Motorola Rival offers QWERTY, touch, visual voicemail

Motorola introduced the new Motorola Rival messaging phone today for Verizon Wireless, offering a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard, “touch key” interface and visual voicemail.

The candybar phone, which is available today in a silver-and-red or purple-and-black finish, is intended for the multimedia-minded who aren’t ready to pony up the cost and data plan commitment of a true smartphone.

It’s e-mail and IM-ready, and offers smartphone-like features such as touchscreen dialing, IM-style threaded text messaging, a 2 megapixel cameraphone, emoticon support, GPS navigation, visual voicemail and, of course, a sideways-sliding, backlit full QWERTY keyboard.

(The phone has Motorola’s usual good attention to fit and finish and feels solid. I’ll post my full review of it later today on this blog, so keep your eyes peeled.)

Full specs:

* Backlit QWERTY keyboard for faster messaging; keyboard lights up either characters, numbers or symbols based on entry mode
* Holds up to 500 text messages in inbox and outbox
* 2.0 megapixel camera
* 3.5 mm headset jack and up to 8 GB optional removable memory (microSD)
* AOL Instant Messenger, Windows Messenger and Yahoo! Messenger with Mobile IM
* Mobile Email allows access to popular e-mail services such as Yahoo!, Hotmail, AOL and Windows Live
* Supports Verizon Wireless’ V CAST Music with Rhapsody service for DRM-free music ($14.99/mo.)
* Supports VZ Navigator for audible turn-by-turn directions ($2.99/mo.)
* Visual Voice Mail allows users to view, delete, reply, listen to and forward voice mail messages without having to listen to prior messages or voice instructions ($2.99/mo.)

The Rival is available today in Verizon stores or on Verizon’s website for $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a two-year contract. (You’ll receive the rebate in the form of a debit card.)

Mike Tyson marries in Vegas, two weeks after daughter's death

LAS VEGAS (AP)—Boxer Mike Tyson has married for a third time, two weeks after his 4-year-old daughter died in a tragic treadmill accident.

The owner of the La Bella Wedding Chapel at the Las Vegas Hilton hotel-casino told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the former heavyweight champion and his bride, Lakiha Spicer, exchanged vows Saturday in a short, private ceremony.

Chapel owner Shawn Absher says the couple wed about 10 p.m. after arriving at the hotel from the Clark County marriage bureau in a chapel-owned limousine.

County marriage records in Las Vegas show the 42-year-old Tyson and 32-year-old Spicer got a marriage license about 30 minutes before their ceremony.

Tyson’s daughter Exodus died in May. The girl suffocated after she either slipped or put her head in the loop of a cord hanging under a treadmill’s console in her Phoenix home. Tyson’s agent, Harlan Werner, told the AP that Spicer is not Exodus’ mother.

Tyson and Spicer, a resident of suburban Henderson, asked for a simple ceremony with nothing special, Absher said.

“They just wanted to say the vows and be married,” he said. “It was very sincere.”

Tyson was previously married to actress Robin Givens in 1988 and Monica Turner in 1997.

His first marriage ended after one year after Givens filed for divorce and said in a nationally televised interview that she was afraid of Tyson. His marriage to Turner lasted five years.

Tyson and Spicer seemed very in love, Absher said.

“They were very heartwarming, and I think they really do love each other,” Absher said. “He seemed happy—and his life’s been up and down.”

Tyson last boxed competitively in 2005.

Magic stun Lakers 108-104, trim deficit to 2-1

ORLANDO, Florida (June 10) - The Orlando Magic stormed back into contention in the NBA Finals by knocking off the Los Angeles Lakers 108-104 on Tuesday, trimming the deficit in their best-of-seven series to 2-1.

Dwight Howard and Rashard Lewis each scored 21 points to lead the Magic, who set a record in the championship round by connecting on nearly 63 percent of their

"Tonight we played more speed, more energy on the offensive end," said Magic point guard Rafer Alston, who scored 20 points. "We were able to get down the floor, push it, a lot of pick and roll, which is our game.

"The bad thing is we shot 62 and a half percent and almost lost the game, so we've got to find a way to defend these guys."

The Magic squandered a nine-point lead midway through the fourth quarter but held on for their first victory of an NBA Finals series.

"I've said it throughout the season and throughout these playoffs, the one thing that you can't question with our team is their resilience in situations like that, whether it's from game to game, minute to minute, our team will keep playing," a delighted Magic coach Stan Van Gundy told reporters.

Two foul shots by Lakers forward Pau Gasol with 2:41 left tied the score at 99-99 but a jam by Mickael Pietrus and a foul shot by Alston gave the Magic a 102-99 lead.

With the Lakers trailing 104-102 Kobe Bryant committed a costly turnover and then fouled Pietrus, who sank two free throws with 28.7 left to clinch the Magic victory.

"It was disappointing," said Bryant, last year's Most Valuable Player who is looking for his fourth championship ring. "I'm used to coming through in those situations, the team trusts me to come through in those situations, and it just didn't happen tonight."

Bryant played his worst game of the series, hitting only 11 of 25 shots while misfiring on half of his 10 free throw attempts. He also committed an uncharacteristic four turnovers.
