Motorola ZINE ZN5 officially hits T-Mobile, paparazzi lose their jobs

There hasn’t been much doubt about Motorola’s MOTOZINE ZN5 hitting T-Mobile, but official confirmations are always a nice thing, no? Starting today, at select T-Mobile corporate locations and online, you’ll be able to pickup a Motorola ZN5 for yourself. A 5 megapixel camera phone is going to seriously hurt those pocket though, right? Normally we’d say yes, but T-Mobile looks to have subsidized the crap out of this thing (or Motorola’s just happy they have a carrier who’s willing to take their goods) as it’s going for only $99 on a 2-year agreement. Not bad at all we say. Here’s a quick spec refresher for you:

  • 5 megapixel auto-focus Kodak camera with Xenon flash
  • Wi-Fi
  • Quad-band GSM/EDGE
  • 350MB of internal memory, microSD expandable up to 4GB
  • 3.5mm headset jack
  • FM Radio
  • TV-Out
  • Stereo Bluetooth
  • Built-in Kodak EasyShare software for instant Wi-Fi uploading to the web

We’ve given Moto their fair share of public beatings in the past, but we’re actually pretty impressed with the price-point here. We think this thing is going to fly off the shelves. What say you?
