I’m not sure what to say about this phone.. I kind of like it, but then I kind of don’t. It’s an interesting design that’s for sure, but I could do without the Snoop Dogg part of it, rap just isn’t my thing… It’s the MOTO VE440 limited edition with artwork and pre-loaded with content from Mister Cartoon and it comes with two exclusive track from Snoop Dogg..

MetroPCS Communications, Inc. , in partnership with SA Studios Global, today announced the launch of its second Sanctioned by Mister Cartoon mobile phone, the MOTO(TM) VE440.

Exclusive to MetroPCS, VE440 featuring the Mister Cartoon design comes in a black and chrome color combination and offers something for everyone with two interchangeable back covers featuring Mister Cartoon’s distinctive, custom artwork. In addition to the unique exterior, consumers will receive a 1GB MicroSD memory card featuring two previously unreleased full-length tracks by multi-platinum, award winning recording artist, Snoop Dogg. Pre-loaded phone content includes exclusive wallpapers and ringtones from Mister Cartoon and Snoop Dogg.

Mister Cartoon is a renowned tattoo artist, car customizer, illustrator and designer and has worked with numerous entertainment icons including Eminem, Beyonce and film producer Brian Grazer. Mister Cartoon most recently worked with television star George Lopez to help create the branding and identity for Lopez’s new talk show, "Lopez Tonight."

"It’s great to collaborate with MetroPCS again, and we are very excited about the opportunity to work with Motorola on this handset," said Mister Cartoon, creative director of SA Studios Global. "The mobile phone has become so much more than just a communication device; it’s a way for people to express themselves. The design I created, along with the cool features and music that Snoop Dogg added will allow fans to show people who they are and what they’re passionate about."

The handset will be available exclusively at select MetroPCS locations and online at www.metropcs.com/sanctioned. A portion of the revenue generated from the handset sales will go directly to funding community art centers, outreach programs for at-risk youth and art supplies for schools in many of the MetroPCS markets.

"Our customers want their mobile phones to express their personality, and our partnership with Mister Cartoon allows us to meet that desire with a unique, graphically intense mobile device that speaks volumes about its owners," said Phil Terry, senior vice president of corporate marketing for MetroPCS. "After the success of the first Mister Cartoon offering last year, we are excited to continue our partnership with him and SA Studios and fully expect this device to echo the success of the previous device."

MetroPCS recently introduced its Wireless for All(SM) family of tax and regulatory-fee inclusive service plans. Starting at $40, the plans provide consumers with unlimited talk, text and Web service and feature additional plans with added services in the $45 to $60 price range.
