It might not be the most exciting new handset to come to light this year, or this month, or even today… But Moto has just added a new piece to the ROKR puzzle this morning. Say hola to the Moto ROKR ZN50. For the time being it looks like this puppy will be confined to South Korea but availability in other markets is likely at some point down the road. As far as music phones go, it’s not terrible:

  • WCDMA 2100/HSDPA 7.2 Mbps, tri-band GSM 900/1800/1900
  • Dimensions: 108.9mm x 54mm x 14.3mm
  • Weight: 143g
  • Display: widescreen touch-sensitive 3.2-inch, TFT, 240×427 pixels resolution, 262k colors
  • Camera: 3.2 megapixels with auto-focus
  • Bluetooth v2.1 + EDR
  • “SRS WOW HD” sound system
  • GPS
  • microSDHC support
  • Battery: 900 mAh
  • Other applications: Alarm clock, calendar, calculator, units converter, world time

At the right price and in the right markets, we can see the ROKR ZN50 shining to some extent. Rumor suggests it will drop near the end of the year and will come with free access to a music download service of some kind.
