MOTORIZR Z6, MOTONAV
Motorola's 3GSM offerings conclude with three more products. Foremost is the previously announced MOTORIZR Z6, a less impressive counterpart to the Z8 which nevertheless has features such as a two-megapixel camera, 64MB of onboard memory, and support for MPEG-4 3GPP and h.263 video. The supported music codecs may be the highlight of the phone however, since despite using Linux, it supports DRM-locked WMA files, in addition to MP3, WAV, and AAC/AAC+.
The T815 and T805 are Bluetooth devices that add GPS/AGPS abilities to compatible phones. When in action, a phone has access to on-screen maps, points of interest and turn-by-turn voice guidance, further enhanced by real-time traffic information. The T815 includes MOTONAV software on a memory card, whereas T805 buyers must rely on a subscription service. Twelve months are included for free. The MOTONAV receivers are expected in the second quarter of 2007; the Z6 should ship in the first half ot the year.
