You are the only one here that says that the 8MP one will be released in October. I think where ever you read that news from that says 'release in October' is actually 'will be announced in October' just like how GSMArena use the word release when its actually just being announced. But I hope the 8MP one does get released in October though.

although it is only a beta unit, the photos seem awfully noisy... hopefully this will be fixed

The good thing about the ZN5 is that it is not moto's flagship phone. They will make an 8mp phone and should be out this October w/c looks like my next phone.

Linux 3G Devices exist. Look in the page off LiMo(linux Foundation)-> Handsets. Ex: NTT DoCoMo FOMA™ 905iÁ (by NEC).
I don't know, but a version 3G isn't a dream.

first of all N95 and N82 both are smart phone with 5MP camera and it is not a dedicated camera phone but still does a good job unlike SE cyber-shot Moto ZN5 which are dedicated camera phone but nowhere closer to a standalone camera People saying N95 looser may be living in sahara desert N95 Sales where higher than iphone moto present at this time by the way i love Moto as much as SE, Nokia, Samsung etc each brand have some good thing and some bad just happy to see Moto back in action.

the zn5 looks to be a pretty little number and lets hope that the camera lives up to the kodak name

1. The ZN5 is targeted mainly to Asian markets where 3G is not that popular, as of now (except the Philippines maybe)
2. The Linux-Java OS cannot support 3G, but it's better than having to stick with the old Synergy and the difficult Symbian UIQ.

SAMSUNG using their own camera
