Verizon wireless to offer Motorola's latest Moto Krave ZN4 and VU204

So far Verizon has released 4 touchscreen phones: LG Voyager in Black and Titanium, LG Dare, and Samsung Glyde. Now Motorola is the last to enter the Arena with the Krave ZN4, which we first heard about in July. It is Ming-styled, with a clear plastic flip over the touchscreen that houses the earpiece speaker. Other features include a 2MP camera, VCast Mobile TV (MediaFLO), HTML browser, EVDO Rev A, Bluetooth, microSDHC memory card slot, and a microUSB port. Pricing will be $149, after a $50 rebate with a 2-year contract.
Meanwhile, the VU204 will be a basic flip phone, under the mid-level W755 and higher-end VU30, and will only have a standard VGA camera, 160x120 display, and Bluetooth. Pricing will be $29 after a $50 rebate with a 2-year contract, and will be be marketed as "Buy 1, Get 3 free". The actual release dates of both devices are unknown, but are expected to be out by the end of 2008.

*UPDATE* The Krave ZN4 will be released on Oct 14th. Pricing is $149 (after $50 rebate) with a 2-year contract, $219 (after $50 rebate) with a 1-year contract, and $349 for those who have fear of commitment.
