Motorola and Verizon Wireless have goodies for us: “the first interactive clear flip, full-touch phone”, Motorola Krave ZN4, which is now available. Formerly know as Blaze, this handset is Motorola’s first touch phone that hits the US market. Its design reminds us of the Ming era and unless you’re planning to buy a BlackBerry Pearl 8220, this is the clamshell touchscreen phone for you.
Krave ZN4 features one interior display (a 2.8 inch TFT touchscreen with 240 x 400 pixels resolution), that can be used even if the handset’s lid is closed, thanks to an interactive clear flip cover. Come to think of it, you might consider this clear flip some sort of “secondary touchscreen” (240 x 320 pixel resolution).
Among the phone’s specs, what’s worth mentioning is the 1X/EV-DO connectivity (800/1900 MHz), GPS with VZ Navigator support, virtual QWERTY keypad with haptic feedback and a 3.5mm headset jack. As for the services offered by Verizon, ZN4 supports V CAST Music with Rhapsody, V CAST Mobile TV, V Cast Video.
Also, the new Motorola supports Bluetooth 2.0, email and IM, uses a HTML browser and a 2 megapixel camera with digital and video recording. ZN4 comes with USB and a memory expansion slot (card of up to 8GB). Its battery has a life of up to 260 minutes (talk time) or 400 hours, in standby mode.
This handset can be yours for $149.99 plus a two-year Verizon contract and a $50 mail-in rebate.
