Size wise the e680 looks bigger than it really is. This is probably due to the fact that most people perceive the display to be bigger than it actually is.
There is a navigation pad and 4 unlabelled launcher buttons on the front in addition to 3 buttons on the sides (2 volume buttons on the left and a camera button/voice command on the right).
The e680 wasn't really meant to be used from the command line so you won't find a lot in terms of editors, c compilers or misc.
Motorola A760 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (271 words)
The Motorola A760 is a Linux-based camera equipped mobile telephone ('cell phone') developed at Motorola's laboratory in China and released in the Chinese market on February 16, 2003.
The A760 is particularly significant in that Motorola was a founding member of the Symbian OS initiative (a software platform competing against Linux, Windows Mobile and Palm OS for mobile phones) and in spite of this, used Linux instead of Symbian for the phone.
Other newer Motorola phone models which use Linux are the A768 and the E680.
