I hope Moto will make good use of this present global crisis to prevail. With Sony cutting about 16,000 workers worldwide, whoever makes the right strategy in sales & marketing will turn the table around. While the non-Moto fans used to say Moto's going down sometime ago, I would like to say where else can you go EXCEPT up. But for those companies that are SUPPOSED to be up there now, there's a chance they'll go down faster. You know the saying "what goes up must come down and what goes down must come up" - it's the Law of Physics. (wink wink, hopefully it applies here) LOL.
Stuart, 29 Dec 2008Thanks for the info. You know I'm a Moto fan and having read the cnet asia prizefighter award ... moreSorry for getting out of the topic about VE66 a bit, as even in my area the phone is not yet available. I do know the phone is available in mainland China for about US$400, though I do speculate my area will sell VE66 for no more than US$300 due to more competition from other brands.
I have been using my Zn5 for about 3 months now, and yet I have not taken more than 10 photos with the phone. I believe a phone is a phone and its main purpose should be for communication, everything else should be "extra".
I also believe a flip phone with Crystal Talk offers the best voice quality, even over bar phones with Crystal Talk. If a bar phone with Crystal Talk gets an A for voice quality, a flip phone with Crystal Talk should deserve A+, if not A++.
If you have an E8 and enjoys the music much, there might not be enough reason for you to buy Zn5.
Not sure if I mentioned I also got an V8 2GB recently...mainly for EDGE where one of the operator in HK offers unlimited GPRS for about US$15 per month. I found the reception, under the same network and location, outperforms my good old E2, which still works wonder as a "music" phone.
I am very happy by the fact that some people haven't turned their backs on Moto. I hope my country have had more MOTOROLA FANS as 100moto and Stuart who daily support Moto with their knowledge. And don't forget that i am in this game too!

Got a feeling (just a hunch) that present authorised Moto distributor is not putting enough efforts to promote the brand, there's another new Moto distributor came into the market, parallel importing Moto's accessories like bluetooth headset, charger and so on and they are also recognised & supported by the local Moto Service Centre too. I'm not surprise if this new distributor could take over the phone brand too in the near future.

You know I'm a Moto fan and having read the cnet asia prizefighter award recently (ZN5 vs C902 and ZN5 vs Innov 8), I'm happy ZN5 won. From another perspective, I personally felt that the comparisons between ZN5 & Innov8 was a little "out of range". Against C902 was alright, specs were close, both 5Mp cam and little separate them like 3G or Wifi BUT against Innov8, it's different category all together. Of course I'm still happy ZN5 won - just that a smartphone user usually look for different features as compared to a dedicated camera phone.
I've been thinking for a while, ZN5 will fill in exactly to where E8's soft spot is - camera. If I change to ZN5 for this reason, I'm thinking whether it's worth it, like you, I already have a Canon digital camera for that purpose. If I were to choose, I rather go for VE66 as the ENHANCED Crystaltalk impressed me more. Somehow to me, a mobile phone is more for business purpose and I want all my clients to hear me well, irregardless of how noisy the environment is and I'm looking at towards EXTREMELY well in voice quality, that's one of the reason why I chose Moto. Anyway, my E8 is serving me really well, still enjoy using it and happy so far. I'm hoping my local Moto importer brings in VE66 as my preferred design these days are either slide or bar designs - easy one hand operation. I'll be watching out on VE66's price to see if it is reasonable enough for my budget. Like I said earlier, I'll never be able to catch up with you on Motorola's phone collection.

Compare to most other phones, Zn5 actually isn't that expensive. Some may even be US$0 with contract.
Just curious, does your place have the Aura? Somehow I don't feel the financial crisis has much impact in the mobile phone market, as at least electronic shops in HK are still packed with people. (maybe tourists)
If you do have a chance to come by HK, maybe you can get a Zn5. All phones in HK are unlocked with English menu.
