I'm not sure about the Motophone, but my Samsung Alias 2 cellphone has an e-Ink keyboard and definitely seems to be backlit. This review (http://www.laptopmag.com/review/cell...g-alias-2.aspx) also mentions backlighting:

"The white keys are backlit, which makes the black text easier to read; and the buttons are soft and easy to type on."
