Official Krave Specs:
So what's up with the clear flap? Seems like it would just get in the way every time you go to use the phone then once you flip it open you have an odd shaped and even thicker phone. Whould anyone really take this over the Dare? Moto seems to just fall further and further off the map when it comes to cell phones. They need to pull a Qual Com and just focus on the backbone wireless hardware and leave the phones to LG, Samsung, RIM, Palm and HTC.

wat r u talking about? this is MUCH better then the dare. the dare is just another iPhone competitor that cant stand a chance. the krave isnt an iphone killer, but its something unique, different. it's giving the us the love ppl in asia get from the moto ming. oh and just to let u know motorola made the 1st cell phone so i would call them the ORIGINAL cell phone maker and they shouldnt stop making phones. im pretty sure they've got something up their sleeves with the alexander and atila.

its too bad that Motorola makes crappy phones and is basically losing money by the minute, yet LG holds on to money to make phones like the LG Dare, much better than the Krave, oh and if you've read past articles the Krave is supposed to be imperior to the Dare

LAME.....VERY LAME. MAYBE VERIZON WILL RE-RELEASE THE OLD BRICK PHONES AGAIN WHAT IS THIS JUNK?

Actually, I know plenty of people who would not have given up the brick phones if analog hadn't been killed. They were built with a good level of quality. They would last for 20 years. They also cost alot of money for a phone that did literally NOTHING other than makes calls. Now people expect iphones for free. You can't build a good phone and give it away free. Also, what's the point of using all CAPS??? You just make yourself look like an out-of-control lunatic. Grow up and type like an adult.

i think ppl are blowing things out of proportion. the krave is a good option and the lineup is getting much better. trust me the device isn't juke and look at the features it offers. it's not about vzw trying to win over more so iphone users because you can't. the iphone is a great device, unfortunately, time has proven that their network just doesnt cut it. just look at the device for what it is and it's a great option. the cover is innovative in that how many ppl are concerned about their touch screen phones getting scratched, and it offrs the mobile tv option and the channel lineup is getting better. Hopefully this can get motorola some points in the device department cuz I know they are hurting now. but c'mon guys let's just let the phone come out and see...consumers will speak louder than all at the end of the day..

I've long been a fan of Motorola phones. I have the KRZR K1m through Verizon, and quite honestly, the only other good phone I've seen since then is the Razr2, but people were obviously not looking to pay several hundred dollars with contract for a phone that pretty much does the same as the old Razr, except maybe look a little nicer, and have Verizon strip all of the UI and good features the phone has away from it to make it work like the old Razr. The whole point of investing in some high end device is to have it work the way you want to, and though I haven't even held the Krave yet, it looks retarded and the clear flap does absolutely nothing to improve functionality. Now you're just going to scratch the plastic flap instead of the touch screen, and if you break the flap by dropping the phone, your phone looks like a piece of junk anyway. Its an original idea, but in an economic crisis situation, if you have several people testing in the phone in your facilities, and everyone asking what the clear flap is for, its probably a good idea to redesign the phone and 'cut the flap'.

Had phone in my hand, and I have to say it is sick, the touchscreen is super sensitive, it has a pretty nice looking UI, the picture interface is cool, and you can use features through the flip. Has an accelerometer, and it responds quickly, nice animations between menus and the home screen, I was not expecting this phone to be anything special and it proved me wrong. If it doesnt end up sucking as far as software and warranty issues it will stop my Motorola hating
