Touch, Slide, Tune with Motorola ROKR ZN50

Remember when Motorola was the hottest kid on the block? Remember when everyone wanted the Zack Morris, then the StarTAC, then the RAZR? Those days are behind them and the big Moto needs to do something to recapture our interest. And they’re trying to do it in Korea with the Motorola ROKR ZN50.

As you can tell from the ROKR designation, this phone is very much meant to be a music-oriented phone, but it does a lot more than bust out your collection of Ashlee Simpson and Fall Out Boy. You’ll notice that it has a massive 3.2-inch touchscreen display, not unlike what we’ve seen with the MOTOMING.

Instead of relying simply on the touchscreen for everything, however, this phone also comes with a slide-out numeric keypad. It’s not QWERTY, but at least you can take advantage of some T9 action for your texting.

The rest of the feature set is pretty impressive too. There’s a 3.2 megapixel camera, SRS WOW HD sound with equalizer, Bluetooth 2.0, GPS, HSDPA 7.2, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a T-DMB TV tuner. It’s also got a widget-based UI.

Too bad this is for Korea’s eyes only. Will Moto be bringing something similar to our circles?
