Motorola VE66 – second 5MP model

Motorola VE66 – second 5MP model
In the cameraphone race, Motorola is still a few years behind the competition, with its first 5MP model (the ZINE ZN5) released just a few months ago. As you can see in our review, the cooperation with KODAK resulted in great camera speed and high image quality during the day. Announced today, the MOTO VE66 is a slider, with 5-megapixel camera, touted for its features and image quality. However, unlike the ZN5, the new model will not have KODAK branding and will use a LED flash instead of a Xenon one. On the other hand, having in mind ZN5’s poor flash performance, it isn’t a real drawback.

Although packed into a different form-factor, the VE66 have similar specifications to the ZN5. It also is a quad-band GSM without 3G, but with Wi-Fi. Its display is smaller (2.2” instead of 2.4”) but is also with QVGA resolution and 262k colors. Other features include stereo Bluetooth, microSD slot and FM radio. MOTO VE66 is the first Motorola to offer Widgets, for real time access to web information such as news, weather, social media information and more. The slider doesn’t feature a “hybrid” keypad that changes its characters as the ZN5 or E8, but like the latter has Fast Scroll digital wheel.

Motorola VE66 is expected to be available before the end of the year. There is no official information if T-Mobile USA will offer it as well.
