Made Easy
Evoke is a chameleon in every sense. Turn it on its side for a full touch-screen QWERTY keyboard; turn it upright to reveal the slide-out keypad that delivers the traditional phone capabilities you rely on. Messaging icons help keep you organized by displaying the number of new messages and displaying SMS and emails in a conversational style1. Predictive texting with smart auto correction and email access1 also makes connecting with friends easier.

Customize Your World
Integrated widgets1 allow you to customize Evoke with quick access to your favorite sites and real-time Web information from personalized RSS feeds1 such as weather, sports scores, stock reports, news headlines and more1. Share your world using a single touch from the home screen to upload videos and photos to popular sharing sites such as Picasa™1,2.

Touch and Go
Evoke makes it easy to connect, explore, communicate and create on the go. Touch the screen for instant access to a full HTML browser1 and use quick-start widgets to easily bring up popular sites such as MySpace and YouTube™1,2. Built-in integration with MySpace also lets you keep close tabs on friends and post instant updates to your profile in one easy step1. The intuitive touch-screen features an accelerometer for portrait or landscape display, and one-handed touch and drag capabilities.

Making Clear Calls is Simpler than Ever
Noise reduction technology enables you to lower background noise, even on busy streets. Intuitive calling features on the touch-screen, such as buttons for three-way calling, make it easy to connect with friends. Bluetooth® technology3 gives you the ability to keep in touch hands-free.

Certain mobile phone features are dependent on the capabilities and settings of your service provider’s network. Additionally, certain features may not be activated by your service provider, and/or their network settings may limit the feature’s functionality. Always contact your service provider about feature availability and functionality. All features, functionality and other product specifications are based upon the latest available information and are believed to be accurate; however such product specifications are subject to change without notice or obligation.
