Verizon releasing the Krave tomorrow

Verizon releasing the Krave tomorrow
We've know about the impending release of the Motorola Krave ZN4 for a while now, but we're glad to hear that it will officially be out on October 14th. It is the first touchscreen phone from Motorola for Verizon, and has an innovative clear plastic flip (Ming-style) with integrated earpiece speaker. Some would call it a "crossover touchscreen flip-phone." One customer was even able to order a unit last week and was kind enough to share some pictures. Pricing is $149 after $50 rebate with a 2-year contract.

If I wasn't locked in a contract I'd get one. I like it.

you can get it out of a contract now...VZW has no contract deals now.

deal isnt really the word i would use. Not that its bad but your paying full retail for the phones which you have always been able to do. Your better off just signing the agreement and getting the phone for cheaper. The nice part is there has been and always will be that phone you would get...

You need to pass a credit check to open a new account!? Preposterous! I hope the other carriers don't hear about this and start doing it too...

It's pretty cool... Touch screen is a lil' slow sometimes but WAAAAAY more responsive than the Samsung Glyde. What I can tell you is that the one wierd thing about the phone is that when you turn the phone for the QWERTY keyboard, the clear flip gets in the way of your left hand. Something you can get used to but it's still kinda awkward. I would recommend this phone for someone who is into new and crazy things.

15. T-Money3000 unregistered

it does but not the way any one with half a brain would want it to.try texting on the full keybord with that damn mini van windshield in the way, the thing has set motorola back. it is trashtastic. and the biggest problem with the phone is that if you flush it down the toilet guarenteed it will plug up.

Enterprise..... Enterprise..... Do you read? I think this phone will.... sell quite qell..... the resembalance to... other ... things... is.... quite logical. wouldn't you agree Mr Spork?

11. unregistered

It does TV too

12. some guy unregistered

its mediocre at best fellas, just pulled the launch kit out Slow QWERTY with the flip open? WTF? Camera seems mediocre Big Touchscreen limited on what you can do through the flip Un-intuitive camera and other controls Cant say for call quality yet, we'll have to see

I have to agree. The clear touch screen flip and the almost magical ear piece is really nice but that is where the pros end. The phone is bearable at best. I do give Motorola an A for effort but I give them a B-/C+ for execution.

14. T-Money3000 unregistered

Well... at least they get an A for

20. unregistered

I give IPhone AAAAAAA+++++++

22. T-Money3000 unregistered

good for u

23. unregistered

the touch screen is just as good as the glyde....HA

Kinda wierd but in the contacts list it comes with the direct line to verizon's warrenty center, apparently moto and verizon have good faith in its reliability.
