Moto's Z6w offers Wi-Fi

The new Motorola Z6w brings Wi-Fi to the masses. CNET brings you the full scoop from the GSMA World Congress in Barcelona.

At the GSMA World Congress, Motorola has shown you can't judge a company by the size of its trade show booth. Though Moto had a sizable booth--and a swanky, two-story meeting area (complete with a bar)--the company's ho-hum announcements were barely audible above the din of the show floor.

Moto's biggest news, which, trust me, isn't saying much, is the Motorola Z6w. Identical to the Z6tv, and Z6c, the Z6w sports the slider design that was started by the Motorola Rizr Z3. Curiously, Motorola said it is dropping the Rizr name from its lineup, so while the design remains, the name has changed.

As for features, the Z6w has pretty much the same set of offerings as its siblings; inside you'll find Bluetooth, a 2-megapixel camera, and a music player. What sets the Z6w apart is its integrated Wi-Fi. No, it's not particularly exciting, but Wi-FI is still welcome. Outside of a few smartphones, Wi-Fi remains pretty elusive in the cell phone world.
