Motorola, Inc. today unveiled a new music-centered handset for the Americas market, plus two new phones for Asia.

A new mobile phone called the Motorola E725 enables music downloads over an EV-DO network or straight from a PC. Integrated dual-speakers, stereo headset port and advanced 3D stereo surround sound, as well as music keys, 5-band graphic equalizer, audio synchronized rhythm lights and up to 2 GB of storage should make the phone attractive to music enthusiasts. The E725 will be available in the Americas by the end of the year.

Another new phone, the Motorola E680i, has more than two gigabytes of storage. It supports stereo audio wirelessly via Bluetooth products like the Motorola HT820 Bluetooth stereo headphones. The E680i also provides plug-and-play desktop synchronization and music transfers between handset and PC. A "Music Store" enables users to buy music for downloading. It supports MP3, WMA, RealAudio/Video, MIDI, WAV, AAC and other formats and sports a built-in FM radio receiver, video capture/playback capabilities, handwriting recognition and e-mail. The Motorola E680i will be available in the Asia-Pacific region next month.

The Motorola E685 brings "high fashion to high fidelity," according to a company press release. The phone features an mp3 player with stereo headset jack, VGA camera with photo and video capture, and CDMA 1x data capability. The phone will be available for the Chinese market by mid-summer.
