Motorola may have finally seen the light. After announcing that their upcoming flagship 5 megapixel cameraphone, the Motorola MOTOZINE ZN5, would be initially launched in Asia ahead of Moto’s home-turf (the good ‘ole USA), we’re hearing that Motorola could be preparing to launch their Kodak-branded Motorola ZN5 to American shores.
Word on the street is that T-Mobile will be picking up the high-end cameraphone from Motorola. And, seeing as how the lack of a proper 3G radio essentially limits high-speed data connections to the UMA-compatible (VoIP) WiFi connection, T-Mobile and it’s @Home UMA service seems like a lock for Motorola’s ZINE lineup flagship.
We’ve already seen the Motorola ZN5’s 5 megapixel camera prove itself in terms of image quality and shot-to-shot times. And, with Kodak’s Perfect Touch imaging technology taking the cameraphone to new, intuitive levels, the Motorola ZN5 is sure to make a splash in the US market – albeit, a smaller splash, what without a 3G data connection.
Chalk this one up as pure rumor, folks. But, the high-quality cameraphone enthusiast within us really hopes this particular bit of speculation pans out.
