Motorola Krave ZN4 Features

Flip and Touch

Krave combines touch-screen functionality with the flip feature users are accustomed to in a standard mobile phone.

Motorola is touting the phone's "two layers of touch."

Open - With the flip open, the phone uses haptic technology that provides "reassuring sensory feedback so you know your touch was registered," according to the ZN4 spec sheet.

Closed - With the flip closed, the clear flip cover helps protect the touch screen underneath, and a side key locks access to the external buttons, preventing accidental use when the phone is in your purse or pocket. But the interactive clear flip cover provides fast, one-touch access to the camera, picture gallery, live TV1, music, VZ Navigator1, and viewing of pictures and text messages.


Fast becoming a standard phone feature, the accelerometer detects rotation and movement to change the display accordingly.

Visual Voice Mail

Visual voice mail feature adds a visual aspect to voice mail, like e-mail, allowing users to pick and choose which voice mails to listen to and in what order.


A virtual landscape QWERTY keypad, haptic feedback.

Direct Mobile E-mail Access
