After launching the Motorola Razr V3x, it seemed like Motorola was resting on its laurels. While other mobile phone manufacturers made hundreds of handsets, Motorola just made a few. Fortunately, it wasn't sitting around doing nothing, it was working hard creating a whole bunch of new handsets, most of which are being displayed here at CES.
The Motorola Rizr Z6 (pictured) music phone looks very similar to the Rizr Z3 but has a shiny black casing. More importantly, it runs a Linux-based operating system and also features Windows Media Player 11, which supports Windows WMA v10 plus Janus DRM, MP3, AAC, AAC+, AAC+ enhanced, AMR NB, WAV and XMF.
Other features include a 2-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, a dedicated music key on the front and an expandable microSD slot. Our first impressions are positive -- the Z6 looks and feels good and we particularly like the look of the new casing. We'll need to spend more time with it, though, to see what the new Linux OS is really like.
