You thought it couldn't happen, but Motorola has introduced a flip phone with a touchscreen, and we'll let you know whether or not this Verizon-tied phone with a 2 megapixel camera, and easy access to V-cast is worth the $200 price tag.
Look below the cut for the written review from Attack of the Show.
What You Need to Know
- With the phone closed you can still access your photos, music, V-Cast TV, and navigation
- Opening the Krave will bring up the touch sensitive main menu and standard phone functionality
- The touch screen is a bit delayed but still feels responsive with the flip open or closed (also haptic feedback)
- In terms of features, the phone's got a lot
- It has visual voicemail, e-mail, web browsing, streaming video on demand and Mobile TV
- With the phone closed you still have access to a full TV Guide
- Technically, it's not a smart phone, but for $150 you can over look some short comings
- The lack of Wi-Fi is a major let down
- The QWERTY keyboard is pretty awkward with two hands, because the flip screen tends to get in the way
- Although the browser has a little cursor for selecting smaller headlines, navigating the web isn't as precise as it could be
- Also, even though the style saves on touch screen smudges, you'll still get them all over the cover
- $150 with contract
- 90% (How do we rate gadgets?)
