Better late then never, we say. Two years after its original debut, the Motorola Ming has made its way to the United States. But it's not exactly the Motorola Ming; rather, it's a variant called the Motorola Krave ZN4. Launching today with Verizon Wireless, the Krave ZN4 is one of the coolest phones we've seen in a while. Check out our full Krave ZN4 review and our Krave slide show.

The Krave offers the same basic design that resembles a Star Trek communicator. Yet, it adds more features while offering innovative design tweaks to an intuitive and easy-to-use touch interface. We had a couple of complaints--there's still no Wi-Fi, camera editing options are few, and the Web browser takes acclimation--but the Krave remains a sharp and satisfying device that's sure to become a conversation piece. Performance was agreeable as well, and we loved the bargain basement price of $149 with a two-year contract.
