Motorola has launched the MOTORIZR Z8, described as a “fit-to-face” slider and optimised for the entertainment market.
The handset is Motorola’s first “kick slider”, a new design concept that matches the phone to the contours of your face. On the technical side, there’s HSDPA connectivity and 16 million colour 35x50mm QVGA full screen display, with video playback speeds of up to 30 frames per second.
And it’s Sky-friendly. Motorola’s partnership with Sky will allow users to access Sky’s mobile content services – on-demand clips plus to Sky’s range of live mobile TV services via Sky’s ‘Anytime’ application. In addition to its 90MB of internal memory, the device also supports expandable memory up to 4GB using MicroSD. There’s also stereo Bluetooth, a built-in music player, a 2MP digital camera with dedicated side camera key and MPEG-4 video recording.
The MOTORIZR Z8 will be available from April 2007.
