Motorola announced during the first day of CTIA that its Z9 slide phone is landing at AT&T. The Z9 is the first Motorola handset to support AT&T's Video Share service and is the first cell phone ever to offer AT&T Navigator GPS service. Other features on the quadband (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) handset include dualband (HSDPA (850/1900) 3G, voice dialing, Windows Media Player 11 with support for AT&T Music, stereo Bluetooth, a speakerphone, a microSD card slot, an Opera 8 Web browser, and a 2-megapixel camera.

Though Motorola has retired the "Rizr" name, the trim Z9 is very much a slider phone. It sports the same mahogany color as AT&T's Motorola Razr2 V9, and its navigation keys and keypad buttons have a spacious design. The Z9 also has a 262,000-color display and its side-mounted volume buttons offer Haptics tactile feedback.

The Z9 is available today for $249 with a two-year service contract. We'll report back with a full review just as soon as we can get our greedy hands on an actual device. But in the meantime, check out our hands-on test drive and our Z9 photo gallery.
