Motorola announces touchscreen Krave ZN4 for Verizon

Motorola Krave ZN4

Motorola launched the Motorola Krave ZN4 flip touchscreen phone yesterday. Boasting two layers of touch- on the interactive clear flip outside and the full touch-screen inside, it is headed to Verizon Wireless.

Krave puts fun at your fingertips with the latest entertainment and phone features from Verizon Wireless, many of which are accessible with one touch, even when the phone is closed.

The Krave is very similar to the Motorola Ming which has been sold in Asia for a few years now. It comes with a clear flip that opens onto a touchscreen display. A number of features, including mobile television, can also be managed simply by pressing a finger on the clear cover, eliminating the need to open the phone.

The Motorola Krave ZN4 comes with CDMA 1X EVDO 800/1900 connectivity, a 2.8-inch touchscreen display with haptic feedback, 130MB of user memory, GPS, Bluetooth, a 2MP camera, a microSDHC card slot (up to 8GB) and a 3.5mm headphone jack . It also supports Verizon services such as V CAST Mobile TV, V CAST Video, V CAST Music with Rhapsody, VZ Navigator and Visual Voice Mail (available in different access packages).

Verizon is offering the Motorola Krave ZN4 for USD$149.99 after a USD$50 mail-in rebate and a new two-year customer agreement.
