Moto RIZR Z10 Leak
Motorola will already have an upgrade to the RIZR Z8 before the end of the year, says an image allegedly found briefly on British cell provider O2's Coming Soon page. The Z10 would drop the neon green accents of its predecessor in favor of a more muted silver tone. Its camera would be the largest upgrade with a jump from two to 3.2 megapixels, though whether this would affect video capture resolution is unknown. Claims in the spec sheet would also continue the 30 frames per second video playback and 3G Internet access over HSDPA.
O2's alleged teaser is consistent with most of the company's upcoming phone listings and declines mentioning example prices or a specific release date, but says that the Z10 is due to reach its network by October, roughly three months after the Z8 first shipped. Motorola hasn't announced the Z10 and has also stopped short of bringing the Z8 to North America, though both should be quad-band GSM devices capable of supporting Canadian and US networks.
