Motorola phones identified

The existence of some previously-rumored Motorola phones has been verified, sources out of Taiwan say. A video released to YouTube recently depicted several phones not already out at the time, leading to widespread speculation; among these was a phone with some form of Kodak technology, likely its anticipated five-megapixel camera. That camera is now said to be a part of a phone called the ZN5, due out in Taiwan during the second half of 2008, and likely earlier in the West due to Motorola's US base.

The sources also point to a 3.5G-ready Rokr Z9 phone, and a Q10, which would directly succeed the popular Q9 smartphone. In the YouTube video, a Q9-like device was shown running Windows Mobile 6.1, which has yet to be released. Finally, the second-generation MING handset is also expected in Taiwan during the second half of the year, but will probably remain in Chinese-speaking areas due to its special handwriting recognition.
