Moto Krave ZN4 and VU204 hitting Verizon Wireless

After releasing some touchscreens from LG and Samsung, Verizon is going to carry the Moto ZN4, or “Krave”. It certainly looks a hell of a lot like the Ming A1200 with the clear flip and the earpiece almost magically floating in that clear piece of plastic. Oh wait, we had one of these! The phone sports a 2 megapixel camera and is pretty standard with EV-DO Rev A, Bluetooth, HTML browser, microSDHC (always a good thing) and support for VCast Mobile TV. At the attractive price of $149 after a $50 mail-in-rebate, and the gimmicky-ness of the clear flip where most consumers hadn’t seen or heard of the Ming, this could be quite a nice dumbphone for VZW. Next up is the VU204 which is just a basic flip phone. Any phone marketed “Buy 1, Get 3 Free” is not going to be the most spectacular product out there, but for those who usually opt for the free or cheapest phones on new contract, this is a pretty decent option. At $29 after $50 rebate, all the features are what you’d come to expect from such a phone: VGA camera, 160×120 display, and Bluetooth. Pretty blah, we say. Motorola, care to cut back on the boring factor?
