Motorola RIZR Z10 - Future phone

Motorola RIZR Z10

Motorola RIZR Z10

18 May 2008
Written by Mike Meers

The Motorola RIZR Z10 is a multimedia handset designed to make it easy to publish self-created content directly from your mobile handset to the Internet. The slider has a 3.2mpx digital camera with auto-focus lens, Symbian OS, HSDPA data support, and a microSD memory card future-proofed for up to 32GB card support.

Motorola have selection Symbian version 9.2 as the operating system of choice for this handset, with the UIQ 3.1 user interface to boot. The LCD display on the face of the handset is 2.2” with 16.7 million colours (240 x 320 pixels).

The Z10’s 3.2mpx digital camera has an auto-focus lens and is capable of capturing video at an impressive 30fps. A burst mode can be used to capture up to three consecutive shots per second and there’s a Xenon flash for night time photography. There’s also an “intelligent auto-save” feature that Motorola say can name and save images directly to a media gallery based on content type – interesting!

Storyboard editing on the Z10 allows you to create your own personalised movie clips, complete with backing audio tracks, commentary and visual effects. The Z10 has direct upload support for websites such as YouTube, Google, Yahoo!, and Shozu.

The Z10 has around 77MB of available internal shared memory for file storage, with a microSD memory card slot available to expand things further. The handset will fully support 32GB microSD memory cards – when they become available to the mass market.

Global coverage is guaranteed with support for the UMTS 850/2100MHz and GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz network bands. The Z10 supports HSDPA up to 3.6Mbit/s on 3G bands, with GPRS and EDGE offered for the 2G networks.

Local connectivity with a computer or other accessory can be achieved via Bluetooth (version 2.0) or USB (version 2.0) – a USB data-cable is included in the sales package.

The 1030mAh battery pack provides the Motorola RIZR Z10 with up to 5 hours of 3G talk time, 5 hours of video playback, or 12 hours of music playback.

The Motorola RIZR Z10 will be available sometime in the 3rd quarter of 2008.
