Excerpt: These days mobile phone manufacturers are stuggling to differentiate their phone models from everyone else’s. The Motorola KRAVE is part of that differentiation with a unique spin on the traditional flip phone. In this latest iteration the flip is see thru but also enables the user to control some functionality of the phone while the flip is closed. In addition, it includes haptic feedback when you touch the flip as well as the screen behind it.

Pros: Stellar call quality, Great TV and music experience, Beautiful design, Touch capability works through clear lid,
Cons: Typing is very awkward, Touchscreen not always responsive, Sluggish bland UI,
Excerpt: Motorola has entered the touchscreen market (read: iPhone clone wars) with its Krave ZN4, available from Verizon. The handset’s primary contribution to the cell phone technology war is its “touch cover,” a clear flip-up front protective screen that is also touch-sensitive.

Pros: Loud and clear sound quality; bright 2.8-inch touch screen; good MP3 player
Cons: Restrictive keyboard; OS does not work well with touch screen; poor video playback
