Motorola Z6w - Future phone

Motorola Z6w

Motorola Z6w

18 February 2008
Written by David Hall

The Z6w is the third handset released by Motorola at the World Mobile Congress 2008 in Barcelona. WLAN connectivity is a key feature of the Z6w, as well as the multimedia support, 2mpx digital camera, USB, and Bluetooth connectivity.

A 2” TFT LCD display with 240 x 320 pixel resolution is located on the front of the handset, along with the navigational and dedicated functionality keys. Because of the sliding form factor, the numerical keypad can be slid away when not needed.

WLAN 802.11b/g networks are supported by the Z6w for easy connectivity to home, office, and public networks. Strangely, it does not support 3G networks. It is compatible with GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz networks, with support for GPRS Class 12 and EDGE Class 12 data protocols.

To provide a seamless and continuous web browsing experience, the Z6w has the ability to automatically switch between WLAN and GPRS/EDGE networks when one drops out of range. It also means you can continue web browsing and making phone calls with the dual-connectivity.

Mobile multimedia is a key focus area of the Z6w, with playback support for many popular audio and video formats. The handset can communicate with Microsoft’s Windows Media Player 11 software, allowing you to sync your music library with the handset with ease. Audio files purchased with DRM copyright protection can be transferred to the Z6w (where the licence allows).

MicroSD memory cards are supported by the Z6w. Cards up to 4GB can be used in the handset, although there is no word yet on the size of the card (if any at all) in the sales package. Motorola have not yet announced how big the internal memory will be.

The Z6w makes use of the MOTOMAGX operating system – Motorola’s proprietary Linux- and Java-based OS.

The Z6w will be available in Q2 2008.
