Motorokr E6 is the first Motorola handset in India to offer Music ID and Screen 3 applications. Music ID is a Song Identification service that enables a user to identify the artist and album information of songs being played in the immediate surroundings. When the user captures music being played on the handset, the application sends this information to a server over GPRS, to match the song with its existing library and transmits relevant information back to the user. Screen 3 is a live news and information streaming service, which can stream live feeds into a handset while user has the option to get brief information about the feed or get full stories on the handset.

With Motorokr E6, Motorola claims to have created the thinnest, slickest entertainment PDA ever. Other features include a super-sized 2.4" 240x320 TFT Touch Window screen, a first in a mobile handset, which allows users complete access to any of the E6's functions in seconds. The model also features a 2 mega-pixel camera with 8x digital zoom, 3.5mm stereo headphone jack, dedicated music keys, and a removable SD card memory slot. CIF and QVGA video capture for up to 5 hours; full screen video playback, integrated MP3 player with dedicated music keys and built-in FM radio, PDA featuring Business Card Reader, POP3 e-mail, Document Viewer to view PDF, Microsoft Word, Excel, PPT are some of its other features.

Representatives say MOTOROKR E6's handwriting recognition software is the fastest way to enter text for Indian users and can be used with any of the E6’s productivity tools.
