hey stuart, r u an administrator of this site? u sure hang out here a lot.
I went to see ZN5 today. it looked ok. to this point i am in no position to say whether it is good or to comment on the new LJ platform. But, hey just look at the attention this ZN5 is getting here in this forum. like it or not, this phone is a hit.
joe, 15 Sep 2008yeh stuart your right,just dont mind that person..we talk with sense here for those interested... moreMany thanks for your support & understanding Joe, really appreciate it.
This ZN5 will be my next upgrade when it's available in my country. I'm using E8 now, (previously used V8 & Z3) loved the Motorola's built, Linux, CrystalTalk and sound quality. Bonus for me would be the 5MP camera & xenon flash, Wifi. 3G? Not going to miss it.(for me)
Cheers & good day to everyone.

MacLee, 14 Sep 2008Hey, can anybody tell me how the texting work? like does a keyboard appear? or wouold you have... moreYup, MacLee, it utilizes numeric keypad like ROKR E8 so if you are looking for keyboard, it's not available in ZN5. However, the ZN5's keypad is similar (not exactly the same) to E8's, the difference is that in ZN5's you can actually see the numbers 1 to 9 when the phone's off but in E8, you can't see them (hidden in the dark background if not in use, cool feature if you like it). Both still utilizing the morphing keypad design, means the numeric keypads will light up when you want it. So for camera use, only the camera control bittons are lighten up to be used.
You can watch the short video preview here:
Hope this helps.

Let us all go back to helping others on their queries to know more - using the right manner and constructively.
Good day to all.

Anonymous, 14 Sep 2008HSDPA- High Speed Downlink Packet Access. Lol my SE K850 is even better than the ZN5. You see ... moreI have to add to your comments that with an HSDPA phone with unlimited surfing for 3.49/mo who needs the extremely limited access of Wi-Fi! To me, my entire country is a huge Wi-Fi spot!!!
HSDPA- High Speed Downlink Packet Access. Lol my SE K850 is even better than the ZN5. You see SE makes devices that are a joy to use. With HSDPA on my K850 i can download a 7mb mp3/file in under a minute. Wi-Fi is not even that fast on phones and hotspots in most countries want to charge you. The SE K850 is also shorter, more compact, and far better looking. SE installed a PSP-type media manager. The K850 also has an accelerometer for UI Auto Rotation in Multimedia apps, as well as a beautiful screen with an amazing UI thats moddable. The only thing ZN5 has over a K850 is Wi-fi bt with unlimited data plans and HSDPA the K850 is at an advantage. Also it has amazing build quality, it records videos at QVGA 30fps and has a 3-Led set up for focusing to help the Xenon flash, K850 is better.
jjsoviet, 14 Sep 2008This "technologically backwards" phone surprisingly is the best 5mp cameraphone out there. You... moreI enjoy UNLIMITED surfing via HSDPA for only 3.49 euros per month. Do you still think that HSDPA is useless? HSDPA is to mobile phones what ADSL is to PC's. Maybe you think that the world doesn't need ADSL and that dialup internet is sufficient!
Stuart, 14 Sep 2008I really want to apologize to you as I've just counted that this is apparently the 3rd time I'... moreI have owned ALL the high-end Motorolas since 1994. And I mean ALL! The V9 was the most recent. And I have enjoyed the vast majority of them. So much for my "hatred" towards Moto. Now they have going the wrong direction and they don't seem to realize it. Instead, they are still trying to find victims who will pay hard-earned money for their overpriced, paleolithic products. I, for sure, am not one of them!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970And I am even more glad that you will soon join the ranks of all those Siemens fanatics who are feeling soooo lonely and disappointed at club-siemens.net, holding some Nokia in their hands and dreaming back at the glory days when they claimed that THEIR company produced the best phones! Rest assured that it won't be long before you'll be wiping your tears over memories of a ruthless multinational company! How pathetic!!!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I really want to apologize to you as I've just counted that this is apparently the 3rd time I'm replying to your comments, really... I just realized - from your encoded location which is the same. My apologies are not for my comments, instead they are for my multiple ways of replying you that when the others read them, I feel sorry for you, hence, my apologies. I just hope you don't post further comments the way you have been posted them as you'll probably get more people coming after you the next time.
I fully agreed with you on freedom of speech. Everyone's entitle to their own opinion and speeches. Hope you understand that the problem with your earlier "freedom of speech" comments were largely due to the manner they were written & presented, something I'm sure will improve thru time. Just don't be too offensive to some brands and be more gentle with your choice of words will do. All of us here are not enemies, we don't even know each other before coming to this forum so why "stimulate" the situation if it used to be calm, relax and fun?
Cheer Up friend, you have too much anger in you.
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2008Disgusting, tecnhologically backwards phone!Hellooooo!! In the year 2008 people need HSDPA pho... moreThis "technologically backwards" phone surprisingly is the best 5mp cameraphone out there. You and your Nokia, Sony Ericsson or Samsung phones may have the technology, but Motorola outsmarts them with sheer design, call quality, build quality and range of phones. Not everyone understands HSDPA after all.
Spell out HSDPA, what it means, and what is its importance to the world if you can. I dare you.
I have owned many Nokia phones with S60 as an OS. I just got a Z6 a few weeks ago to try out a Linux phone. What an amazing handset!!
The Z6 is by far the fastest phone I have ever used. It loads apps & menus twice as fast as S60 handsets. It also has the best build on a phone I have used in the last few years.
Now I wait for this mobile.. the Zn5. It has great looks despite what others may say. Do people not realize good looks are subjective??
It has everything I want/need. I am so glad that Wi-Fi was added instead of 3G. I am more concerned about FREE data, as opposed to FAST data:)
It is hilarious that someone can actually HATE another mobile phone manufacturer. Do people not like to have freedom of choice?
I buy what I like....regardless of brand. Brand loyalty is a ridiculous notion. What kind of incentive does one achieve from only buying/using ONE brand??
Is SE or Nokia, or LG or Samsung gonna give you free phones for solely buying their brands..LOL
Wake up people....learn what it means to be a savvy consumer.
Nokia may have 41% of the mobile phone market share, but I predict that their poor build quality & sub-par customer service is gonna catch up with them. I am sick & tired of seeing $1000.00 N series phones made out of cheap plastic that looks like it was assembled in some sweatshop.
Motorola is the ONLY company that knows how to properly construct a mobile phone. I will take glass & metal any day over cheap glossy plastic.
Rock on Motorola...you now got some major haters....you must be on the right track.
does anyone have an idea how much would this phone would cost? i hope its not like those 5megapizel nseries that cost too much... :D hehe love motorola ever since... i actually got had 3moto phones already... first was V3 but i broke it, my bad. second was the midnight blue slvrL7i, i lost it... now im stuck with the W230 which is sooo satisfying despite the affrodable cost (around 45$) wohoooo! but im looking forward to buy E8 or this phone in the next few months... just love motorola... MOTOFOREVER!
POPI, 13 Sep 2008I thank the person below. Its funny how people can bash a phone or a compay on an online site ... moreYou obviously are very interested in compact digital cameras equipped to make phone calls over GSM networks. Have you ever thought about frequenting to digital camera forums instead of mobile PHONE sites?????
@nmEX: Numbers speak for themselves. Five years ago there were numerous people bowing to the grandeur of Siemens mobile phones. Time proved that their choices were so utterly in the wrong direction that they led not only Siemens to oblivion but also their heir...poor Korean Benq-Siemens.
I have owned many Moto phones in my life and I have praised them for many of their "praisable" features. Now they are producing NOTHING worthwile and they are going downhill day after day. If they manage to survive financially because of sales to China or India, I don't give them any techological merit!
I an not a real big fan of Nokia, especially when it comes to their choice of materials (where Samsung is an undeniable leader), but I praise them for their marketing choices and they certainly deserve to be very PROUD of their forty percent share worldwide. On the other hand, in my opinion, Moto should be ashamed of introducing an extremely mediocre digital camera (the name Kodak says it all) "attached" to an even more mediocre digital cellular phone for the year 2008 standards.
By the way; nmEX, I have to admit that the usage of the word "disgusting" was indeed rather inappropriate!
