It’s been about a year since we had leaked information about the Motorola Z9, and in the mobile industry, that’s a lifetime. Still, Motorola has invested too much time and money into their Z9 to let it fall by the wayside. Following the recent FCC approval of the Motorola Z9, and Moto’s intention to bring the media-slider to CTIA Las Vegas, Motorola has started an ad-campaign to convince us that the Moto Z9 is the handset to buy.
Just to run down the Moto Z9’s spec-sheet again, the media-centric slider will sport a quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900Mhz) radio with dual-band (850/1900Mhz) WCDMA for some 3.6Mbps HSDPA goodness, 2.4-inch QVGA display, 2 megapixel camera, AGPS, and Opera 8 web browser – all in a 1114×53.6×13.9mm package that tips the scales at 140g.
Motorola has chosen to compare the Moto Z9 with the Nokia 6500 and Samsung U700, picking and choosing features that seemingly highlight the Z9’s strengths while playing up the competitions’ weaknesses.
We’ll have to wait and see how the consumer reacts to the Motorola Z9. There are other handsets in the same class that Motorola has chosen to ignore, so there are other options out there. But the Moto Z9’s styling is potentially a deal-maker.
