Why is this news? To address that question without feeling like I’m answering my editor, I’ll just point you to an earlier post we made that said the Motorola Aura can’t be sold on eBay or anywhere else. In other words, the Aura is, and always will be, a Motorola exclusive.
And that’s exactly what they’re saying about it over on the Motorola web site. The proud words “Moto Store Exclusive” are printed over the handset itself in pictures.
As earlier announced, it comes with a circular, 16 million color display that’s protected by a 62-carat sapphire crystal coating. Other features include a 2-megapixel fixed focus camera, internal quad band GSM antenna, 2GB of on-board memory and microUSB connectivity. Oh, and don’t forget that stainless steel housing.
It costs $1,999.99 and a lot of blind faith. Available now with free shipping from the Moto Store. Of course, you could always just go for other cheap alternatives…
