Motorola’s mobile division is going through some tough times these days, but we hear that they’re not quite ready to abandon the cellular market just yet. I’m not really sure what Moto can do to dig themselves out this hole, but releasing a bunch of new RAZRs and SLVRs is not the way to go about it.
The new Motorola Z6w slider phone is certainly attractive from an aesthetic point of view, but the bigger selling point is the built-in WLAN connectivity. Better still, this Wi-Fi connection is completely open to UMA GAN R6, meaning that voice calls will seamlessly transition between cellular and VoIP. Sounds like a perfect fit for the guys at T-Mobile, doesn’t it?
In terms of the other features, the slim Z6w comes with the MOTOMAGX operating system, quad-band GSM, Windows Media Player, pre-loaded instant messaging, 2.0-inch QVGA display, microSD expansion, and a 2 megapixel camera. Look for it in Q2 2008.
