Motorola unveils trio of world phones

updated 10:45 am EDT, Thu August 14, 2008

Moto ZN200 W396 and W388

Motorola chose Thursday to quietly release three phones, all of which are targeted at a world audience and with music in mind. The previously slipped out ZN200 has dedicated MP3 software with drag-and-drop support as well as a 2-megapixel camera with video support, but is now known to distinguish itself through a trick slider design. The top sports illuminated icons that show right from its owners pocket whether there's an incoming call, new e-mail, or if Bluetooth is active. It ships before the end of the summer and supports 850MHz GSM plus GPRS data, hinting a possible North American launch.

The W396 has a similar focus for a more economic focus; although it drops to a VGA camera, the clamshell still supports MP3 playback and has both a dedicated music key to jump to the music player and a microSD slot to hold 2GB of data. It ships both in a dual-band version for North America as well as an international model and should appear this summer.

The W388 takes the same features as the W396 but adapts them to a bar design. Motorola plans a similar split in network support and a summer launch window.
