The phone comes preloaded with many AT&T specific apps including : AlllSport GPS, AT&T Maps, AT&T Music, AT&T Navigator, AT&T Wi-Fi Hotspots, Mobile Banking, MobiTV, MusicID, Where and YPMobile.  And for some crazy reason, Yahoo is the default search provider throughout the phone instead of Google.

Other features include 3.1 inch touchscreen,  5 megapixel autofocus camera with flash and camcorder capability and HSPA 7.2, WiFi, GPS  and Bluetooth connectivity. The MOTOBLUR interface also brings in integration with many of the popular social networking platforms.
