That would have been great in ... 2007

For unknown reasons, T-mobile seems to be following the business strategies of Motorola -- a company whose cellphone division is failing miserably. The zn5 is cool spec wise ... if it came out 2yrs ago and now is really late to the megapixel party.
But I digress. I'm curious why T-mobile decided to wait until almost 2009 to realise that it was important to add some new technology like advanced camera phones and touch-based phones to their pathetic moto-rizr clone line-up. To make things even better, most of their new phones don't even support their 3g frequency of 1700. Since that's the case, why did not use the nokia n73, SE k800, or samsung d900 to fight back in 2007 when they were being assulted by AT&T and their iphone. They could have...

no 3g?

I mean, camera's and video on a phone to me is not a major issue, but why no 1700AWS, that is even a bigger issue the frame rates and resolution on the camera.
There is no 3g. This is a camera phone I reckon.
"I mean, camera's and video on a phone to me is not a major issue"

Then this may not be the right phone for you, this is targeted to be a CAMERA phone, not a high speed web phone.

Wow, check out the video abilities

"The ZN5 has a five megapixel Kodak camera with autofocus, xenon flash and panorama shooting mode" and it can capture 176 x 144 videos at 15 frames per second! How lame is that?! Seriously, old cheap phones shoot videos that good.
that *well*
get a camcorder then.

why would you even want to film with a phone anyway?
