Your first reaction to the startling innovative protective touchscreen, or touch cover, on the Motorola Krave, Motorola's first iPhone-like touchscreen phone, is likely to be "How'd they do that?!" That's right, the Krave, a Verizon EV-DO powered model with Verizon's V CAST TV, actually has two touchscreens – the iPhone/Samsung Instinct/LG Voyager/HTC Touch-like 2.8-inch touchscreen, and a clear protective touch-sensitive "touch cover." Touch this clear flip screen and the Krave's main LCD screen underneath reacts. Plus, embedded in the touch cover is the Krave's earpiece. Flip the touch cover up and you hear your caller's voice even though there's no visible wire connecting the speaker to the phone's main body. This clear touch cover is awe-inspiringly clever, even more magical than the suddenly passÃ© finger-swipe scroll. The question is, is it too clever for its own – and your – good?
