Review: Motorola krave ZN4
Krave's touch sensitive cover is really cool and clever but it really doesn't add anything to the phone's functionality other than being able to avoid opening it for a few tasks. The best things about the Krave are its music player, its easy to use camera and its wide range of messaging options, even if these messaging capabilities are short-sheeted by the awkward QWERTY keyboard. But the horrible Web browser, the limited options available with the flip closed and the lack of being able to move and re-arrange application and function shortcuts were deal-breakers for me. Many of these problems aren't insurmountable – a software update could solve many of Krave's customization shortcomings. It just seems to me the Krave needed a little more time in the oven.
