Motorola hits back with Kodak partnership
5 December 2008 — 4:00 PM
Motorola has teamed up with Kodak to produce a camera-focussed mobile phone that has a "distinctive" look, according to a recent article.
In a piece for the Trusted reviews website, Sandra Vogel looks at the latest offering from the manufacturer that brought us the StarTAC, RAZR and - more recently - the ROKR.
She states Motorola "is in a spot of bother" when it comes to its handset division, but suggets the MOTOZINE ZN5 could be an attempt to win over the public.
Ms Vogel adds that although the five-megapixel camera has arrived in a time where eight-megapixel models are springing up everywhere, it is important to remember "megapixel count alone is not enough".
Kodak's involvement is noted as being "a real boost" for the company and she concludes that although there are better phones available, she would like to see the partnership between the two firms develop further.
The handset is equipped with auto focus, a Xenon flash and support for up to 4GB of memory - which could tempt those selling old mobile phones.
