Motorola W385

From Legacy Portable Computing Wiki
Motorola W385 (Telus Mobility)

The Motorola W385 is a slim entry-level CDMA flip phone released in 2007.

It was available on Verizon, U.S. Cellular, Boost Mobile, Qwest Wireless, and MetroPCS in the US, as well as Telus and Koodo Mobile in Canada. The Verizon variant supports Chaperone, a service for remotely locating the device, as well as VZ Navigator. The Qwest Wireless version has a newer version of the Moto software with Java MIDP 2.0 support.

The W385 is similar in design to the Motorola RAZR and KRZR. It is covered on its front and rear face with a black rubber material, and also comes in pink without the rubber. The phone's small outer display is set in a mirrored frame just below the camera lens. The navigation keys and keypad buttons take cues from the KRZR, but instead of metal, the controls are covered in a soft-touch material similar to the phone's exterior covering. The W385's outer dimensions are very similar to the KRZR too.
