"Why does this phone has such a powerfull processor????"
because it's a powerful multi-media device.
the Texas Instruments 2420 (or TI-2420) is the same ARM processor used in nokia's new N800 internet tablet and if not the very same one found in E90 and iPhone, it will be in the same league. when you turn the screen sideways in landscape mode, it will be like video on an iPod since they both do video at 30 frames per second at the same screen resolution.
some highlights from the review i posted earlier.
"Video can be played back at up to 30 frames per second and in the demo I saw playback was crisp and smooth. Motorola expect consumers to fit up to 10 feature length films on to a 4GB microSD card. Motorola will be shipping a 512MB microSD memory card with the phone that will include a full movie as a demonstrator of the film playback capabilities."
"The Z8 runs the latest version of UIQ - 3.1, which was announced last week. It is the first UIQ non-touch screen device and the display was nice and bright (and shouldn't suffer too much in sunlight). All the UI interaction is carried out via softkeys. The demo phone I saw showed an extremely slick and speedy interface; given some of the early software problems with Sony Ericsson’s UIQ phones, this was very impressive."
the camera and other specs are not pristine but this is a experimental phone like the RAZR V3x. it's the first product of motorola's european Sendo team they acquired a couple years ago and they will have a few more UIQ products on the horizon using this same ARM processor and architecture with better specs.
this phone is 2 years in the making and when they started, a 2mp camera was king. now they can churn out new products faster with better specs since they have RIZR Z8 as a blueprint. all they'll have to do is make it thinner, add a better camera, etc.
you probably see an improved RIZR Z8 by summertime.
very well balanced phone,...
i have wifi in my imate, but i hardly get to use it, it drains the battery out real fast, also the phone looks sleek and sexy, it'll definately get a second look, like most of the moto's now a days do,..
Well if you say so then
Having a 210g comunicator (e90) its more confortable than a 112g phone?
Having a clasic style communicator its better than having new desing?
Having a standard procesor its batter than one of the most powerful ones?
Having just 2GB of storage (e90 and n95) its better than 4GB?
@kDnq yes it support 4GB microSD
Real nice battery time! This phone looks so freaking sexy, cept the green light around da edges, does any1 know where i can get a full user comment on this phone?
@ Ravi Kumar
Same goes for Nokia and SE fanboys, if you don`t like Motos go and buy phones that you like. Don`t compare them to Motorolas you hate so much.
well, guyz if u like this phone it then just go n buy it, don't compare this with Nokia or Sony Ericsson or other fones
Go Hex_Hack, tell them the truth.
Anyway, can this handle that new 4gb MiSD?
Also, why's the cam crap? What's the lense?
I mean, it has 8x zoom, though I don't care about it, but that's far. My SEs can only go 4x and I can zoom up around 80m.
@the one who said that nokia has already beated the phone
Well before making your statemen you should think about other features like LIFESTYLE
Did you considered that nearly all Nokias are in some way just HUGE for the mayority of people?
Did you considered that nearly all Nokias are in some way not appealing to the mayority of people?
Did you considered that this phone in some ways have better features thant Nokia?
Did you considered that nearly all Nokias doesn't have a really innovating form factor?
Did you considered the TI multimedia procesor?
Did you considered HSDPA?
Did you considered the microSD HC 4GB suport?
And some other things like weight, size, display quality etc.
Think about them and then make a comparrison and chose a winner (if any).
when you gonna understand this that nokia is a piece of crap? look at this phone! motorola proof that it is very easy to beat POKIA!!!
they Said " Motorola the worst camera in the world! no OS! Low Quality sound! " nokia is just advertising! and not PERFORMANCE! how many phones that this company seed in market! they are truly stupid that they think can beat Motorola!
what a waste of a good hardware and OS, and they put a crappy quality 2mpx
You don't know that yet. I mean, everyone thought you could take a profile picture with the W850, but you can't. (btw it's also 3G)
I'm not asking how many MP3s can you put in, I'm asking if it can support the 4gb card that's coming out within the year.
To the person who really thinks this is not a good phone, how about looking at the reasons why this phone was designed the way it was.
It's completely better then the LG Chocolate in many ways, and takes care of the problem with slider phones by curving to the shape of the human head. Unless you have a long ugly face, which means you won't be needing this feature, I don't know why you're all upset about the design of this phone.
how can you ask how many mp3s it stores, how big is the memory card you gonna buy for it (same as any other phone) will support upto 4Gb tho. of course you will be able to take profile with front camera.
BTW ANYONE CLAIMING THEY HAVE ONE BULL**IT ITS NOT OUT YET
to add to that, i think this phone should have been called the brokeback . it's so weird looking! how can anyone find this phone appealing ? it looks like someone dropped it and now wants you to buy it
i think this phone is so retarded looking, no matter what color it comes in... yuk! it's like someone karate chopped it from the back where it then started to glow... like an emergency stick. honestly, you're better off dropping dimes in a pay phone... what were they thinking? geez
