CDMA ZN5 spotted at Sprint
One of Motorola's newest handsets, the MOTOZINE ZN5, has recently popped up on Sprint's accessories website, according to a Thursday report. As neither the carrier nor Motorola have yet announced a CDMA version of the GSM-only handset, the appearance tentatively supports the existence of a device with both the different calling standard and EVDO onboard. While no other information is available, the Sprint-branded handset is expected to share features with the GSM ZN5 already offered by T-Mobile.
The candybar handset's claim to fame is its 5-megapixel camera developed in conjunction with Kodak, which includes autofocus and a Xenon flash. Kodak also includes some of its software, such as automatic image enhancement, panorama stitching and a direct uploader for its Kodak Gallery photo hosting website, Motorola adds ShoZu software that allows users to upload pictures to social networks such as Facebook.
The GSM versions are also known to support 2G data networks in addition to Wi-Fi capability, and has an integrated HTML browser. Bluetooth support lets users send photos directly to supported printers from Kodak and other manufactures. A microSD card slot lets users add up to 4GB of storage.
While no Sprint release nor pricing information is yet available, the GSM version of the ZN5 is priced at about $100 at T-Mobile and includes a 1GB memory card and 50 free prints at the Kodak Gallery. [via BGR]
