[ music ] ^M00:00:04 [ background music ] >> Hi, I'm Kent German, senior editor for CNET.com. Show you another cell phone that debuted here at CES today. It's called the Motorola Z10. That's one of two cell phones that Motorola showed off. It is a very, focused on video. The previous phone was the Motorola Rocker E8, that was very focused on music, and this is very good on video. Thing that's interesting about this phone, it actually records and plays video at thirty frames per second. Now what that means to you is that most cell phones that, have video record at fifteen frames per second, so that's the real choppy, sort of pixilated stuff you see where it can't handle real movements. But at thirty frames per second, which is the same as you'd see on your TV, so very, more fluid movements, a lot better video. So pretty cool. It actually is the three point two megapixel camera, has Bluetooth, it has Music Player as well. But it does have the kick slide form factor that Motorola started with the Riser Z8, which was earlier this year. So that means that it's a slider form factor. It's pretty popular now. But actually when you do that, you can see that the phone bends like this. Now the reason that is, it's actually designed to cradle the side of your face. A lot of slider phones, they're very straight, and a lot of people just can't get used to that, they find it a little uncomfortable. The design does have little quirks, and you can't really push the phone exactly down, you have to bend it back and then move it down. But otherwise, interesting form factor. I did find that the, from the previous slide factor as well, the Slider kick slide form factor as well, excuse me. The keypad is just a little better, the keypad controls are down here. So pretty well designed overall. The camera is here on the back, you see it sort of looks like a real camera. You see that it has a flash, so it has a full flash and everything, looks pretty good for that. Actually on the previous phone you couldn't take the picture unless you slid it up, but this time that's not the case. Also with this phone you can actually upload. You can, once you record your videos, you can edit them using a lot of editing software, and then you can actually upload them directly to You Tube or other video sharing sites. So really designed for sort of that personal social networking stuff, really good for that. So really on that form factor. This phone actually does not have, is, only supports European 3G, or 3G bands right now, so that means 2100, it doesn't support the bands for use in the US. So you will be able to buy this phone in North America unlocked, but it probably won't be with a US carrier here for quite a while, unless they come out with a version that's better suited for this market. [ background music ] Overall though, pretty cool. And like the video recording capability. This is Kent German from CNET.com at CES 2008, with the Motorola Z10. ^M00:02:22 [ music ]
