Lowdown on MoJo

Motorola announced a videophone called Ojo (in fact they are distributing Worldgate’s product). It is sleek looking; uses H.264 coding with 30 frames per second. The interesting aspect is the pricing structure. So let us assume that it is a fine product, meets anybody’s expectation of a videophone. Let us also not pay attention to the initial price – is it $800 or $700? Last summer it was stated that it will be in the range of $500 to $600. But what I am focusing on is the statement that “users will also be required to pay a monthly service fee to enable use of the Ojo.” This is along the lines of other videophone services from others. I have already taken issue on this point. This time I am asking fellow bloggers who have mentioned this news item: Please explain why this is justified. If you can not, please spread the word to the consumers at large that there is no need for this fee and ask them not to go for it.

As one who blogged, and saw it, the PR team was vague about the carrier deals. They seemed to imply it would be with a VoIP player, but it could be a private deal too.

The price is way to high, when you know SightSpeed is out there already and nearly the same FPS with a Logitech cam.
