It's a touchscreen phone. It's a flip phone. It's a touchscreen phone and a flip phone.
At an online media event this morning, Motorola released their rumored new flip phone, the Krave ZN4, to be sold exclusively through Verizon Wireless.
The CDMA EV-DO 800/1900 MHz phone has a clear flip cover over the actual phone, allowing users to access touch features while the flip is still down. The phone comes with an accelerometer, like in Apple's iPhone 3G, and allows for video viewing in landscape view. Also like the iPhone, a digital QWERTY keyboard appears when the phone is turn horizontally. It also has Verizon's OpenWave HTML browser.
Besides some of the standard Verizon features like V Cast TV, Rhapsody Music and VZ Navigator GPS Service, the phone has digital voicemail service, where users can pause and rewind messages. It also has a basic email service that has access to Yahoo, AOL, Windows Live and other POP/IMAP clients. It has a 2 megapixel camera, an external microSD slot with availability for up to 8GB of memory (130MB comes standard) and stereo Bluetooth.
The phone is priced at $149.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a two-year service contract. The phone retails for $349.99.
