Motorola Krave ZN4: I’m Not “Kraving” it
Here is yet another touchscreen phone that could have been interesting but that just isn’t: The Motorola Krave ZN4. It’s available now with Verizon Wireless for $149 (after $50 mail-in rebate).
The first thing to know about this flip-type phone is that it has only one screen but two touchscreens. When the phone is closed, you see the screen that is behind the flip cover because it is made of clear plastic. The flip cover is also touch sensitive so you can still access the main phone features even if the flip is closed.
I don’t see the real goal behind this. Why have a flip cover? There’s only the same single screen when it’s open or closed, and the only thing that the flip is used for is to change from one mode (phone features) to the other (multimedia features). Motorola should have made a normal non-flip phone instead of this. It would have also been slimmer.
Here are the main specs:
- 2.8 inch display (240×400 pixels)
- Weight 4.59 oz
- 0.75 inch thick
- Supports MicroSD cards up to 8GB
- 2.0 Megapixel camera (still and video)
- 260 minutes of talk time and 500 hrs on standby
- Supports visual voice mail
- Stereo Bluetooth
- HTML web browser
- 3.5mm headset jack (nice)
