Motorola prepares 8MP cameraphone?
This article contains unofficial information.
Motorola SKARVEN is 8-megapixel cameraphone with optical zoom and 2.8” inch, 16 million color display. Similar to the Z8, it uses the kick-slide form-factor but judging from the blurry image, we guess it will also have touch-sensitive buttons. If this information is right, it will be one of the most advanced Motorola phones.
is rumored to be the first phone, launched in cooperation with Kodak. A 5-megapixel candybar, it is also targeted as dedicated cameraphone and as rival to the Sony Ericsson K850 and other models from the class. Rumors say it will be available as the Motorola Z12.
The third new phone is the Motorola TEXEL which is targeted to the music fans. Similar to the E8, it has multilayered keyboard (nine layers of characters) with “morph technology”. This means that each key can display (and respectively execute) nine different functions.
Motorola GENGHIS is the last phone that the site scooped. It is QWERTY-equipped phone for the masses. Considering the Q-family, it may run on WM6 Standard OS but still this is definitely not sure.
According to the site, Motorola will keep the ROKR branding for its music-dedicated phones, but will start other families: ZOOM for advanced cameraphones and MULTI Q for the Q-like devices that have business-oriented functionality.

This is too much good stuff all coming from Moto at once. If it is for real, then it's vaporware - I highly doubt they're capable of competing on all of these fronts.

Motorola is COMPLETELY capable of releasing these phones. think about it, motorola has always invented new technologies. their director was recently changed, and the new one promised to correct the mistakes that the old one did. thats why they are working hard to get BACK on top.
if motorola has another year or two like the last one they had, they wont be making phones much longer. they need to seriously fix their issues, which are many, if they want to stay competitive.
